    You took ARCH before the CCDA exam? icon_lol.gif

    Yes, the CCDA is all you'll need, and you will have to do it within three years of the first 642 exam you took (out of those three) because they're only good for three years.

    Valid CCNA and CCDA are prerequisites for the CCDP -- so you need those exams/certs.

    Exams are good for 3 years.

    If you haven't already taken a previous version of the DESGN exam, then the only options is 640-863 DESGN. You'd need to take and pass that within 3 years of taking the ARCH, BSCI, and BCMSN. If any of those exams will be "older" than 3 years, then you'd have to retake that exam.

    CCDP Requirements show you can use the 642-892 Composite exam in place of the BSCI and BCMSN exams.
