couple of weeks ago I have passed BSCI on first go. Now got little confused of CCNP certification path. I am thinking of preparing for 642-813 SWITCH exam. Could anyone please tell me do I still need to do BCMSN? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
you have few options:
you can take BCMSN before July 31 or the new SWITCH exam
in addition you'll need wither both ISCW and ONT or as you plan, the new TSHOOT exam
all the exams - on any track you choose, must be completed within 3yr window from the BSCI date
you can check all the options here
Since you already passed your BSCI you need to take 642-813 (switch) and then 642-832 (tshoot) or instead of tshoot take 642-825 and 642-845 before July 31, 2010.
