    I'm probably getting dropped :/

    I'm smack in the middle of the OSCP and don't have the time for both. I requested a move, but was denied. Oh well ... OSCP >> CyberOps I guess ...

    What kind/type of questions do they ask you in the "survey exam"?

    Not asking for a brain dump or anything remotely close to that just curious to the type of questions.
    Is it CISCO specific?

    Same as it's stated in the overview of the scholarship. Windows, Linux, Network and Security. Some questions from Windows were ridiculous. General questions though, nothing related to Cisco products. AD: Yeah, actually I recall one question related to Cisco Networking terminology, do not know whether it's a industry standard or really Cisco question.

    Overview of the scholarship? are you talking about the following qualifications?:

    "Basic technical competency (possess one or more of the following):
    • Cisco certification (Cisco CCENT certification or higher)
    • Relevant industry certification [(ISC)2, CompTIA Security+, EC-Council, GIAC, ISACA]
    • Cisco Networking Academy letter of completion (CCNA 1 and CCNA 2)
    • At least three years of combined experience in approved U.S. military job roles
    • Windows expertise: Microsoft (Microsoft Specialist, MCSA, MCSE), CompTIA (A+, Network+, Server+)
    • Linux expertise: CompTIA (Linux+), Linux Professional Institute (LPI) certification, Linux Foundation (LFCS, LFCE), Red Hat (RHCSA, RHCE, RHCA), Oracle Linux (OCA, OCP)
    "

    So i take it the pre enrollment "exam" asks questions that as to do with what they have outlined in the qualifications.
    Makes sense. I guess I should just do it and find out for myself.

    It was a good thing that I checked my email last week. Took the exam yesterday got 79%, did not realize that I missed out in answering some of the questions.

    They are evaluating the exams every Monday and Thursday.

    Well, yeah generally you are right, although I meant something else. There were specifically mentioned 4 topics (as I wrote) in the first email, or somewhere. But you really do not need any of those certification to pass. I just think that even though CCNA:Cyber Ops should be entry level, they required those certification to raise a bit requirements, so only people really interested in the topic will pass. I honestly think, that one year ago I would not pass. And same thinking about the most of freshmen from universities.

    Anyway, exam questions in Windows really did not need certification - very easy, Linux was tricky, but the most should be answered by a regular Linux user, networking quite tough for me - but my weak topic, and security part, I honestly do not remember any question which made me stressed. So the conclusion? You really do not need any of the certification, but really newcomers will fail at the end and will have to pay for the exam. :]

    The pre-test took me about fifteen minutes, and I got an 85%. If I had taken my time and read each question thoroughly, I would've broken 90%. I thought the test was fair in terms of the questions. Yeah, some of them were beyond entry-level for their respective subjects, but you only need a 75% to pass. You could bomb one of the subjects, and still pass the test.

    Nope. Last email was for the assessment (came at 8:45PM PT on the 5th of November). I was hoping to hear something last night. But, been checking email all night waiting for a word on it.

    Still nothing.

    Hi,

    same, December as well. Anyway, when we are starting in like 2 months, I would like to raise a question about study resources. As well as others I would like to pre-study something, so I can pass faster and kill some Christmas boredom.

    So my question is, does anyone has an experience with the official guides? I have just looked on Amazon to check the price and reviews and some bad reviews catch my eye. Amazon Link is one of them. Can somebody who has already experience review the books a bit? Honestly I have already bought technical books before and actually a good portion of them are really bad. People really write garbage very often. The errors in the link above are really ridiculous sometimes and I do not want to spend 70 USD for badly written - un-reusable resources of nonsense. I will prefer to pay those for online resources or different book if the quality is questionable.

    I got accepted as well. I will be in the December cohort. It was possible to choose two cohorts in 2018 (April-August, August-December)

    I look forward to learning with you all.

    Our records indicate that you’ve successfully completed the Prequalification Exam with a score 75% or higher in the required timeframe. Your score was 83%.

    Congratulations! You've completed the hardest part of the application process. We are now inviting you to Step 3: the Student Preference Survey. The information you provide us with will allow us to schedule your start date in the program. Students must complete this final step in order to be accepted into the program.

    Please complete this survey no later than December 9, 2017.

    Please note: We are actively accepting applications for Cohort 5 which begins December 28, 2017, and ends April 28, 2018. If you would like to participate in this cohort, you will need to complete the entire application process no later than December 8, 2017. No exceptions will be granted for students requesting to participate in Cohort 5 after this date.


    Please Read and Review the Following Frequently Asked Questions

    I submitted my survey - does this mean I'm accepted to the program?
    Yes! Candidates must complete all 3 steps of the application process before they are accepted into the program. Once you submit the Enrollment survey, you will receive your acceptance and cohort confirmation notice via email.

    When will I hear back regarding results of the Enrollment survey I just took for the Cybersecurity Scholarship program?
    Results for this Enrollment survey are processed every Monday. Candidates will be sent a confirmation email within a week of their submission with directions regarding their cohort start date. The entire application process takes approximately a month to complete. Some Candidates have a longer application experience if they take more time to complete the directions outlined in each step.

    Is there a time limit on the Application process?
    Yes. We ask all candidates to take no more than 30 days to complete each step of the application process, or 90 days to complete the entire application process. We will do our best to reach out to any candidates that appear to have stalled in the application process.

    If it is determined that you have stalled, your application will be marked as “Inactive” and you will need to contact us in order to have it reactivated.

    What if something goes wrong?
    Create a ticket here: https://ciscocert.secure.force.com/english/MainPage. It will be filed with the right person to help you with your question. We are in this together!

    No. everything is digital. Books are optional, considering their buying, but could not find any review. Seems like an expensive paper weight.

    They give you an online course, pretty good one BTW. The books you buy yourself, either ebooks, paper ones or both. Like in my case that I didn't notice that the paper book included testing software.

    The mentors tell me that the online course and reading of the NIST documents should be enough. The labs are great, but I always like to have a reference book.

    Yeah, that's what I would like as well. Having a reference book even for a train reading. But I have read comments and it seems that the books are not as good as you would expect from official guide books. Any idea a book?
