Hi all I have some doubts concerning
Specialist certification data center.

i am certified CCNA / CCDA and and I'm planning to certify Date

Center Design Specialist (642-971).
1 - there are no official books, the only guide that I
found is the design guide pdf 2.5 of Cisco. (someone knows
tell other material?)
2 --To renew the certification DataCenter Design Specialist, I must again overcome the specific examination or any examination is sufficient to overcome a 642-x

Thanks to all

    Hi Antoine,

     

    Firstly, i don't think you should doubt a specialist certification. this just creates more focus and with Data Centers on the rise globally it's really not a bad investment.

     

    Secondly, i would suggest you get Data Center Fundamentals Cisco Press, Campus Network Design Cisco Press and Top Down Network Design.

     

    Thirdly,the 642 exams should  recertify all exams.

     

    Good luck with the exam. If you need any help let me know.

     

    regards,

    Hi Antione,

     

    i must apologise for mis-understanding your question.

     

    i thought you wanted to do a Specialist exam to recertify your CCDA or CCNA,

     

    You cannot recertify a specialist exam with a 642.... you must rewrite your specialist exam or pass your CCIE, CCDE.

     

     

    Sorry about the misunderstanding.... This is why i said to have the specialist cert would not hurt at all.

     

    Are you interested in Specialising in Data Center???

     

    Cheers,

    I don't think they will change it soon.

     

    i'm busy with the composite as well so that i can achieve my CCNP, IP an DP at the same time as i have completed my other exams.

     

    Good Luck.

    Hi

     

    I have passed this exam. Cisco Partner education e-learning (offiline course) is enough to pass this.
