hey guys
if I have the older switch and route the 642-813 and 642-902 instead of the newer ones, that are coming in Jan 2015
can I still use them for CCNP? or do I have to take the new SWITCH ROUTE?

    If you have written the old ROUTE and SWITCH exams and write the new TSHOOT it will count towards CCNP. Cisco generally allow mix and match exams.

    You can mix and match, but be aware that the new TSHOOT (300-135) will cover material from both the new ROUTE (300-101) and SWITCH (300-115).
    Security: CCNA [ ]
    Virtualization: VCA-DCV [ ]
