  17. Hey everyone,

    The new format in which cisco is releasing its old and NEW training materials is a .pdc file. This locklizard file does not allow to print it to a pdf creator, nor more than twice and it will ALWAYS carry a watermark with the account´s name that printed it.

    The SG for Tshoot, SWITCH and ROUTE were made without these hassles, and even in color !!!

    If someone can share here how to unlock or print a .pdc file to .pdf, I know people that can contribute with many of the new materials from the training classes, here, at this fine blog ( I loveeeeee it, it is getting me certified =)

    I´ll be on the lookout for your answers

  18. Hi Careercert, Could you please suggest me one best Simulator where I can work mostly on Cisco Switches like 6500,4000,4500,3750 etc…Thank you.

    1. There are only two network simulators which are good – GNS3 and Packet Tracer.
      You can practice limited switch commands on Packet Tracer. GNS3 is best for routers.


  19. hai
    Nice site man……….
    Do you have SWITCH, ROUTE, TSHOOT video tutorial. plz send link to my E-mail address. im waiting for ur reply.

  20. Hi CareerCert,

  22. Dear Careercert,

    I am verymuch grateful to you people for helping us. Today I passed the route exam with 955 marks. All the information shared in the site are 100% true and it helped a lot to prepare the exam without any fear.

    Thanks everyone and I wish all the best for those who are going to take the exam soon.

    1. Hai dude congrats! I am planning for CCNP Route 642-902 exam on next week.. can you plz help me by giving latest p4sure.

  23. Hi All,

    1. Hi If u want to make carrer in network security then go for CCNA Security, CCNP Security & then expert level. If u want to make carrer in other networking field then go for CCNP. Both r good. Now its upto u decide ur carrer and go for it.

  24. Can some 1 here please share their exam experience… may be route or switch… and Careercert please tell me which dumps to use for these exams… i need to give the exams in november ????

  25. Hi CareerCert,

    can you please mail me the winRAR password for ccnp route certkit so that i can use the study material.


  26. dont rely on 642-813 of pass4sure for now. The contents are totally different that the new switching exam. I failed on Sept 13, 2010

  27. i have a doubt regarding the exam fees of CCNP papers. is it 200 $ all i need to pay. or i need to pay more for study materials and exam registration??

  28. Hello errbody~!~!~!~! This is an all call… Has anyone passed or failed the 642-813 'Switch' exam while using Pass4sure or TestInside as a study source???
    I know you get a million and one bad engrish requests asking the same stuff over and over again. I read an earlier post from you stating to not totally rely on dumps for CCNPv6. Do you think the old BCMSN CBT nuggets and the new P4S 642-813 might be enough? I ask this since we don't have anyone on here confirming the validity of P4S or TI.

  29. @ Razin,

    I didn't understand. Did you download from both 4shared and rapidshare ?
    In fact both links are mirrors of each other.


  30. To Career Cert. Thankyou very much for your work. I really appreciate.

    I burned two Tow parts of Career Cert Kit but both look me same. So, can you explain me.

    Thanking in anticipation

  31. Hi Guys,

    I have just downloaded the CCNP Cert Kit & it is working fine. The password is also working great.
    It is a really good tool to learn for CCNP. It is great opportunity to clear the concepts.

    The password is : “”

    Be careful type as shown with the periods & (without quotes)nothing is capital.

  32. I have been lurking on this page for a bit, and see tons of people asking if the P4S 642-813 is sufficient enough to pass the new exam. Still no replies….
    Can somebody help us out and give us the heads up? I spent a ton of time trying to find this answer with no success.

  33. Please can you let me know what materials you used for the switch exam. I'm planning to take it next month. Thanks.

  34. I have done the switching exam now going to prepare for Route – link to cbtnuggets would be more than welcome…thx

  35. the new cbt nuggets for CCNP ROUTE 642-902 IS released plz if anyone has the link share it with us or if u have torrent

  36. Hi,
    I already done my 642-892 composite exam, so when I can do my Tshoot exam,,is it any latest dumps available

  37. Hi Careercert,

    My CCNA is getting expired in OCTOBER 2010,can i give the exam after october or not??


    1. Hi Before your CCNA validation gets over you have to give atleast 1 CCNP paper otherwise if not then you have to again give CCNA paper in order to be eligible for CCNP Certification.

