I completed CCNA semesters 1-4 in 2003/2004 whilst at Uni, however never sat the certification exam. Since then, I've been working with networks from other vendors, so I have built on my CCNA knowledge substantially since then.
I'm now wanting to complete my CCNP and hopefully without having to sit the CCNA first (this will mean revision of the new version of the CCNA).
Cisco appear to have two pieces of conflicting information:
http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/netacad/course_catalog/CCNP.html States that CCNA certification is desireable, but not a prerequisite.
http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/le2/le37/le10/learning_certification_type_home.html states that CCNA is a prerequisite.
Is there some official documentation from Cisco that I can review that states all of the pre-requisites for the CCNP?
