I am also interested in what path and tools to use toward the CCNP - I passed my CCNA last week and since there is no school offering these courses near me I have no idea about books or services available.

I recently completed all of the new ccnp exams.

I used the CBTNuggets training videos and the Cisco Press Self Study Exam Certification Guides.

I had to use some of the older CCNP curriculum books as the new ones were not published at the time ( ISCW and BSCI were not published until mid July ).

This isn't an issue anymore as the whole library is out.


I did them in the following order BSCI, BCMSN, ONT, ISCW.

as far as difficulty goes I'd say

BSCI was the hardest followed by ONT,BCMSN and ISCW. However I'd already completed CCSP so ISCW bound to be easier for me.

Hope this helps
