which would I be better served doing? I will do them both, but my Co-worker suggested
I do the CCNP first before CCDA? Any advice please....
It doesn't matter it is a four test series and the first 3 are the same. CCNP has "Cisco Internetwork Troubleshooting" test and CCDP has "Cisco Internetwork Design" Test.
There's no reason to backtrack to the CCDA certification after you've achieved your CCNP, if you should decide to bypass the CCDA and take that first. Then you only need to pass the CID 640-025 exam to become a CCDP. The way I understand it, the CCNA exam is often passable immediately after succesful completion of the CCNA, the questions are mostly scenario oriented where you need to understand and be able to apply what was learned previously in your CCNA track. Still, the passing score is much lower than what was necessary for the CCNA. However I, myself, am passing on the CCDA and moving on to my CCNP so I have no direct experience to support this with but I have it on good authority so to speak.
Just in case there I confused anyone, I mistyped the below sentence originally. I meant CCDA...oop
