I was certified in CCNA, CCNP, CCDA but they are all expired. Am I able to recertify or I need to take everything again?
If I need to take everything again, I am thinking doing CCIE R&S, CCIP, CCDP, can CCIE R&S written substitute any 642 exam? What's the least amount of exams that will get me CCIE, CCDP and CCIP?
You cannot recertify after a certification has expired. You will need to retake all related exams. A CCIE written will not substitute for a 642 exam except in recertification. It will recertify professional and associate level certifications. The following is a list of the minimum number of exams to achieve CCIE, CCDP, and CCIP.
640-801 - CCNA
642-892 - Composite
642-873 - ARCH
642-642 - QoS
642-691 - BGP+MPLS
350-001 - CCIE R&S Written
CCIE R&S Lab Exam
Hope this helps. If so, please rate the post.
