Great week of achievements for you.

Now since you dont have experience for the second part, you might want to consider e learning as an option.
You might want to check the following option available for you here at the Cisco Learning Network:

I wish you all the best in your CCNA Collaboration certification journey. You can do it!
I have also passed CICD 210-060. For the last 5 months I have been working day to day with Cisco voice. I found that was invaluable when it came to passing the exam.
I have now started studying for CIVND. Unfortunately, we have no video at work. So far, I have read the official certification guide, watched CBT Nuggets and started with INE Rack rentals (they have a CCIE Collaboration rack). I will not be paying for the official Cisco video course as it is too expensive when you are paying yourself.
I am also worried that without real hands on it will be very difficult to pass the exam but the costs to set up a video home lab are too expensive.
Sounds like you have same thoughts I do. I did pay for official video course from Cisco on Voice part, and honestly I think it's not that helpful, it's good to have but it will not give you knowledge to pass the exam. So I am not buying this course for video anymore. I did not start video at all yet I am still looking why I should even have it, what that will give me. Right now I'd rather concentrate on CCNA SECURITY and CCNP R&S.
When I was studying for VOICE I had full blown CUCM with CUC and CUPS and I was able to use 6 moths trial license few times, but I can't do this with VIDEO this is just not an option. So far I have Video course on hold unless I will start working with this technology day to day.
Congrats Vlad on passing CICD, especially when you weren't yet working on the equipment day to day.
CIVND I thought was difficult, I passed on Saturday, huge relief, now on to CCNP Collab.
I used Safari Books, which has the OCG, it also has a CIVND video course by icollege, which is useful. If you register with the site, they are always putting on deals, I got 50% off for the year. $200.
I would read all the Device guides, which is difficult and quite boring when its 400 pages, but use a doco highlighter, which is very handy for key information.
