January 31, 2020 update: No, you’re not crazy. Cisco changed the exam number from 300-401 to 350-401.
If you’ve been studying for your CCNP R&S certification or are looking to recertify, you’ve probably considered whether to sit the existing CCNP ROUTE, SWITCH, or TSHOOT exams, or just wait until the CCNP ENCOR exam comes out in February 2020.
The good news is that the blueprint for the ENCOR exam is mostly the same as the CCNP R&S track. In fact, the fundamentals are almost 100% identical. That means that you can prepare for the CCNP ENCOR exam by using existing training materials. For your convenience, I’ve put together the following list of my Pluralsight courses that cover both the CCNP ENCOR exam and the existing CCNP ROUTE, SWITCH, and TSHOOT exams. By watching and following along with the hands-on demos in these courses, you can’t go wrong.
