Exam Description‍

The Composite exam (642-892) is the quickest way for currently certified CCNP®, CCIP® and CCDP® to obtain recertification. The exam tests skills and knowledge pertaining to the Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (BSCI) and Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks (BCMSN) courses. Composite may be taken to recertify CCNP, CCIP and CCDP certifications; it may also be taken in place of the BSCI and BCMSN exams required for CCNP, CCIP and CCDP certifications. Candidates must successfully pass both routing and switching subsections of the Composite exam to successfully pass the exam.

  15. Hello
    I just passed ccnp composite this week.
    Do not count on P4S (7.12) composite to take it. Only 50% q were from it. LEARN througly
    Just 1-2 q from ipv6 and 1-2 from BGP.

    Composite is not an easy exam and I'm not advising anybody to take it. It's better to take BCSI BCMSN separetly.

    Good luck to everybody!!!

  16. As far as i know there is one hotspot that is different in composite p4s. i.e. Q4 of 399, and it is very clear. Do rest of labs and hotspots from ciscosims.
    You need to use your common sense.

  17. hi

    i have read the hotspots and labs from ciscosims and dumps.. hotspots are different on ciscosoms and dumps while the labs are same.. in dumps hotspots are not clear .. wat should i do.. plzz reply soon i have my xam..


  18. @zzoorroo

    i have download 6.99 version and i wanna ask tht how many labs will come in xam and all xams will be from ciscosims.. means are they enough and what bout hot spots .. dre are only 2 or 3 hot spots in switching part only … are they enough 4 me …

  19. @zzoorroo…
    have u recently taken the exam. As i will be sitting for composite in a week. and i am revising the 6.99 and labs sims. is that good enough? is there more i can do?
    thanks in advance for any tips.
    P.S. stilling looking for v7.12 dumps for P4S 642.892.

  22. Hi,
    I passed my Composite(642-892) yesterday (14th Oct,09) with a score of 964.

    There were 46 questions and 5 simulations with a time limit of 150 mins (2 and half hours) and a passing score of 790.

    P4S v6.99 is still helpful. There are a very few changes in the exam and that too in the number of options (i.e instead of 4 options there might be 6 options out of which you have to select 2 or 4 as directed).

    P4S v7.12 is the newest.
