Any suggestions?..I have a lab and experience. Any good material. I hear its a lot of theory.

    Admittedly, I'm curious, as I'm sure others would be. . . why the rush? This will help posters determine how to advise you.

    kenny,

    there's loads of theory in this exam. when you say lab experience do you mean network design or techy stuff?

    I'm currently studying from

    CCDA Official Exam Certification Guide (Exam 640-863) (Hardcover) - out now

    Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (DESGN) (Authorized CCDA Self-Study Guide) (Exam 640-863), 2nd Edition comes out on 17th October 2007 which I may or may not get depending on how my prep is going!

    The 2 books I mentioned are the main resources but the exam pre req's are:

    "CCNA level knowledge and BCMSN level knowledge is needed to prepare for the CCDA certification exam. "

    ........so the BCMSN books from Cisco Press are also probably a good idea to glance over.

    kenny504,

    Given the time constraint, the "Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (DESGN) v2.0" course through a Cisco Learning Partner. Unfortunately, due to the unknown factors of your background and learning rate of new material, it may not be enough to pass the 640-863 DESGN exam.

    Do you have your CCNA certificate?

    Boy is she in for a rude awakening! :)
    I usually hang out on 224.0.0.10 (FF02::A) and 224.0.0.5 (FF02::5) when I'm in a non-proprietary mood.
