Just passed the CCDA, any suggestions for the ARCH exam

Mon Jul 30, 2012 12:55 pm

I just passed the CCDA this afternoon, which wasn't too bad. For studying I used the book (Official Cert Guide) as a guide, but honestly I've found that just using the Cisco web site (white papers and technical guides) is a better resource than most of the books, not to mention are free. I also used Boson ExSims over the last week just to reinforce the materials.

At any rate, before I go out and by anything for the ARCH exam, is the Official Cert guide worth it? How are the INE CCDP videos? For those that took the ARCH test, what did you guys use to study? Thanks!

Congrats dude!
:cheers:

For both I used the OCG and a few of the design docs to solidify topics i was weak on. The Boson ExamSim was not out for the ARCH test when I took it but I would recommend it if they have updated it. The ARCH is pretty tricky since you have to get into a Cisco mindset. But the OCG should be enough to get you through it.

Enjoy, its a fun exam to study.
