Collaboration study materials

Hi all, Need to get cracking on CCNP Collab and wondering what material people are using to study? The Foundation Guides from Cisco Press are the only books I've found and they've got pretty pathetic reviews on Amazon and Safari. Starting read the CIPTV1 book, and it so far (3-4 chapters in) just seems like the CCNA material :( I've looked at the Kevin Wallace videos, but based off the first one, where he just jumps into config for a H323 gateway, they seem random and only good for review..

What have you guys used for studying these exams?

I used the Cisco Press books and the INE videos to study for my CCNP Voice.

I took the CCNP Voice just before it was retired. There was very little study material available. I believe this is because many candidates skip the CCNP and go for the CCIE. In hind sight, I probably should have done that.

I hope that the CCNP Collab tests are more relevant and materials are more available. If not, look for CCIE study materials and use those -- it's the same material.

The CCIE Collaboration Quick Reference Guide is pretty good. It's available on Scribd.

Good luck.

Thanks, I'll check it out and the product SRNDs.

SRND and the CCIE Quick reference guide are two good resources. I just started on the third exam. The official cert guide for it is unfinished...

...that's another thing. Cisco should ensure study materials are available before an exam goes live. Cisco Press should be working with the community of authors and SMEs to make sure this happens. It would be good for them; I'm sure that test sales slow down in the lull between the test being released and adequate study material becoming available.

Agreed. It's a bit ridiculous to be studying for an exam when the official cert guide put out is unfinished. I don't even think it's half done to be honest. We'll see how it goes...

Yeah I've lost a lot of faith in Cisco Press due to the endless poor reviews of their books. Thanks, I'm going to start looking at some of the CCIE material today.

SRNDs and labbing. The exam material is a great source of what you need to know.. use the aforementioned to learn it. I didn't read more than two chapters for any of the NP Collab exams
