“Designing Cisco Network Service Architectures (ARCH) (Authorized Self-Study Guide), Second Edition”

Rating *****

I would strongly recommend this book for the Cisco CCDP certification aspirers. Since I am working on the latest Network Upgrade plan it helped me a lot to understand the design considerations, Cisco Design Standards.  Based on this book I could able to come out with an excellent Network Design for the Organization which I am working. This manual is good to the pass the Cisco 642-873 ARCH exam.

The topics are covered in detail and extensive, the best part of this book happens to be the organization of the chapters; there are 12 chapters in this book. This deals with the topics like SONA, Enterprise Campus Network Design, Enterprise Data Design, SAN Design Considerations etc.

One more interesting fact which helps is the reference segment at the end of each chapter. If someone wants to achieve his CCDP this is the book, you should go for it.  This is the right manual which can be used as a Study guide to achieve CCDP. Also this manual proves to be a helpful guide for reference.
