The only thing I would say to anyone who will take the new version is don’t fear any change, or addition to the updated version of the lab. When version 4 was announced there was so much fear over the troubleshooting section, and MPLS being added. Change brings fear, unnecessary fear. I ended up failing version 3 of the lab two weeks before version 4 came out. I wasn’t ready for it. So I took two more years before making another attempt (to be fair we had another child between attempts…) Then I passed version 4 on my first attempt. Simply because I was ready to take it. INE, Narbik, and IPexpert will have their material updated to get you through the new version. Study hard, and run with it…

Yea I know there is not much here, but I don’t want to give my long drawn out opinion on a version of the lab I will never have to take. I don’t think it is fair to anyone reading this that will take the new version :) I would strongly pay attention to what the trainers have to say though.

    easiest way to pass any ccie track is when it is fresh 😉 hardest time when the version is going to expire. we all know the reasons :)

    look at V4 now, its insane to put so much of faults in each ticket to control the numbers.

    they want to push folks to V5, coz nobody is gonna take it in the first few months !
