How did you study for CCNP Secure?

I usually do a self study - get a book from Amazon, maybe buy a CBT for it and do lots of labs. The problem is that the official guide for this exam on Amazon has very bad reviews due to the multitude of technical and grammatical errors. After reading all the reviews there, I decided to skip buying this book. This leaves me with a void for the reading material. I am thinking of pulling all the technical documents according to the exam blueprint but I am not sure if that would be enough.

How did you study? Did you use the official guide or something else?

    Hi m8,

    to complement study books I usually keep eyes open for relevant articles, white-papers and other learning material directly from Cisco.com. A lot of useful information you can assimilate, just by searching their portal and especially for security-related exams' topics. You can always make an optional learning-network account there to access even more info on your desired exam.

    Regards and good luck on your studies and examsicon_wink.gif

    I wondered the same thing, in a previous post...
