  1. Sounds great Anthony! Looking forward to it…

    Is there a lot of new subjects in the new stuff? (Currently CCNA/CCDA) working towards the P level

    Maybe it’s good as a Brush-up before the CCDP?

    1. There is certainly a fair amount of new conversations to have – like virtualization and data center. Also, in classic discussions like Campus Design, we now need to consider new tech like TRILL and VTP 3. I see the course as being a real nice brush up for you before the wonderful world of CCDP.

      1. Most awesome.

        I’ll have a go at before I dig into Jeremys CCNP. 🙂

        Putting all focus in on Christmas and Re-Cert CCNA @ CiscoLiveBerlin.
        Then the we off to the races 🙂

        Goal is to have a CCNP/CCDP by the end of 2016. Route/Switch skills are there but the Cisco-Exams are tricky you know 🙂

        1. Killer plan – yes – the darn exams are tricky – especially lately when they wander the f@ck off blueprint.

  2. Hi, Anthony.

    Loving your courses. I have been following the 200-310 CCDA on CBT Nuggets. I guess I am hoping to find out how much of the CBT NUggets videos overlap there will be between 640-864 CCDA and 200-310 CCDA. I will be writing CCDA 200-310 before July 2016 to renew my CCNA. Since no book, and read your 12/10/15 post, there is all the ammunition to worry. Not sure what would I do without your courses. And on another note, what does blueprint mean here?
