Well, after a lot of umming and ahhing, I finally decided to put my head down for two weeks and got my CCNP SWITCH and CCNP TSHOOT done. That on top of my already passed CCNP ROUTE has achieved me a CCNP Routing and Switching from Cisco.
If you're contemplating going for your CCNP, or are in the process of it, I can only encourage you to give it a shot. It's a good certification and by passing the exams you are demonstrating that you have a solid understanding of routing and switching, and not just as it relates to Cisco.
The only real advice I can offer you is to ensure you really understand the concepts Cisco has outlined in the exam blueprints. That means, STP, OSPF, HSRP and the rest. Know how they work and you won't have a problem.
At the end of it all, you'll know quite a bit more and Cisco will give you one of these little logos.
