CCNA recertify deadline

I am confused with an information I got from my colleague who is CCNA like me.

My CCNA certificate is going to expire in the second week in June 2009.

And now I am studying 642-901 (BSCI) as a way to recertify but my colleague told me about 'some information on the internet' that if I like to recertify my CCNA with BSCI exam i would have to take the exam ONE MONTH earlier before the expiration date (which is these days!?).

Is this true? Do I have a "one month earlier" deadline about professional Cisco exams in order to recertify my CCNA? Has anyone heard about this before?

I've searched Cisco web site and I've never read such information.

Please share your opinions about my problem.

Best regards,

Hi R

do not worry but you must take your exam before the last day in the expiration date

and this will re certify your CCNA

"one month earlier" deadline is all bull shit.Go for the Routing exam before the last date of the CCNA expiration and if you clear it ,your CCNA certification will become valid till june 2012.
