I have a current CCNA, and I passed the Switching Exam (640-604) back in 10/02 and Remote Access (640-605) back in 04/03. Both of these exams have been retired. Do I need to start all over again down the CCNP track? Or can I get some sort of credit for the two exams that I passed?
Unfortuneately, you will have to start over. Cisco gives you three years to complete the CCNP track from start to finish. If you do not complete all of the tests within that time frame, you will have to retake the ones that have expired.
"Placing expiration dates on exams ensures that candidates starting a multi-exam certification such as CCENT, CCNP, CCDP, CCVP, CCSP and CCIP, complete the program within a specified time-frame. By passing all of the required exams within the specified time period as noted above, candidates demonstrate that they are tested on current content. In situations where the period exceeds three years, candidates will need to re-take those exams that expire. "
Good luck with your studies and hope this helps.
