Hi.I have already approved the first three test for the CCNP certification, but these are of versions out of circulation:Routing test (640-503)Approved 06-Mar-2002Switching test (640-604) Approved 16-Aug-2002Remote access (640-605) Approved 22-Jan-2003Now, my CCNA certification is close to expiring (October 2 of 2004).If I do not present the CIT (642-831) test before this expiry date, apart from having to present again the examination CCNA, I have to present also, in case of to approve the CCNA, each of the test for the CCNP again?. Or would there continue being valid the three test previously approved for the CCNP certification and hereby only to present the CIT test? Thanks in advance,R.@.M.
You can find information on the CCNP here:http://www.cisco.com/en/US/learning/le3 ... .htmlThere is a link for CCNP Instant answers there as well. If you go there, you will find a posting as follows:Question Will I be able to mix and match exams for the CCNP certification? Answer Most of the retired CCNP exams that were offered are still valid towards the CCNP certification. Those candidates who have passed earlier versions of the CCNP exams (such as 640-605 or 640-505) are able to apply those exams towards the CCNP certification requirements.The retired Routing 640-503, Routing 640-603, BSCI 640-900 and BSCI 640-901 exams will fulfill the same requirement for CCNP certification that the current BSCI 642-801 exam does. In addition, the retired Switching 640-504 and 640-604 exams will fulfill the same requirement for CCNP certification as the current BCMSN 642-811. The retired Remote Access 640-505 and 640-605 exams will also fulfill the same requirement for CCNP certification as the current BCRAN 642-821 exam. Lastly, the retired Support 640-506 and 640-606 exams will fulfill the same requirement for CCNP certification as the current CIT 642-831 exam.The retired Foundation 640-509 and Foundations 640-841 exams also remain valid towards the CCNP certification path. These exams will fulfill the same requirement as the current BSCI 642-801, BCMSN 642-811 and BCRAN 642-821 exams.The following exams are no longer valid towards the CCNP Certification:ACRC 640-201ACRC 640-403CLSC 640-205CLSC 640-404CMTD 640-206CMTD 640-405CIT 640-204CIT 640-440Foundation 640-409 Good Luck!
