I normally try to study for an exam in an area that I have experience and am interested in, but this recertification has slipped up on me, and I need to take something that isn't so difficult it will take months and months of study. What professional exams do you think are the easiest now? Thanks in advance.
I'd say any exam that deals with things you work with on a daily basis. Per definition there are no easy Professional level exams, but of course it depends on your level of expertise. That said, many people seem to take the CCNP TSHOOT (300-135) exam to recertify. If you work with routing and switching, there's a good chance you can solve the issues you will be presented with in that exam.
