Cisco Update: Core Knowledge Questions Now Available for All CCIE Labs

December 17th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

From the newest Cisco@Learning Newsletter:
Core Knowledge Questions are now coming for:

  • Service Provider
  • Storage
  • Wireless

I see, life is getting hard also there…

Effective January 4, 2010, the Cisco CCIE® Service Provider, Storage, and Wireless lab
exams will add a new type of question format in a section called Core Knowledge. In
this new section, candidates will be asked a series of four open-ended questions
that require a short written response to be entered into the computer, typically
several words. The questions will be randomly drawn from a pool of questions
on topics eligible for testing. Candidates can review the topics by visiting the
CCIE track information on Cisco.com or the Cisco Learning Network. No new
topics are being added as a result of this change.

Candidates will have up to 30 minutes to complete the Core Knowledge section
and may not return to it once they have moved on. A passing score on the Core
Knowledge section is required to achieve certification. Core Knowledge questions
were implemented on Routing and Switching labs in February 2009 and Security labs
in June 2009, and allow Cisco to maintain strong exam security and ensure that
only qualified candidates are awarded CCIE certification. Candidates with exam dates
on January 4, 2010 or later should expect to see the new question format on their lab
