I plan to take 642-971 DCNID (Designing Cisco Data Center Network Infrastructure). Can anyone recommend study materials? I was not able to find any.

Thanks a lot

I was looking for this as well. I couldn't really find any. There were 2 courses on the PEC if you have access. The courses were fairly good, but really short (and incorrect) with some of the really advanced services.

I know this is tough, but I have found if you have an ACE, see if you can sneak in a test lab context. That is what I did.

Thanks for the info. I have access to PEC, but have not used it much.

Did you used ACE to practice for the exam? To be honest, I've never used ACE or Nexus products.

I have not taken the exam nor have I really planned on it. I have acess to 4 physical boxes which really helped and I ahve worked on CSSes for quite some time. I am migrating applications from the CSS to the ACE, but I hadn't worked on the ACEs before.

Now that I have done a few migrations and added features such as compression, Flash Forwarding and delta (I still haven't gotten to the more advanced features), I feel very comfortable. Maybe I will take a look at the exams.
