Hi,
My CCNA is expiring on Sep 13. I wanted to take at least one of the
CCNP exams before my CCNA expires so that I dont have to retake CCNA.
Can anyone tell me which of the four exams in CCNP requires the least
amount of time? Thanks



Re: easiest of CCNP Exams


Man it depends on you. You can take BCMSN, BCRAN or BSCI.
Personally, I would go with BCRAN as first.
Whatever you do, don't go with CIT as your first. It combines the other 3
exams.

I'd certainly agree with leaving CIT til last.  BSCI is too large to do
quickly so I'd say BCMSN or BCRAN are the main candidates.

BCRAN. Thanks again.

I suggest you to start with BCRAN. I have passed this recently and it was
really easy, now I'm preparing for BCMSN and it has a lot of knowledge and
terminology included. In my opinion it's two or even three times larger than
BCRAN, just look at size of books for each of the exams.

Re: easiest of CCNP Exams


I personally have been doing the tests in the order presented by Cisco
--- BSCI -> BCMSN -> BCRAN -> CIT.

I feel like the BSCI definitely gave me the best starting point as it
provides some basis for the other topics.  The BCRAN & BCMSN seemed
pretty interchangeable to me, so far as which one to take first.  Most
people probably have more experience with one over the other (for me it
was the switching), so it might be a bit of a relief to take that one
after the huge BSCI effort.

Good luck!
