The SDM is covered on the ICND1 and the CCNA exams. The prep books (Cisco Press and Todd Lammle's Study Guide) recommend downloading and becoming familiar with the SDM. They both say it is freely available from, however when I go there to download it it says there is no software available ("There are no files of this type."). Has this been changed to require a support contract?

No you do not need an account.

You can download SDM ver 2.3.2 for free. Read the instructions for downloading. I think you can put in your email address as a password and log on with guest.

The demo only uses 2.3.2 though.
