The CCNP Enterprise consists of two difficult exams:
Exam 1: 350-401 ENCOR (Common Exam) – Exam Outline
The first exam is 350-401 ENCOR and requires you to go fairly in depth into a broad base of subjects such as automation, security and infrastructure. This is the exam you should study for and pass first and you should not worry that you are locked into Cisco, because these concepts are transferable to adjacent technologies.
Exam 2: 300-410 ENARSI (Concentration Exam) – Exam Outline
The second exam is one of six available “concentration” exams, 300-410 ENARSI and covers advanced routing and switching.
Optionally, you can concentrate on 5 other areas as well if you find that you do not need 300-410 ENARSI.
