The CCIE Security certification requires a candidate to pass two exams:
• A 2-hour, computer-based written exam (#350-018) consisting of 100 questions. The pass mark is approximately 70 percent, but varies according to statistics and could float between 65 and 75 percent. This book is designed to help prepare you for this written exam.
• An 8-hour lab examination. The passing score is set at 80 percent. Historically, the lab examination was a full 2-day lab; that changed October 1, 2001. All CCIE lab exam versions are monitored closely and adapted where necessary to conform to the CCIE program standards, which are not publicly available. This book contains supplemental material intended to help you prepare for the lab exam, but that is not the focus of this book.
