Can I use the text book for 501 (SECUR) to prepare the 503 exam? There is no
text book avaliable for 503. By the way, which models of router and switch
do I need for practicing purpose?

I just passed this exam.  I studied from the recently released 503 Quick
Reference sheets which are downloadable from the Cisco Press website.  I
found that the only way to get an idea of how much is required on the
new syllabus, then cross referenced that with the 502 SNRS exam study
guide and PDFs off the Cisco web site to beef up each section.  Not an
easy exam to prepare for as a consequence, but definitely start by
getting those Quick Reference sheets.  Before I downloaded those I had
no idea just how much was required in each section.  They only cost
about US$20 or so.

With regards to practicing if you can get hold of some recent IOS images
for 7200 or 3600 routers, set up the Dynamips open source router to
practice on.  I found that invaluable for practicing all the various
types of VPN.

Best of luck :-)

The Dynamips program only emulates certain models of router.  The 7200
and 3600 were the easiest to set up in my experience.

Re: CCSP 642 503
Can I use 1900 and 2610 or 2501 to practice?
Is there any particular requirement for the equipments?
3600 is a layer 3 switch. Any topics are related to layer 3 switching for

Thanks a lot
