At the time this exam profile was posted, Cisco Press was rolling out a Certification Guide (book) and a LiveLesson (video) product for the DCICN exam, to be followed later by a book and video products for the DCICT 640-916 exam.
The printed DCICT 640-916 Official Cert Guide focuses on the technology included in the DCICT exam, while providing a variety of exam preparation tools. Each chapter and major part of the book ends with review activities. The book notes the most important topics to study for the exam (key topics). It also includes a DVD question bank with exam software.
You may also want to use the Premium edition of the book, either in addition to the print book, or instead of the print book. The CCNA Data Center DCICT 640-916 Official Cert Guide Premium Edition eBook and Practice Test is the typical Cisco Press Premium eBook product. With this product, you get the book in many eBook formats, appropriate for Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, PDF, and other formats. Additionally, the Premium Edition comes with all the DVD content from the printed book, but in downloadable format. Finally, the Premium Edition includes additional practice questions not found in the print book. With the substantial discount offered in the back of the print book, many people use the eBook in addition to the print book, to get access to the extra questions, and for the convenience of the eBooks.
