    Default CCDA Exam scheduled for Tuesday at Noon (passed) 988/1000

    I didn't do so bad Wireless was tough, it was very under-represented in both of the available Cisco Press books.

    Onto ARCH

    Good luck, or should I say congrats because we all know you will pass it :P

    I could have sworn I already saw a post saying you took and passed it.

    I think that was in someone else's pass post saying that there was going to be a few of them passing all around the same time. No doubt

    Good Luck!

    Don't worry, we'll still read your posts if you only get a 988

    Are you studying for the ARCH exam also? There was an overlap between the old DESGN and ARCH material/topics -- just a different exam focus.

    Good Luck Paul! I think if there is any question you are unsure of you should purposely fail it in order to retry and continue the pass streak of 1000

    haha the streak died at three in a row. I missed one on the QoS exam

    Mike - I haven't formally started studying for the ARCH yet but once I finish the CCDA it will be my highest priority. I'm still passively studying for the BGP/MPLS composite. The way I've got it laid out now, my next three tests will net a certification each. DESIGN tomorrow = CCDA. ARCH = CCDP because I've already taken the CCNP composite. BGP/MPLS Composite = CCIP because I've already taken the QoS.

    I've noticed that once the CCNP has been completed one can get 4-5 Cisco certs in very quick order.

    Good luck and you will be glad when you get to the newer CCDP materials, I find them very interesting and I think very useful for normal network administration/design. The CCDA books were like pulling teeth but the student guides have been quite the opposite!

    Good thing you didn't do any worse. You almost lost Mike as a valued customer!

    Nice job. On to ARCH then, or back to BGP+MPLS?

    hehe I know what you mean. I used to do centrex switch programing and those blinking lights suck

    CCDP -> CCIP -> CCIE is the goal. Does anyone know about the CCDE?

    CCNA + CCNP is much more valuable to your resume and professional skillset. It also makes the other exams much easier. Without the CCNP the CCDA would have been a lot harder. The CCNP exposed me to 90% of the material on the CCDA. I got a job offer from a recruiter who found my resume on monster which is literally double what I was getting paid at my last job because I've got the CCNP on my resume.

    To follow up on that, did ONT and/or ISCW help with your design studies, or was it primarily just BSCI and BCMSN (the two required for DP)?

    A lot of the routing protocol labs from the BSCI and the general understanding of the technologies (GLBP, where L3 switching happens, where to use QoS, etc) were prevalent on the BCMSN. ISCW covered security, some wireless, etc. ONT really nailed QoS and some security/ip telephony. I think all four exams were beneficial. I couldn't tell why the BCMSN is a suggested prep for the DESIGN exam.
