NSE8 certificate

Hello

 

I have passed the NSE7 certificate and managing to pass the NSE8 .

Since there is not too much information \ material on this certificate , and no material in the network security academy , I wanted to ask here :

- If anyone familiar with the material ?

- Which products are involved in the NSE8 exam ?

- Is it much difficult than the NSE7 exam ?

- Does anyone familiar with sites that give courses and material on this exam ?

 

NSE8 certified engineers , can you please share you experience at the NSE8 exam ?

 

Thanks

Thanks

Thanks

    It's  a combination of both but I would  suggest talking to the folks.  Be warn of the "expiration"  to TBD.

    Hi,

     

    Its a more of designing the Network and Security infrastructure , in case of some issues you should know how to troubleshoot as well.

     

    5.2 Lab is expiring and soon 5.6 lab will be out not sure .In 5.6 they are planning to add few more technology and products .So hurry up .

     

    If you appear written in 5.2 ver it is valid for 2 years .

     

    Once you pass the lab then only need to appear for written every 2 years to keep certification valid otherwise lab also will expire .

    Thank you guys !

    I have another question regarding the tasks.

    As you said , it is a 48 tasks . But let say I didn't accomplish all the tasks , there might be some difficult to accomplish , in that case how they will calculated the final mark and if pass\fail ?

    How many tasks do I need to accomplish to pass the exam ? all of them ?

    This is not explained in the NSE_8_Certification_Public_Handbook file.

    Thanks

    Thanks
