Got a question for those of you that have taken the CCSP certification... what order do you guys suggest to take the 5 tests? I've decided to go with 642-511 CSVPN, not the HIPS test. I've been studying for the 642-522 SNPA so far, only because thats the only book I could find in the store (then someone told me about ciscopress.com and their massive discounts for just signing up. DOH!) So I got all the books that I could get from there (missing SNPA book - wasn't listed on the site).

Also, any suggestions on what else to get to study up? I used testking for my CCNA, but wasn't too impressed.

And my final question, what kind of lab equipment should I get? I need a good excuse to finally buy some equipment, other than my 5505 I have now.

PIX 501 is requisite. Also grab a cheap router, like a 2500. You'll need to know the basics of IOS+FW. As for the rest, I'm as n00b as you. I really need to start getting into the VPN aspects myself.
