    The latest blueprint for every Cisco cert exam can be found here. Though the topics for CCNP Security are pretty short and vague, even by Cisco standards. Things like "Configure & verify Layer 2 and Layer 3 security features."
    IT Certification - Cisco - Cisco Systems

    I hear SECURE has large overlap with CCNA:Sec (but goes deeper in some areas), so you may want to tackle it first for this reason.

    That is true, and you could refer to the blueprints of the older corresponding exams for expanded definitions of the topics - there will be things taken out from and added to new exams, so don't go entirely by the older blueprints, but they at least provide some guidance on what the recently shortened objective meant before.

    I started with FIREWALL first and I seem to be doing fine with my studies. I was a little tired of IOS sec when I finished CCNA Security. I'll probably go back to SECURE after FIREWALL.
    SECURE is not an official pre-req for the FIREWALL exam...you can go any order you want. It's just recommended SECURE,FIREWALL,VPN,then IPS.

    i'd do SECURE first due to the overlap in topics.
    WIP: IPS exam

    Hey, I think Secure is best choose for your start. Its easy, strong and base for CCSP.
    i 'm also going for SNRS/VPN then PIX/ASA, IPS then CCIE Security. If you want to join me, u r most welcome.
