So as the title tells you, on friday the 15th 2008 i will sit for my very first cisco exam.
For others on this similar track, i will have been studing for the exam 50 days as of tomorrow. With a few months shy of 8 years of experience.
My primary preperation methods has been the two books provided by cisco press covering the CCDA.
Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (DESGN) (Authorized CCDA Self-Study Guide) (Exam 640-863), 2nd Edition
CCDA Official Exam Certification Guide (Exam 640-863), 3rd Edition
Also utilizing the ExamSim by Boson which is packaged with the Exam Certification guide. My only complaint is the number of inccorect answers on the examsim. I provided feedback for each of them, but this really shows the value of understanding the answer and not just knowing which one to select.
Much appreciation to the many people who have already posted about their experiences with the CCDA. Im rather nervous as this is my first ever cisco exam.
