I have been studying for the 642-812 (BCMSN), however, my CCNA cert has expired just yesterday. Two questions have arised from this situation:
1) Can I take the BCMSN prior to recertifying for the CCNA?
2) If so, will the BCMSN just lay dormant until I retake the CCNA?
You can take the BCMSN exam and all other ones for the CCNP track, but you will not get the CCNP certification until you pass the CCNA exam again. So it is possible to get your CCNA and CCNP at the same time.
You can post your question on the below link.
Hope this helps.
Best Of Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
