    I am preparing to take the CCDA exam and wanted to see what study material worked the best for everyone who passed the CCDA?

    The best source would be the Official Cisco courseware for 640-863, but that requires taking an official Cisco course. Short of that I would start with:

    Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (DESGN) (Authorized CCDA Self-Study Guide) (Exam 640-863), 2nd Edition By Diane Teare.

    CCDA Official Exam Certification Guide (Exam 640-863) (Hardcover) By Anthony Bruno and Steve Jordan.


    Top-Down Network Design By Priscilla Oppenheimer should also be relevant although perhaps somewhat dated.

    Welcome to the forum!

    I completely agree on the above additions especially if you have not yet attempted any of the CCNP track, yet.
