Hi Paul,

You are right on the money my friend :)

Candidates for CCSP will now need only four exams (three required, one elective) with the introduction of the new CCNA Security as a prerequisite, instead of the five exams required today (four required, one elective). ** Retired exams that have been passed may be used towards exam requirements for three years.
