    Default CCDA Passed

    Most. Irritating. Exam. Ever.

    I'm not sure why, but for me, this was one of the most difficult exams that I have tried to prepare for. I tend to enjoy the practical and lab portions, though, so maybe the 100% conceptual nature of the exam was what did it. Also, I think maybe they outsourced the question writing to people whose first language wasn't English. There were some extremely poorly worded questions and answers.

    Score: 985/1000

    Oh well. At least I passed. On to CCNP!!

    Congrats. I've heard nothing but negative things about the exam but I've heard that the ARCH exam is much better. Keep up the good work!

    What material did you use to prepare? I am thinking about heading down this path as well.

    CBT Nuggets has an updated course that is decent. It doesn't have enough detail. The Foundation Learning Guide is easier to read than the Official Certification Guide, but I didn't finish reading it.

    The Official Cert Guide has most of what you need. I went through it a couple of times. It also depends on how comfortable you are with voice, wireless, and security. The CCDA seems to pull from all of those areas at a pretty high level. It covers a much broader scope of material than the CCNA, but does so in much less detail. It's a lot of memorization of different "Cisco X Architectures" (Unified Comm, Enterprise, Campus, DC, ....) and what pieces fit where. Several questions on my test were unclear, outdated, or used awful grammar.
