  1. Hi dbarn. Congratulation to become CCDA Certified. plseae let me know about the CCDA Exam fee.Thanks MH.Exam fee was 150 EUR (I m from EU), but in e-mail with subject Cisco Testing Confirmation Letter , there was something like this:Total Purchases: $US 150.00Unfortunatelly, Cisco is counting 1USD = 1EUR

  2. Dear sir,
    your blog help me a lot. but When i click any of study guide or videos link its showing error and a popup comming for this file is not available.
    kindly help me how could i get this materials.

  3. CCDA 640-864 Pass4sure – v 26.0 / 157 Qs is still valid . cleared ccda with 1000 on jan21,2015 ..All Q’s were from the dump

  4. Hi careercert!

    Are you going to send to applicants new version of CCDA dump ? The new version has appeared 30.04.2014 at pass4sure with 157 question. I’ve bought one week ago dump with 133 questions. Would be nice.

  5. Hi !

    Is this dump CCDA 640-864 Pass4sure – v 20.0 / 133 Qs – GB#24 still valid and up to date ? It seems to me that nearly one year passed since last update .

  6. I’m guessing the careercert got sued or got legal threats from Cisco, as this site has stopped updating with new materials. Hoping its not true, but gotta be some reason why they stopped updating.

  7. careeercert,
    i cannot download the CBT nuggets…..can u please upload it again…
    please….if anyone has the link…please reply me

  8. please assist, I’m getting the error when saying wrong password when I enter the ‘’ password

    1. if you check torrent from other sites you wud notice its the same…640-861 was an other exam but some new materials were added to it. I guess CBT dint want to make new videos so they updated the old one

  9. Hi Creercert
    thanks for the great service and help , would you please advise when the new CCDA course material will be updated ? i have the electronic version of the new CCDA book .. but need PPT and quick reference guide which is absolutely different than what we have in there.

  10. pls update ta site…. its so borin….. as ta design 2.1 has came far befor…. yu people dint updated yet…. tats careercert is absolutly down……

    1. hi mohammed,
      I am taking my route exam coming monday. can you tell me how was the route exam. any questions from p4s.If you can share the latest p4s

  11. Bought the latest p4s for CCDA 864 a while ago.
    Like MMs statement, for me its useless because of two kind of errors. 1st, sometimes the chooseable answers provided in the questions arent correct, so u cant answer correct. 2nd, the answers to the questions arent correct.
    To me, there where to much errors in the first 25 questions, so the faith was gone. I hadnt my test yet, but i learned with the official cisco cert guide, so i recognized the errors.

  12. I haven’t looked at the pass4sure, but I saw something else, same amount of Q’s as the P4S with a ton of wrong answers and incomplete questions. Sux. It was valid with is accuacy of what the questions are, but not all the answers it says are correct are actually correct.

  13. Has anybidy passed 640-864 with Pass4sure recently….?Please upload any successfull attempt with any test engines..

  26. Dear Careercert,
    I am going to write my CCDA(640-863) on 24th Dec.Please advise that TI 5.71 and AT 1.3 are still valid.
    Looking forward for you positive response

  29. Careercert, Dude , man.. come on.. please update the dumps.. puh-leaze.. I am stiiiiil waiting for your updates dude…


  30. Hi Careercert.I want to write my CCDA exam last week of Nov . I have studied v2.0 material and cbt nuggets.Now what should i do to pass my CCDA exam. The Uploaded dumps are valid for CCDA V2.1.

  31. Hi there:

    Regrading to the new DESGN v2.1 exam that will be available on December 16. Does that mean the (v2.0) will not be available after December 16 of 2010?

    Any explanation will be greatly appreciated it

    1. you can find these kind of information on Cisco’s website. Let’s all agree to do a little bit of research before we post questions to careercert. We need him to work on more imp things like dumps and materials 😉

      To answer your questions: The v2.0 exam has already been stopped since Nov 7th. Also, it does not make sense to have two versions of the exam. Why would Cisco do that anyways?


  32. Hi, Does anyone know if the TI 5.71 and AT 1.3 have the same questions on as P4S. I only have TI and AT as P4S doesnt seem to work on my computer. Do I need all 3 or will I be ok with AT and TI. Cheers.

  33. Hi Careercert… Dude, we know u r tied up with so much, but puh-leaze let us know about the latest study materials and the dumps… I am still waiting to book the exam and i will do it only after you give the signal man.

    u da dude

  34. Cleared the Exam with 1000/1000 score today. Thanks for Actual Test 221Q & Test-Inside 128 Q are valid and more than enough to get a centum.

