    Any tips for the exam? I'm planning to take tomorrow, and I don't have to much experience with CCNA...

    Did mine today and fot 28.17, I missed one question because I did not read the choices properly, damn I am a bit pissed off, at first I was happy with having more then 28 but when I saw the questions review I was pissed as I clearly new that question and made stupid mistake.
    Hope that will not be the reason not t get the scholarship.

    How do you know that you passes? Is there publicly known pass score threshold?

    Think he must of meant he just "finished". As there is no passing score and no one knows what they are looking for score wise. Getting over 90% could mean you have no chance of getting chosen for all we know.

    Just finished the assessment. 23/30. Some very typical poorly-worded Cisco-style exam questions (one in particular about default gateways that made no sense).

    Just happened to know about this program last week when I surfed the Cisco official website. Felt like this is quite interesting and eager to learn new things, I registered it. Didn't think much about it till last night I received an email from them to take an assessment test for technical gauging. Was anxious about it but took the bold step to take the exam. When I finished it and clicked on the "Submit" button, there was a sign of relief from me, phew! And I was surprised that the result was out immediately and I feel so glad that I passed the test.
    After reviewing the mistake I got, I think I need to improve on my Linux knowledge.

    Best wishes to you guys/ladies on this Cisco program too.
    Working on:
    1) MCSA 2012 - 410
    2) Cisco Cyber Ops 210-250 (SECFND)

    I still haven't heard back from Cisco about this, have you?? I am curious what the passing score to get a Cisco scholarship. AND wonder how many participants they had, this could be why it is taking awhile for a response. Cheers!

    My company recognizes this cert and will reimburse costs, time etc.. The thing is can anyone just study/take this exam or you have to be chosen so far?

    I think the assessment is to do two things:

    1. Make sure that people have a VERY basic understanding as stipulated in the program criteria - how successful would the low scorers actually be?
    2. To make sure that people coming into the program have the most likely shot to succeed.

    This is the same reason some colleges have close to a 100% graduation rate. Not because they are amazing at turning around low grade students into high grade student. They are very picky with who they let in.

    Maybe I'm wrong ... but I would think the only people that get "cut" based on assessment would be those who score very low. I am only basing this on what Cisco has already told us.
    I think that BuzzSaw is on the right track with this line of reasoning. The logistical efforts that would be required of Cisco to extract, verify & then filter yet more candidate metadata to decide which applicants to admit would daunting & expensive to say the least. Additionally, Cisco do NOT want a massive failure to stain the moniker of this new certification by risking enrollment of borderline candidates. Having a failure rate of 40 or 50% would deal quite the setback to their goals of getting 10,000 people certified ASAP.

    Although we may not like the methodology, the most probable metric for admission will be assessment score. I scored 27/30 on September 8th & I'm not counting on being offered a place in the program. Its pure numbers & it will be interesting to see if Cisco publishes the statistics of this application & selection process. Wouldn't hold my breath on that one.

    Eratz, can you share with us your GPEN course & certification experience? What did you read/do to prepare for their course? Did you take the certification exam? The GOOD leads....just give us the good leads... TIA

    I am on Day 5 right now. If you do pen testing then this class will help you understand the business side of the house but be mostly review. If you do incident response, or vulnerability management then you have a good baseline of knowledge that this class will expand to prepare you to really start learning the advanced stuff with a cert like the OSCP. It's really a lot about tools and a high level overview of concepts. You can take these back with you and use them to develop more polished and advanced usages. Each day covers around 190 slides and its all packed with info. This class would really help a person studying for their CASP, imo. I will probably take the exam in a few weeks after I return home. The plan: lab everything up, say the appropriate amount of curse words, build my index, take the first practice exam, more curse words, refine index, lab again, second practice exam, say many self affirming things, schedule then take and pass the exam.

    Saw on LinkedIn that people were being accepted. Anyone else get accepted? Congrats if you did. I didn't apply. I wish you all the best of luck, and I hope this thread was useful to some of you.

    I haven't heard anything from Cisco yet.

    Does anyone know if they are notifying individuals who have been accepted into the program and those who were not accepted?

    I haven't received a notification either way yet, and I was in the first group to receive the other emails. It's only mid october, so I wouldn't be concerned.

    I was originally hoping they would be starting trainings by Nov 1st as I know they ask for a 90 day commitment and the timing would have worked well. I wonder how rigid the training structure will be.

    Oh, my dear Eratz, you've abandoned in that scheme your own cherished moniker: "I drink and I know things" Revisit that plan & include your own words of wisdom. Best of luck.

    Also, no word from Cisco for me with respect to the CCNA Cyber Ops scholarship....yet.
