Step 10: CCDP - Cisco Certified Design Professional

Just like the CCDA is meant to compliment the CCNA, the CCDP (Cisco Certified Design Professional) is designed to compliment the CCNP. This is a professional level certification concentrating on the design of a network using Cisco equipment. Like the CCNP, this certification requires four tests, but three of them are also used for the CCNP. Additionally, a current CCNA and CCDA certification is required. If you have already earned your CCNA, CCDA, and CCNP then all that is required is to pass the Cisco Internetwork Design Exam (CID 640-025).

To study for this exam, you can use the Sybex Cisco Internetwork Design Study Guide. If you prefer the Cisco Press books instead, then you can use their Cisco CID Exam Certification Guide.
