  1. i think changes made by cisco are good for students. and exams with new syllabus are tough to clear too and if its about Tshoot, its just impossible to clear with dumps. Cisco is forcing students to study.. hehe

  2. Hi guys and Careercert, could any1 provide a link to download Cisco Networking Academy programe v6.0, couldn't find it((
    Thanks in advance!

  3. @ soori,

    I agree with you. If you haven't started the CCNP study yet, then it'd be good for you to wait for new exams.

    However if somebody already have taken the one or two old tests then he should NOT wait for new exams.

    ..

  4. Hi All,
    With above posted difference i think new CCNP trach is going to be tough to crack the exam.If u r going to take CCNP exam which one would u like to take old one or new one??what important topics covered in new one and what topics left from old one? r we going to learn new things from new curriculum or r we goinHey with the above difference i think new CCNP covers more curriculum than old one and its going tog to miss some important topics in old one.Couple of weeks ago i passed my CCNA exam and am confused to go ahead (old or new track?).I think i should wait for couple of months for New CCNP track to release and in meantime i should go for MCSE because i have no knowledge in windows side.What u guys think reply me.

    Thanks,
    soori
