    Default Just wondering

    Has anyone completed the CCDP before the CCDA, if so did it make the CCDA easier or the CCDP harder? I have a couple people at work that are telling me I should go for the DP then the DA will be a piece of cake.

    Opinions?

    Thought you needed to have a CCDA or CCIE to attempt the CCDP....or am I mistaken?

    AFAIK you can pass the test for CCDP but you wont get the certification until the CCDA is also passed.

    I know you need the CCDA to get the CCDP cert, I was wondering if the information covered in the CCDP was enough so that if you studied for the DP could you take the DA with no problems

    This, to be certified as a CCDP.

    Also, from what I've covered of both courses, the DA seems to be more rugurgitating marketing stuff rather than whizz bang newfangled tech.

    That's what i've heard about the CCDA as well. However, the CCDE seems to be much better regarded.

    So... skip DA and DP, go straight for DE? XD haha, i don't know
    Studying: vmware, CompTIA Linux+, Storage+ or EMCISA
    Future: CCNP, CCIE

    You've done the CCENT. Would you try going straight for the CCIE?

    Hey, it's up to you.
