CCIP BGP and Composite (MPLS+BGP)

Post by Guest »


I passed the CCIP BGP exam last 10/26/2007...Can I take the composite (mpls+bgp) exam and gain CCIP certification? I know I could take MPLS instead, but I would like to take the composite instead this 2nd week of Feb.

Hi,You need to take only MPLS (642-611). Save the money for QoS (642-642), BSCI (642-901), and CCNA - if you have not complete it.Composite (642-892) is BSCI (642-901) and BCMSN (642-812) together, NOT BGP+MPLS together.Regards,Dandy

Thanks Dandy,I've already pass all modules except MPLS. I just heard that the MPLS+BGP exam is much simpler that the exam for MPLS alone.There is bundle (sorry I've called it composite) exam for MPLS+BGP.http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/l ... _home.html

Hi,I have not take any bundled exam recently, my last take was 7 years ago - COMPOSITE.  Which I can't remember what the exam like.Maybe because MPLS+BGP exam has less question per module (i.e. 100 questions total for both rather than 70 questions for each if you take them individually) and the scroring maybe combined so if you are good in BGP, it will help the overall score. But noone knows what the exam like until you sit for it.IMHO, if I already passed BGP, I rather take MPLS alone so that I can focus and also less number of question.Regards,Dandy

The MPLS exam isn't so terrible. I found the BSCI harder at the time!And though I've never attempted the composite, I always read that it's harder than the separate exams. Your mileage may vary...
