Possible path the CCNP Security?
I currently have a CCNP Routing & Switching and would like to pursue a CCNP in Security. I do have some experience with firewalls and security at my current position.
I was in the middle of studying for CCNA Security. Since the new exam changes coming up I don't see any reason to do the CCNA Security since it won't really existing anymore. Looks like with the new exams you can jump straight to CCNP Security.
So one option was to study now on old CCNP security content and then when the books and new training material come out, I can fill in the gaps. Then take the New core exam and one more exam.
But another options I was thinking about was to studying now for one of the four current CCNP Security exams and take it before the deadline skipping the CCNA security exam.
According to the migration tool I would then just have to take the new core exam and then I am done.
So does my last option seem viable? I'm am also curious if taking one of the old ccnp security exams would renew my CCNP r&s even though I skipped ccna sec.
