Having CCNA, CCNP, and CCDP; I took 5 exams to get CCSP

I don't think there is an alternative http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/le2/le37/le54/learning_certification_type_home.html

Even if there is a composite, I prefer to take the exam one at a time. Maybe because of my sad experience with Cisco Composite Exam for CCNP 7 years ago and Microsoft 4-in-1 for MCSE upgrade

Hi Dandy ,

Thanks very much , and is it possible to become a ccsp without going through ccna?

Sorry I'm just getting started with cisco certifications .

You can take the 5 CCSP exam without having a CCNA but you will not be a CCSP (or you won't get your CCSP certificate) until you take and pass CCNA.

i planned to pursue the CCSP certification but due to luck of study guides i decided to go for the CCNP, all the same i will get the CCSP after the NP. hoping the study guide will be ready by that time. but to you studying with the old book i say best wishes to you all and believe you can make it
