Sounds like a wise decision, Kohr-ah.
I'm working on my CCDP as well. The CCDA was cake and bored me at times with how high-level it was but the CCDP material is pretty awesome and in-depth without getting too far into the weeds on how to configure the concepts.
I would recommend the following for the CCDP:
-INE ARCH Videos (Don't rely on this alone though!)
Do *not* go for the CCDP or CCDA Simplified books. They're written by a different author than the CCNP Simplified series and they lack a lot of detail. I was really disappointed after I took the CCDA test and barely squeaked by. If I wasn't studying data center concepts on my own, I would have failed horribly. It was probably the closest I've ever gotten to failing an exam in the last couple of years.
