What is ENARSI
, one of the "Specialist" level exam and certificate belonging to the CCNP Enterprise

Is ENARSI Important?
It is actually very important not just to accomplish the nice, highly wanted, Professional level badge "CCNP Enterprise
but also the content is very useful and the agenda won't waste your time and efforts.
The exam has around 72% of its agenda focusing on routing, and to be more precise, it is focusing on EIGRP, OSPF, and BGP only!
by only i mean no Static Route or IS-IS there, and of course no RIP.
So only 3 protocols to present over 70% of that exam agenda, so it is a deep dive in the routing field.
plus, for all these 3 protocols it produces a higher level of study compared to the agenda of the ENCOR exam with EIGRP, OSPF, and BGP.
ENARSI and other Specialist CCNP exams
if you were interested in "Routing", then that's it, only the ENARSI
should be your exam to focus on.
OR, perhaps go directly to the CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure
, is it a best practice?
NO, because the ENARSI
exam bridges the "Routing" knowledge gap between the ENCOR
and the CCIE EI
which both are related (the ENCOR
is the prerequisite of the CCIE EI
Enjoy and get Certified.
