I have looked through some previous posts and not getting a clear picture on the new CCNP cert track. I purchased the 642 series, 5th edition, library about 2-3 weeks ago and after going to the cert page see that a new series is coming out and the old track I have is set to expire 7/31/2010.
My question is, if I begin with the 642-901 and so on will I need to retake if I do not complete all 642 courses before July 31st? My fear is I will pass 3 of the 4 tests and the 4th will take longer and go into August or September. I do not want to have to take all the tests again, or will they be grandfather clause in effect?
