Because of my personal interest in the CCIE Security program (at least the written exam the next time I’m up for CCIE recert), I asked Nat Timms if there was an updated CCIE reading list. This list was recommended to me by Nat in her role as CCIE Security program manager; a big thanks to Nat for creating the list that follows!
CCIE Security V4 – Greatest Hits
The following links point to informative and relevant documents and guides to help prepare for the CCIE Security v4.0 Lab Exam. This list is a great place to start but candidates are advised to review the exam blueprints and checklist to help identify other preparation and study areas.
