Going deep and wide with CCDA

I noticed whenever I passed a certification such as what I got 2 days ago (BCvRE), I am such in a good mood to go after the next one. Yes, I will admit I am a cert junkie. Yes, I did claim that I will be doing my CCIE R&S soon but for some reason I had a change of heart.

I remember Keith Barker from CBTNuggets was asked regarding getting certs or how you should go about learning IT. He said something that I always remember “Go deep and wide”. I think Jeremy Cioara mentioned the same thing. I decided before going really deep into CCIE R&S, I wanna go wider this time and do a ladder approach getting my number.

I have decided to take the design track, meaning I will be taking the Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA) test which will eventually lead to the Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP). CCDP requires 3 exam, Route, Switch and Arch. I already have the first tue from my CCNP R&S.

I have gone through CBTNugget videos last year by Anthony Sequeira. I honestly feel its not enough, brutally saying I would have preferred Keith or Jeremy doing them. So here we go, I plan to take the first of two exam in 4 months. I will be updating my blog site for things I will be learning….that’s if I get the chance.
