Knowledge of acronyms associated with technology is a substantial component of the exam. As a result, you have to understand the technology and the terminology associated with it. The CCDA exam uses acronyms liberally within question and answer scenarios. Knowing all the acronyms presented can make the difference between feeling confident in your answer and second guessing yourself.
Typically, candidates will have practical experience in some but not all areas covered in the exam. Candidates should do a self-evaluation to identify areas where they have less practical experience and plan on spending extra time on those objectives. Give particular attention to comparing technology components in those areashow they may differ and how they may complement each other. In other words, know how different offerings in the same technology area work together or complement one another.