    1. Hi you will get everything from Cisco website “”

  38. All right guys ! It is decided.

  42. If you pass TSHOOT and ARCH, you will get two certificates. i.e. CCNP and CCDP.

  53. Has anybody used the new p4s ccnp v6 test engines? I know it was pointed out the "buy now" tab was'nt showing. According to p4s email, you can still buy it, but says "NOTE: No Guarantee, No Refund for this exam, but you can enjoy our EXCHANGE policy if you fail." underneath the details of the cert.
    Can somebody please help? Trying to figure out if I should buy or not. Thanks in advance.

  57. I am waiting for Pass4sure TSHOOT 2nd version and can anybody tell me how much time it will

  58. hello careercert,
    i need any good presentation slides for CCNP V6

  59. hello the TSHOOT P4S is now available- any idea when we will have the cracked version available? thanks

  60. @ Kumba, I need the extracted Videos. Could u pls upload it to me? I've exausted all techniques I know to extract the Videos, but to no avail. I used the correct password, but I kept on receivind messages that I should incert certain CD. Pls be kind enough to upload it for me and give me the link, or forward it bit by bit to my inbox: [email protected]. I know It'd take some time, but pls sacrifice. Thanks.

  61. Dear CareerCert, explain please your doubt about Testking reliability..I mean, I took it to help my CCNA, is it really so unreliable ? ;-(
    Many thanks to WHAT you do for helping us for passing Cisco's exams.

  62. No, i will do group buy for P4S or Ti. Tk is not reliable.
    But p4s or ti aren't available yet.


  63. Guys INE Recently has updated the CCNP Video on Demand Series. Any body could you please that one also.. The updated one

  64. Hello Careercert,

    Would you please kindly confirm what is the Passmark for CCNP Switch 642-813 exam please. I am not really sure if it is 70 or 80 %. Kindly let us know the details.


  65. I have downloaded the CCNP v6 videos and on extracting using rar,it is asking for the encryption password.Any one with the password please help.


  66. @ above,

    If you pass BSCI, BCMSN, ISCW and ONT on or before July 31, 2010, you will become CCNP certified. If you don't complete your certification by then, the BSCI, BCMSN and COMP exams can still be used towards certification, but the ISCW and ONT exams cannot. You would then need to pass TSHOOT to complete your certification.


  67. pls if i dont complete my ccnp v5 certification exams before it expires in , can i continue with v6 exams

  68. I think it would be better to use cisco press book … I am also reading it.
    Guy's things are changing…while reading I am getting clear picture what cisco is now expecting from ciscoholics all about PPDIOO:Prepare – Plan – Designe – Implement – Operate – Optimize.
    Rather I must say CISCO is taking project management methodology into cisco certs officially. Merging TECH + BUSINESS MANAGEMENT.
    So better to start thinking like PM's

  69. i just read the 642-902 book by wendell odom.i suggest you to use the student guide 1,2,3 or the old bsci curriculum.

  70. Dear CareerCert.

    Waiting is just dying, when we will have ROUTE dumps so as to extract exact idea about how this exam has been developed.
    it is getting on nerves now 🙁

    Look forward for you valuable help

  71. I talked with p4s support team and they have no idea about the release date of ccnp v6 dumps.
    Yeah, i'll do group buys as soon as its available.


  72. Hi Careercert,
    First of all, thanks for all your help.
    Just one question: When we will be able to download from here P4S and Test Inside for Route, Switch and Tshoot exams for CCNPv6?
    Are you going to create "buy groups" like TI for BSCI and BCMSN for example? This would be appreciated.

    Best Regards.

  73. Guys, the dumps for ccnp v6 are not yet released.
    Pass4sure and testinside are showing these exam dumps but there is not any "Buy Now" link.
    They are still working on these exams.


  74. Hi, ANY dumps for 642-813 new CCNP SWITCH exam, Is there any Group buy for 642-813.
    Kindly comment

  75. have any body written ccnp route exam.if yes which dumps you have referred.please send the link to [email protected] from where we can download dumps for free.please send .it's urgent bcoz i am going to write exam next week

  76. @ Ben,

    Yes, any 642 exam will renew your CCNP certification for 3 years.

    But you must give the exam before the expiration date of your CCNP .


  77. Dear Career Cert
    I have a small doubt. My CCNP is getting expired in April. If i pass ONT only will i get recertified for the next 3 years.

  78. I think there was some confusion.

    CCNA knowledge is not required for route, switch and Tshoot COURSES but CCNA itself is a prerequisites for CCNP v6 CERTIFICATION.


  79. That's from the previous link:

    Valid CCNA certification or any CCIE Certification can act as a pre-requisite.

  80. hi careercert hope u r doing well

    I jst wana know tht "Is ccnp v6 is less complex then ccnp v5 or its not so". plz comment
