    Default goin for CCDA first then CCNP straight after

    i have bought the books for ccnp BSCI 2 but ive decided to opt for the CCDA so once i have done CCNP i can take the extra exam to get CCDP. I have per ordered the designing for cisco networks book out on october 1st and the new cert guide for ccda out the same day so i know i have covered the areas well. Would i be over doin it if i got the todd lamme CCDA updated for 640 861? exam? gosh im obsessed lol

    I would definitely buy the last one... I think all three is overdoing it indeed, that money might be better spend on a future Cisco lab for your CCNP exams..

    Choosing between the first two is difficult, but if you are going for the third book, the Todd Lammle book is probably the best addition.

    I read a very good review about the new CCDA exam written by Andy Barkl but I can't remember which site it was... I thought it was www.mcpmag.com but can't find it there... anyone else?

    The reason I choose the certification guide is because I used their (now older) CCDA study guide myself, and I seriously think it is the best cert book I've ever bought... Also Anthony Bruno writes the most popular CCIE r&s books, and was the one that reviewed the new 1-day CCIE lab...

    just saw ur message. The administrator is right. The 3rd one definitely is a good one. That is what i am using now and there are quite some stuff there that aint in Todd Lammles'(ur 2nd option). Well i dont know if there is a newer version than what im using but i think its not well stuffed. As for the site u were talking about administrator, the site is www.tcpmag.com and not mcpmag.com. Cheers........
