    Re: CCDE written

    That looks like a quite comprehensive list to me.  There was a pretty good OSPF equivelent to EIGRP Network Design Solutions which may be worth adding.  You may also want to broaden out in switching if that's on the blueprint.


    If you are focusing on the written then you may want to take a peek at some of the CCIE prep books.  Remember it's an equivalent level of understanding that's needed, if not the same hands-on focus / lower level detail, so that's probably a good benchmark.


    Probably the best bet for written prep is to actually take it.  It's not that expensive compared to the books and other preparation materials, and that will give you a flavour for the level, scope and breadth of the exam.  See the areas you were weak on or guessing, or thought "thank [deity] it didnt ask me about that" and hit the books on those.


    If you can get to a test centre relatively easily it's worth a pop just as part of preparation for a "real" attempt.


    Hope that helps!
