Hi My CCNP expired.  Of course i am not going to retake 4 exams to recertify. I was wondering if there is a single composite to recertify.

I'm afraid you will need to take a 4 exams again to become re-certified. Our networking guy recently had a similar experience and this was the advice he was told.

if your let your certification expire you well even have to take the ccna and all the ccnp exams. the nex time this is going to happen to you. it is better to take a ccie writen exam.

No small test. You need to take them back again.

Yep; the CCIE written is the composite to recertify. Now that you let your CCNP certification expire;  you need to retake all 4 tests.

An alternative would be to pass the CCIE written, and then take and pass the CCIE lab;  since the CCIE has no pre-requisites,  you would then have a certification back.

Retaking the 4 tests is an easier feat, I would argue.
