Differences between CCIE and CCDE lab exams

The CCDE lab exam presents scenarios where you are offered a lot of information:

  • Emails with requests
  • Diagrams

You are then asked a number of questions where you have to select the best technology based on considerations like technological (dis)advantages, budget, availability, business constraints, etc.

For a good example of what the CCDE lab looks like, check out this Cisco Press book:
