    Since there are a couple of you guys starting the class, here's some protips for how I got the most out of the class:
    - Attend the live class so you can ask questions as you go but don't bother with note during the live class. Piotr is fast and it's best to let him be fast because you get a recording of the class as soon as the class ends for the day.
    - Rewatch the class during the week. Usually I would watch 1 hour of the recording a day and take a LOT of crazy notes during that time. After you watch your hour, work on the tasks for the week (usually they aren't too hard or long), and THEN work on the lab workbooks. The lab workbooks are crazy long so there's no way you can get them all done in a week or two. Don't stress that you won't. You have four months
    - The ASA and router tasks in the workbooks can all be done in VIRL or with some eval versions of the ASAv and CSR1000v. If you start getting deep into the class where you're at the Firepower, ISE, WSA, ESA tasks, don't waste your lab time on the stuff you can spin up for free or fairly cheap.
    - If you bought the class through IPX, you got the Micronics workbooks along with the IPX workbooks. I bought the IPX workbooks for Security during their Black Friday sale so I know it's going to include the Technology workbook and 5 Mock Lab workbooks at IPX. I would recommend saving these for last when the class is over.
    - As far as the Micronics workbooks, you should get the following:
    Mastering ASA Firewall (349 Pages) - I recommend using GNS3, VIRL or ASAvs to run these topologies. It's a good workbook but if you find the class moving on before you get a chance to get through this workbook, you'll be fine labbing this one your own after the class
    Cisco Firepower Workbook (114 Pages) - This is a pretty easy workbook. I would suggest getting through this a couple times unless you have access to a Firepower device outside of the class, I would take advantage of the lab time with this equipment.
    Micronic's CCIE Security v4 Lab Workbook Vol 1 (1029 Pages) - This lab workbook covers ASAs, VPN (EasyVPN, IOS-ASA VPN, DMVPMN, GETVPN, etc), Remote Access VPN, and Advanced VPN features. A lot of these features and equipment can be virtualized so I wouldn't stress too much if you don't get all the way through this lab workbook by the end of the class.
    Micronic's CCIE Security v4 Lab Workbook Vol 2 (409 Pages) - This lab workbook covers the old IPS, WSA, and ACS. You might have to buy an old IPS if you are serious about going for the v4 CCIE security lab or you can just wait for the new one and skip that aspect. There are demo licenses you can grab for the WSA after the class on your own. Not sure about the ACS but a lot of the ACS features are covered in ISE as well. Lots of the same features and functionality in ISE t
    Micronic's CCIE Security v4 Lab Workbook Vol 3 (507 Pages) - This workbook goes through ISE, IOS security, and network attacks. I would definitely go through this one while having access to the full lab. You can do a good part of it in your own lab but the size of the topology you have in the lab is useful for this workbook

    Good luck and I hope this helps!

    Thanks for the tips! I do have a question though you mentioned not wasting the lab time, don't you get unlimited lab time for this?

    Yep. You do. I'm more talking about priority of things to get done. 4 months might seem like a lot but when you factor in work, life, re-watching the videos, and thousands of pages of lab guides, it's really not that much time

    So on a scale of 1-10, how well do you think the class prepared you for the ccnp sec exams?

    I have no idea... I am not taking the CCNP Security exam. I think a lot of the content was probably above it to be honest. A lot of the curriculum was really about getting up to a CCIE-written level but at the same time, a lot of what is being taught is stuff that's beyond the CCIE Security blueprint because it's really close to getting refreshed and they don't want to give you stale knowledge

    Nawww... By week 2 or 3, they'll have realize what they got themselves into. Week 1 is just ASA overview, packet flow, etc. Week 2 is NAT types, configuration, troubleshooting, etc.

    How long did it take to get the workbooks and the labs setup for your class? I guess I'm just getting anxious haha, not too much to go over on the first week.

    I did actually learn a few things in the first class. Was a good refresher too. We haven't got our lab credentials yet, so I'm really excited for that. I figured he would have sent them by now?

    I ran into an issue with IPexpert billing, and thanks to iris for all your help! I think it's all squared away now, I had to dispute the charge with IPexpert, and then I went and paid Micronics directly, and since I got the extra training through IPexpert which brought my total to 5k, I was able to work with micronics and get their CCIE Security bootcamp in September plus this course for 5k so I kept the total the same!

    Sounds like there was an issue with the lab, physically, so Narbik is going to take a look. Week 2 is underway and NAT/PAT/DNAT etc.. I'm not super excited that pre 8.3 is still on the CCIE Security lab but I'm learning a lot more about that through this! So far this course has exceeded my expectations and I'm looking forward to the next 14 weeks

    Nice! He's going over post-8.3 code for NAT, right? He did for my class. He ended up having a separate day of old IPS and pre-8.3 code for the people who planned on taking the CCIE Security lab as it is now but it was just that one week thankfully.

    He's doing both in the same lesson, we're going over post 8.3 and then 8.2 code immediately afterwards, so Dynamic Nat 8.3, then Dynamic Nat 8.2.
    I think that may make it easier to go through it all, we had about half our class say they are at least interested in CCIE Security so that may be why he changed the format a little. It does look like it'll extend ASA to week 3 though.

    Week 3 was ASA in my class too. That's normal. My class went an extra week. One good thing is that he will extend the class if needed rather than cheat you guys on content or skip stuff altogether.

    That's great to hear, I'm glad they won't rush or skim over anything to make sure they fit in the timeline. It looked like they wanted to finish ASA this week but I'm fine with extending it, it's a lot to take in.

    Like drinking from the firehose, right? It only gets better here on out. Be sure to do the rewatch and I promise I'll finish my notes this week. I got a little crazy with work and my security lab so I didn't have time to rewatch the very last class and take notes on it but I have a demo guide I need to write on Lancope and FireAMP so I guess I'll need to watch that last class in order to write that guide up.

    Exactly! We just ended class now, and we decided on having it next week even with Easter so we don't extend too much into summer. How is your security lab going? I've followed your blog a bit and have mine similarly setup for the most part.

    What is Lancope? I see that's something new Cisco purchased, how does it tie into the security track?
