Cisco's roadmap explains exactly how the exam review process works:

  1. Cisco reviews each technology on the same quarterly schedule each year to make sure exams align with the latest Cisco technologies.
  2. Cisco announces blueprint changes 3-6 months in advance along with revised exam topics and release notes.
    • Cisco Press announces product update plans for related Official Cert Guide and exam prep materials.
  3. Cisco publishes the updated exam 3-6 months after the exam blueprint publication.
    • Cisco Press publishes updated Official Cert Guide and exam prep materials, if needed, following the Cisco exam update release.