  35. Hi Careercert,

    matter of fact , even the Testinside dumps has changed.. Would u please look into that too.


  36. Hi Careercert,

    The p4s dump for CCDA has changed. It now has 222 Qs. Would you be kind enough to upload the latest version for us please?

    Thanks a lot careercert.. you are helping so many individuals and their families directly.. God bless you my friend.

  39. Passed the CCDA yesterday 1000/1000. P4S v2.77 is all you need. However, it has 2 new questions:

  43. passed ccda yesterday, achieved 1000, 64 of 65 questiones were from TI&P4S(in that one which was missing i was asked to D&D circuit/packet switch and leased line definitions), posted version are still valid. Good luck and thanks for the wonderful source material!!!

  45. Hello All,

    I have scheduled my exam for Friday, hopefully i'll come back with good news.. Wish me luck

  46. I've taken the exam today and passed.The dumps are still valid. I had only one new question about matching the routing protocols (EIGRP, RIP, BGP, OSPF, Static) with their use in networks.

  47. Ther should not be a problem. U can still write the exam by refering the same dumps. There is no new dumps in the market yet.

    All the best

  48. Guys,

    Had my CCDA exam booked for this morning, but got a call from the exam center saying that they are restructuring the exam so I ave to do it on Friday. Any clue if this means that the dumps will no longer be valid, or is it still safe to sit for the exam with the current dumps???

  49. Anyone passed CCDA(640-863)exam lately? Are the dumps still valid ? I'll take the exam next week.

  50. Please help with the latest P4S for CCDA. Ready to contribute in group buy offer too.

  63. Hi,
    I wanted to know about the CCDA course. Is it worth studying from the CCDA study guide because I am done with 3 chapters and everything seems to be pretty generic, i mean commonsense. is it better to just glance at the book once and prepare from Dumps for exam???

  64. guys i passed exam today.dumps are still valid 90%.I got 3 new questions…thanks careercert.

  65. @kuru did you get the questions from above p4s and TI dumps ? are they still valid ? please reply

    And I sincerely thank CareerCert for their services.

  69. Hi,

    Thank you very much for your update. Is there any simulation type questions in the exam. Do you remember the question that is out from the dumps. Thanks.

  70. @ Kuru

    Yes I have taken the exam passed with 961/100, P4S 181 Questions and TestInside 128 Questions are are the valid dumps, just one question from Wireless was out of these dumps.

  71. Hi,

    Have u taken the exam on 30th april. Please give an update about the valid dumps for exam preparation.

  72. I am giving ccda on 30th April, preparing with P4S and TestInside.

    Will update with the results and questions after exam.

  73. @ Raj
    I think after CCNA u should go for CCNP. Atlease give routing and switching paper before CCDA because cisco itself says that for CCDA, CCNA and BCMSN level knowledge is required 🙂

    Is CCDA 640-863 Testinside v5.71 – 128 Q's still valid. I have my exam 1st may thus net week. I need your advice.

  75. Hi careercert,

    Can u upload the p4s for the ccda the new version is updated this Apr 16th,2010 with 189 questions. I think the test inside is not updated yet it contains the same 128 questions. I need to take the exam urgently can u please help me out by updating with the new pass4sure dumps.

  76. @ Michael,

    There is no need for group buy of CCDA pass4sure.
    The available Testinside v5.71 is more accurate and better than p4s.


  77. @Careercert: Thanks!!! I had seen some users stating to take CCNP before CCDA, so was confused because of that…..

    @Anonymous: Thanks bro for the motivation…. I am thinking for CCIE and that is my final goal in my said path….. But on a immediate basis, I need some money to eat and pay the rent… so was thinking what to take… 🙂

  78. Think big…..go for CCIE bro…now things getting tough day by day. It will take atleast a year to have CCNP n CCDP. Should go for CCIE but not in Routing & Switching. try some other track tooo…..

  79. Hi,
    I need some advise. I have completed my CCNA and I am having some strong base of the CCNA since I read the TODD Lammle book and using dumps just as a reference.
    I need to take some other CISCO certification. I was planning to take CCDA.
    Is it okay to take CCDA before CCNP??

    I am thinking of my career path as CCNA -> CCDA -> CCNP -> CCDP -> CCIE.

    Is this a good path to choose?


  80. the current version have also 188 ques…so is the matter of one question?…I have also an exam on April 10, plz let me know if any updated P4S is available….n specially if it wud interactive…..thnx alot…

  81. i passed on 18/02 892/1000
    testinside and p4s was almost 1to1
