If you are in the process of working toward your Cisco CCDE certification, there are some important exam updates that you need to be aware of. As you may already be aware, the CCDE certification is a process that allows candidates to demonstrate their advanced knowledge and skill using principles and fundamentals of network infrastructure design within large networks. A major part of this certification involves a two-pronged exam process that has recently undergone important updates.
Certification candidates who are taking the 352-001 CCDE exam after March 29, 2012 should prepare using CCDE Written Exam Topics v2.0 resource. The written exam is a two-hour assessment that contains between 90-110 questions. In order to ensure sufficient preparation, candidates are also encouraged to consult the exam engine tutorials produced by Testslive. Testslive is committed to providing the most accurate simulation of actual 352-001 CCDE exam questions so that you can achieve total mastery and competency of the written concepts required for expert level design responsibilities.
The CCDE certification also requires an eight-hour practical exam, which has also been updated. Similar to the written exam updates, candidates who will take this exam after March 29, 2012 should prepare using the CCDE Practical Exam Topics v2.0. This exam will cover various scenarios that require the candidate to analyze design related issues, justify design decisions and optimize networks based on effective best practices for a given situation. In addition to resources such as www.testslive.com and current training tools, candidates are encouraged to review training information from previous versions of CCDE certification materials.
