This is a 5 day class to designed to prepare delegates for the Cisco CCIE 360 R&S written exam. This course will help to prepare delegates who are looking to re-certify their CCIE as well as first time CCIE students. The written exam consists of 100 multiple choice questions and is 2 hours in length.
