According to a post on Networking Forum Cisco is doing away with the OEQs. No idea if this is definitely happening, or when they will announce it if so, but I’m definitely relieved if it’s true. I was dreading the OEQs.

Let’s all hope it’s true!

Obviously it will be one less precaution to stop cheating, but I think it’s also a hindrance to those who do not cheat. I believe with the Troubleshooting and Configuration sections, the CCIE Lab exam is difficult enough.

What do you guys think?

Update: INE has posted this as well.
