If you got your CCNA cert in 2006 and passed BCMSN in May 2008, this means your CCNA cert has been renewed/extended for another 3 years.

Cisco will retire Firewall Specialist in November 17, 2008. However you can still sit for SNPA and SND, and if you passed this before November 17, 2008 you will get the Firewall Specialist cert. After November 17, 2008 the Firewall Specialist cert has no value :) but take note that passed exam results (SNPA and SND) is valid for 3 years

You can then sit for one "Required" exam (SNRS or SNAF or IPS) and one "Elective" exam (HIPS or CANAC or MARS or SNAA) for CCSP to get your CCSP cert.
