    What’s the recommended path to obtain the CCNP? The common answers in the past were any order so long as CIT (troubleshooting) was last.

    Since the exams have changed (there is no specific trouble-shooting exam) is there a recommended path; and why?

    I’ve got a feeling this has been asked before, but I didn’t see any answers relevant to the new exams.

    I'd do BSCI first, then BCMSN. After that, I'm torn... most people go ISCW then ONT, but the ONT book content looks *very* similar to stuff on the BCMSN...

    Thanks BM...

    So here's the thing, I'm thinking of doing ONT next. My reasoning is I've found a study group that I can work with. Their path was BCMSN; BSCI; ONT & ISCW. I didn't follow that path (I did BSCI first), but I'm thinking I can do the next 2 with them. I'll wrap up the BCMSN on my own.

    So the question is (take experience out of the equation) how doable is this approach?
    *I have about the same experience across the board with these subjects

    Thoughts?

    Mm.... ultimately, the decision is yours... but I'm not sure I'd do ONT without doing BCMSN first.

    That said, you're pretty smart... probably wouldn't affect you either way.
