CCIP to CCNP Service Provider Migration Tool , aka 3 for 1 deal expires on July 24th 2015, that is soon. This means if anyone thinking about CCNP SP should do it soon, by July 24th.
The Deal is that old CCIP cert or any old exams QOS, BSCI, MPLS, BGP, ROUTE can be used to substitute new exam. see tool. Migrating is easy. Costs and time are save big time! Using one of old exams means 1 less exam to take (and pass).
Plus, you save on prerequisite. Taking 1 of above exams will count as prerequisite, so you save another 2 exams. Otherwise, CCNP Service Provider Prerequisite is CCNA SP which is 2 exams (2 exams cert is a waste of moeny and rip off by cisco).
After July 24th, you will have to take all 4 exams out of CCNP SP Plus CCNA SP (2 exams).
Another thing is ROUTE exam expires Jan 29th and new ROUTE exam does not count for the migration tool.
