    Anyone else besides us accepted for this cohort?

    That's where I am. Funny enough I missed the email the first time it was sent and had been eyeballing the CCNA Security, so at the moment I'm taking CCENT though Cisco's ondemand platform. Trying to finish it before the CCNA Cyber Ops now.

    Thank you OctalDump, I followed youer advise and it worked.

    My class runs the following dates:

    June 20, 2017 and the end date is September 20, 2017.

    Is there anything I can do in the mean time to train for this course?

    I was accepted for the april 2018 group. Sooo far away, I may accidentally forget about it until the time comes. But, I'll just study for my CCNa r&s exam in the meantime

    Just a heads up. In order to get the voucher you have to complete the labs as well as getting medals. The videos don't seem required. Do not know how I feel about the material for the exam. I think that people in the later cohorts will have a better pass rate.
    These articles and posts are my own opinion and do not reflect the view of my employer.

    ITPro.TV released some videos for the exam. I am curious how well their content will match up with the Cisco offering? So far their training seems to cover basic network operation but they are still in the process of releasing material.

    I am in the first cohort and will schedule my exam somewhere in the beginning of February. I was pleasantly surprised by the quantity of the material and the coverage of the topics, but I don't know if these materials are enough for the exam. Some of the questions are confusing, and from the few people who had taken the exam, I've heard that there may be questions not covered in the course. I am curious if there are other people in the first cohort here. Will keep you updated after I take my exam.

    If I were you and I still wanted to get in, I would email them and ask if they would let you in. It's worth a try. Follow OctalDump's instructions above to get onto the Support Page.

    Hi Everybody,

    As I'm in the1st cohort, AND I've sat & passed the 1st exam (SECFND 210-250) I thought that I'd share a little info about what t expect, what to do, etc.

    1. Don't try to start early. The 1st course (of 3 required is the Intro to Cybersecurity on the Cisco Networking Academy. However, you MUST enter
    the Net Academy site from the main training site or it won't register in the main training site.

    2. The main 2 courses are, in order, the SECFND & the SECOPS. You'll be ported into a training site where there will be 14 or 15 chapters.

    3. Each chapter has sub-sections. Each sub-section has a video, text with images & a little qizz-let(1 to 4 questions).

    4. Each chapter has a lab & a full quiz at the end of the chapter. You MUST complete all chapter quizzes with a "Bronze" or higher medal AND
    complete all labs to earn that voucher for the free certification exam. You can take the chapter quizzes as man times as you like.

    5. Don't waste your time with outside blogs or study threads. That is already set up for you in the main training site. Mentors are involved & assist.

    6. There is a weekly, 2 hour, WebEx with your mentors to go over that weeks assigned chapters AND a final review for each cert exam. ATTEND
    THESE MEETINGS...THEY'RE MASSIVELY HELPFUL!!!

    7. Lastly, the SECFND exam is 65 questions with a 90 minute time limit and a minimum passing score of 825/1000. All multiple choice and drag 'n
    drop. Questions are ALL from the exam material. No tricks or misleading questions. Some bad wording but overall, VERY straight forward. Hell, I'm
    an idiot and I scored well over 900 in 45 minutes.

    Bottom line: do ALL of the course work thoroughly, study what you don't know thoroughly and you'll have enough to pass. Best of luck to everyone.

    Hey all,

    Reporting late due to some busy days of work and study, but as promised, I wanted to share my experience of the SECFND exam, which I thankfully passed!

    If you go through the course material and really focus on those topics described in the exam guide, you will have no problem passing it! The questions were a mix of single answer, multiple choice and drag & drop. I was worried hearing about the misleading nature of the questions, but I found the majority very straightforward and to the point. Only a couple were ambiguous, and for those I found it helpful to eliminate the wrong answers and then only had 2 choices to think about. Of course, I don't know what answers I got wrong, but my score was not bad, so I'm happy!

    Oh, and I do recommend to be familiar with the features and data formats of the different security devices covered in the course!

    The CEH has a lot of secondary overlap material with the 210-250 but the CEH is an attacker's exam whereas the 210-250 is a defending exam. Also, as the CCNA Cyber Ops is an entry level cert, the CEH has a much wider scope & depth of coverage AND a minimum experience requirement of 5 years of total security work. We'll see what level of difficulty the next 210-255 exam brings.

    I haven't heard anything yet.

    Anyone who has already done the class/test, how much Linux do I need to know? I'm in the March cohort. Also, how much time per day did you spend? I know everyone is different, but I'm trying to just get a feel for how much time I'll need to spend on it.
