Cisco had promised us Christmas 2010 editions of these new exams. Those dates have slipped again.
The new Cisco CCDA 640-864 DESGN and CCDP 642-874 ARCH exams are now scheduled to hit by January 31, 2011.
Both exams promise to test new material regarding virtualization and data centers. Stay tuned to see if these new exams do actually materialize. For those tracking such things - this is the third new date for these exams. :-)
