We wanted to provide our students with advance notification of some upcoming online classes here at INE. While we hope to see many students in the actual live events, on-demand versions will indeed be made available the week following the live, online version.
September 13 – 17th, 2010 CCNA Wireless 5-Day Bootcamp
September 15 – 17th, 2010 Security for CCIE R&S Candidates 3-Day Bootcamp
September 29 – Oct 1, 2010 IPv4/IPv6 Multicast 3-Day Bootcamp
October 4 – 9th, 2010 Online 6-Day CCIE R&S Bootcamp with K. Barker and A. Sequeira
We all know that the Version 4 CCIE R&S exam is a dramatically different animal from the Version 3 lab. In fact, there have never been such big changes in this track since the move from a two-day format to a one-day format.
I suppose it is no surprise, therefore, that we are seeing a much greater number of students passing after a reread than ever before. Also, there have been reported cases on IEOC.com where students have received their passing mark after opening a Support Ticket with Cisco Certification.
The reread situation is certainly a big change for those of us instrcutors that have been doing this for a long time. I can recall equating the purchase of a reread with the purchase of a local lottery ticket. Cisco would smile and take your Credit Card number, but it was very, very rare that someone would actually pass as a result of the purchase. And this was no surprise then really either, as the exams at the time were very mature and ambiguity-free.
The latest reread success was just reported in IEOC.com. Username sammy purchased a reread on July 9, 2010 and received his digits today – CCIE # 26484. That is just awesome.
Please be advised that Cisco has indeed revamped their reread policy, however. You need to score “close enough” to passing in order to qualify for a reread. If your have indeed done so, you will have a link for a reread in your score report email from Cisco. They do not publish the criteria for the reread determination.
