Ill probably get a faster answer on this vs asking cisco...

Ive got my CCNA and I believe it expires on may 7th (is it normal to expire on a sunday?  I dont think testing centers are open on sundays...  First off, where can I verify this on a cisco website.

I plan to take the 642-811 switching exam which is 1 of 4 of the exams for CCNP.  I obviously need to take it this week, I have been studying for a while now - my question is even if I took it today and failed it, it doenst look like I could do a retake until next monday - which would be 1 day after my ccna expires?  So my question is am I stuck with having to pass it on my first attempt or I will not have my ccna or a portion of my ccnp!?  Or if I fail the exam does it allow me another week of my expiration date?
Thanks
Ross

Yes.  You must pass on first attempt which will renew your CCNA.  If you fail you will need to retest for CCNA before pursuing your CCNP.

Good luck.
