    This would be a tough decision to make. From a learning standpoint studying the new material would be preferable, it's what's relevant in the market today and it's what will help you out the most.

    The only thing that comes to mind as a positive for doing it now would be the different equipment that would be used. From what it looks like right now olives will not be as useful as they have been in the past. You should be able to use olives to study for most of the SP exam but not all of it.

    I think it might be better to do it now since Olive can do most of the preparation.

    I thought it was changing in OCT as well. Got some inside info Hoogen?

    Nice setup you got there, it should cover most of the SP exams. The other thing that you might need to look into is an MX router. There is a heavy portion in the SP that will cover MX functionality.

    If you would check the exam registration page, you can still register for some dates in Sunnyvale in November for JNCIE-M... Also I was speaking to a couple of guys there has to be beta exam before the actual exams start... And I haven't heard of any Beta exams yet... So I would safely assume since some dates for JNCIE-M point to December in Amsterdam... We would still have these exams. Again I did read that it would take 12 months to replace all these exams... So I am sure there is time...

    Very good point and I can echo what you heard. The JNCIS-SP exam will be ready by OCT but the actually lab exam(s) aren't ready so it's safe to assume that it's a bit off.

    That makes it somewhat of a safe bet to go for the current JNCIE-M for the people who are close.
