CCNP Data Center novas provas

Bom pessoal, hoje pela manhã a Cisco informou que as provas do CCPN-DC serão renovadas passando da versão 5.0 para a 6.0, a boa noticia é que ao invés de 6 provas, agora serão 5 provas para conseguir o titulo de CCNP Data Center:

Os exames da versão 5.0 só poderão ser marcados até 3 de julho de 2017, então se você está no meio dos estudos para alguma das provas, é melhor correr.

Galera, acho que talvez o valor gasto nas tracks CCNA DC e CCNP DC compense mais ir direto para o CCIE DC (2 provas).

  1. Não entendi, na sua opinião, fazer essas certificações não valeria pelo custo, é isso?

    1. Exatamente, cara o ccna dc são 2 provas ($600 + $1250 do CCNP completo =1800k) já a prova do CCIE DC wr = $400 e a prática = $1600 =2000k se não me engano, obvio que não tem comparação em nível de dificuldade, mas é uma boa questão pra se pensar :)
