I may be taking a look at it since I have a Vue center about 6 blocks from my job. This will be after CCNP/CCNP:S of course.
Next Up: CCNP CCNP:S

Every time I've taken a certification test at a testing center, I've had a camera on me the ENTIRE time I took the test. I promise its easier for me to slip some crib notes past a proctor in a room full of test takers. It would be harder for me to do the same with the camera watching.
The camera also adds some audit-ability. You can go back to the video at any time whereas once I've taken the paper-based test, you can't go back.
Additionally, those proctors are volunteer CISSP holders that proctor in order to get CLE's. The likelihood of collusion between an employee at the test taking center vs the proctors would likely not be all that dissimilar.
I don't know why people even bother with that garbage; these exams really aren't that difficult. If you hate studying and/or have problems with learning new things, you're in the wrong field.
