Need Advice on when to take CCNA exam

I am currently in Georgia attending a military course, which includes an abbreviated (30 days) Cisco Academy as well as some Security +, MCSE, and Exchange classes. Because I go to school during the week and the testing center here is only open M-F I was originally scheduled to take my CCNA on Columbus Day weekend, but due to Delta deciding to attempt to fleece me, my scheduled 4 day vacation has been postponed, so I am available to take my exam on Labor Day weekend, since the center will be open on Friday.

Before coming here, I was studying extensively for my CISSP, but that took a back seat once we started Cisco, so for the past 3 weeks, I have been working 8 hours a day with Routers/switches, as well as studying 2 or so hours per night. I am not new to the World of Cisco, but I have never used any protocol besides EIGRP and have never used WAN protocols.

Would you think it's a good idea to push my test up around 35 days in order to allow myself a chance to work on other certifications or should I stick with my original plan? I have only taken Comptia exams up to this point, and have decided to stick to the 1 test format as it is cheaper....

I am open to suggestions and/or critisims as I attempt to figure out how to proceed due to this unfortunate change in plans...

    You need to extensively cover all off the material under CCNA, so RipV1,RipV2,OSPF,PPP, basically all the topics! Anything is possible in any given time limit if you prepare properly:)
