Does CCNP Study/Test Order Matter?

Unanswered Question
Sep 22nd, 2010

I was enrolled in a CCNP course that was 6 months long. The first 3 months I was supposed to take: 1) Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (642-901 BSCI) and 2) Implementing Cisco IP Routing (642-902 ROUTE).

There were not enough students enrolled for the University to do the course. So instead they have put me in: 1) Implement Cisco IP Switched Networks (642-813 SWITCH) and 2) Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks (642-832 TSHOOT).

I've been a network admin for 3 years now and a medium to large enterprise company, dealing mostly with firewalls, vpns, basic routing/switching, etc. I'm fairly comfortable with routing, but I'm sure I don't know the details of it that i would learn  in the ROUTE and BSCI courses.

So, my question is, does it matter if I take the SWITCH and TSHOOT course BEFORE the BSCI and ROUTE courses? Will there be a knowledge gap by skipping the ROUTE/BSCI courses and going straight to the SWITCH and TSHOOT courses?

Any input appreciated. Thanks.

I have this problem too.
