Confusion: JNCIA-ER + JNCIA-EX vs JNCIA-Junos

I'm just curious if there's any real difference between doing:

Enterprise routing certification track
Enterprise switching certification track

compared to

Enterprise routing and switching certification track.

The titles suggest the 2nd is just the first 2 combined, but I just want to verify since you don't end up with the same cert (like how cisco has 2 routes to get CCNA)

    I think you are best suited to do JNCIA-Junos and then pick up JNCIS-ENT .... The separate tracks are probably going to be obsolete next year...

    Something must be wrong.

    yeah; I just wanted to make sure (although I'm going to grab JNCIS-SEC after JNCIA-Junos)

    Yeah as hoogen said, the JNCIA-ER and EX are being phased out, so at some point in the near future, the difference will be one you can take and one you cant :D

    I think the exams expire at the end of this year. JNCIA-Junos will be the prerequisite for all the certs at that point. The way I see it there is no point in doing the ER or EX unless you already have it scheduled or something. Might as well just do the JNCIA-Junos.
