CCNP Collaboration?

Hello, I was sent over here from CCNA subreddit. Was curious if anyone had any recommendations on study materials for this exam set. I have talked with a few people saying the Collaboration exams are changing in October? Has anyone else heard this? I have another friend going to take it but may not be able to get all studying done by October for all 4 exams.

I've heard nothing about NA/NP changing, IE is for sure changing mid-July to v2. Honestly, for study materials... When I went through NP Collab I used the OCG + 10.X SRND for most everything.

This is incredibly helpful. Been reading the SRN on and off for a few months. A lot of great info.

SRND is our bible, can't even tell you how many times I read it (painfully) for CCIE Collab.
