Hot off the press…the new CCNP Routing & Switching exam has been announced. Looks like current CCNP candidates will have until January 30th, 2015 to complete all threee of their current exams. Which if you ask me should be plenty of time, especially if you have one or two exams left. However if you are only just thinking about starting to study for the CCNP R&S it might be a good idea to just wait until the new exam is released.
On the bright side it looks like most of the topics will be remaining the same across the board. So all current CCNP R&S study materials will still be relevant. It kinda disappoints me that Frame Relay is still on the exam. I was really hoping they would have replaced in with DMVPN/MPLS topics. Especially now since DMVPN is a large topic in the CCIE R&S track. To each their own…even RIP managed to make the cut over to the new CCNP Exam.
