Passed ARCH, Now a CCDP

I passed my ARCH exam yesterday, and am now a CCDP (or will be soon. Waiting for official notification from Cisco). Took me 2 times to pass. I studied by reading the ARCH Foundation Learning guide. I also went over my ROUTE and SWITCH notes, since it's been 2.5 years since I took those exams.

I'm happy this is done. Next is a break, and then studying for my CCIE.

    How valuable was the information? I'm considering mixing the CCDP and a CCIE: Security (fairly far in the future) to head towards a Security Architect type role.

    The book has some good design guidelines, some of which I have never seen before (like scaling for STP, and design layouts for DCs). The main reaosn I went for the CCDP is because I already have a CCNP, and it is only 2 more exams (CCDA, and ARCH exams).
