    Default Study material for CCDP.

    So I'm gonna try and shoot for the CCDP in the next few months. I was wondering what study material I could use.

    I've got the 642-874 book on order, and I've got the Top Down Network Design book on eBook in Kindle. I haven't been through the whole top-down network design book just chapters here and there as needed. Both other then two books what else could I use? Any recommended videos, or other books that are worth a look at?

    So ARCH and Top Down Network Design are both good for the CCDP. You could also mix in a few others as well:

    IPv6, Second Edition: Theory, Protocol, and Practice
    NX-OS and Cisco Nexus Switching: Next-Generation Data Center Architectures
    MPLS Fundamentals

    Also the CCDP videos from INE are good as well

    CCDP Course - 642-873 ARCH

    Happy Studying

    The ARCH 642-874 book is all I've bought for it, but whether that's enough or not I'm not sure yet.

    I'd also recommend the Cisco design zone where there are blueprint "pre-approved" designs called "Smart Business Architecture" from Cisco for SMB's etc (Design Zone for Smart Business Architecture - Cisco Systems) and full blown design guides for specific products. This wont cost you a penny!

    I've have to pick the IPv6 and Nexus book, since I've never played with a Nexus before. I've got an IPv6 Circuit or two at work to mess around with it

    The design zone is pretty cool I stumbled upon that while I was sudying for my CCDA. It's a nice resource a place I've got on the top of my bookmarks.

    Thanks for the input guys. My ARCH book should be getting here today, along with Network Security Architectures!
