Cisco upgrade every exams periodically. the exam 642 - 902, which u have scheduled after  January 31, 2015 will change entirely and its code also. so they are warned you. please reschedule it before 31/1/2015 or cancel it. After this date its not valid .



Thanks Kazim.  What does dis mean - " cancel the exam and reschedule the replacement exam 300-101 (TShoot). " ? What is a replacement exam? On my understanding about Tshoot exam, it's better to take Route & Switch first. 

Do I need to accomplish 3 exams for CCNP before January 31, 2015? 






yes it means Tshoot exam(with new code), it depends on you which u like to take first tshoot or route.

Do I need to accomplish 3 exams for CCNP before January 31, 2015?

you should ask this question to pearsonvue, they will answer you within 5 working days.

The email you have received reply it as soon as possible.
