OEQ (Open Ended Questions) Removed from CCIE RS and Voice EXAM May 11, 2010

Posted by ZoeL in CCIE LAB, Certifications, Cisco.

Great news,


at last…. Cisco removed the OEQ for Routing and Switching and voice track.
According to Cisco’s latest announcement, OEQ removal due to establishment of new exam section :  troubleshooting.

The exam itself now consist of 2 parts. Troubleshooting (2 hrs) and Lab (6 hrs). Given certain number of tickets to be solved for Troubleshooting sections before enter the lab portion.

So, what happen to people who has taken CCIE exam before this changes and failed due to insufficient score because of OEQ?. Cisco said the OEQ itself not consider as improper nor irrelevant method ( http://ciscocert.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/6003 ). Troubleshoot section considered as suitable replacement and sufficient enough to proof candidate readiness yet stands for Cisco Quality on CCIE Certification.

I guess (take this as my personal opinion), pros, contras and bad comments from many people around the globe at least give Cisco second thought about his “not-so-popular” Open Ended Questions.
