I was pleasantly surprised to notice this week that December 14th 2015 will be the last day to take the current CCDA and CCDP exams. A quick look at the Cisco Press store however shows no new CCDAv3 or CCDPv3 publications in the coming soon section. It has been a long time coming for Cisco to get these courses updated with relevant topics of the day. Especially since Cisco’s Design track has become the hottest certification track recently due to the coveted CCDE and CCAr.
While I am on the CCDE topic, a new Cisco Press publication titled, CCDE Study Guide was just released a few days ago. I look forward to reviewing this book to see how it will attempt to guide the reader into thinking like a design expert! Unfortunately, there has been no official announcement on when the CCDE will get its v3 update, so I guess we will all be waiting in suspense for a little while longer.
