    Has anyone noticed the low amount of CCIE Security success stories and posts on INE forums? Why is there a such a low interest? Do you know of anyone passing the Security lab recently with a success story write up? Do you think the Security lab will be easier or harder than R/S?

    I think we all know that R/S is the most popular of the tracks. It's also true that you don't see many success stories in Security. I'm not sure why that is. Maybe it's because Security engineers are secretive..

    This target is a bit of a moving one dependent on how much I get done... Still Late Feb.. for now. Started this week by looking at some videos, PKI and stuff I've not done with an IOS device before.

    So there are now dates for September 2016 in London for CCIE Security. That is my goal now, unless the version changes between now and then. I figure if I pass the written exam very early '16 and book a slot for then I should be able to beat any cut off, assuming of course any new version change is announced after March of course.

    OK! Time to record some progress. 10 hours of videos so far, mainly on ASA stuff, nothing really nasty encountered so far, which isn't a surprise given I did the Firewall exam when I started CCNP: Security back in '13. Still aiming for Late Feb for the Written, but think this may slip to early March. I want to get the written out of the way quickly in order to get a seat in September in London.

    Up to 12 hours, progress a bit slow, work has been busy and I've got some life stuff going on. I've also appeared to have developed an unhealthy obsession with security, and I'm starting to really *learn* about how devices really work. Having now done an R&S and been through that beginning to ending learning process has changed how I approach any piece of learning I can do.

    Seriously, I am on another level compared to two years ago!

    Good luck, Gorebrush. I will be checking in here and there. What is your attack plan on ISE? I really enjoy that section of the IE Security and was just curious.

    You are making me very very very tempted to beastmode the CCIE Security, Gorebrush. If I end up changing tracks, I'm blaming you and Micronics :P

    Do it!

    I'm still slowly churning away. Bad time of year with Xmas and so forth, but I'm going to beastmode it for the next few months as well.

    If I were to ever do CCIE, Security is what I'd likely go for. The question I have, though, is what level of R+S is recommended for the Security track? Same? One level lower?

    You don't need to be a CCIE in Route Switch for CCIE Security (Or for any other IE for that matter), but you certainly need to be at least a CCNP. For example the videos I've been watching assume a CCNP in R/S and don't explain things like Route Maps for BGP because it is assumed that you know this.

    OK enough messing about - just booked the written for end of March.

    I'm hoping I can get a seat in London in September for this one, provided they don't change it to v5. If that happens then I'll probably do what I did with R&S and hold off to see some of the materials.

    Good luck, I don't think you'll need it though.

    40 hours on the reading clock now, made semi-decent progress lately, but I intend to majorly step it up.

    I would curious to see how soon they change the CCNP track again.

    The new 300's are already out of date in some parts.

    Focus on CX which looks to be end of life soon in favor for Sourcefire.

    July 11th - I have rescheduled my written again. I didn't want to but progress has been terrible this last few months. I won't go into why, but I have some very serious life issues going on at the moment and that has impeded my progress more than I would have liked but this could not be helped.

    Coming soon: - actual progress.

    You'll get back on, I'm sure. Seems the dates I set too always get pushed back. While life isn't getting in the way too much, besides you know the first baby in June, I constantly push back what is in my mind to be a safe time for a lab attempt. :/

    Good luck to you man. Keep strong!

    Heh, the life stuff has actually been ongoing for quite some time, and I'm going through the worst bit now, but it's nearly over

    Having done one CCIE I know full well that you need to be in the groove to get a lot of work done so whilst I've been disappointed, I know that this is par for the course so I'm not too worried about it. In the grand scheme of things I've done well to get to this point.

    Coming from an entry Cisco candidate, keep your head high sir! I recently had to take 2 weeks off from my CCNA studies to recover from not one but two tonsillectomies. Will follow your thread while rooting for you and the other Cisco Veterans!
