Cisco has a new (or at least new to me) Cisco Learning Network website. It's a very nice consolidation of information on Cisco certifications, careers, and training.
The site is broken down into five main sections - Cisco Learning Home, Careers, Connections, Certifications, and Learning Center.
The site has some really good information. I've found links to TAC training classes and tutorials, VoDs on various topics (including the CCDE), blogs, and practice tests. Each certification is also highlighted and information is consolidated for easy access.
I also like the website layout and tools. It's a well designed site, easy to navigate, and has good tools; particularly the menu bars at the top right of the page:
A good site to check out - The Cisco Learning Network.
