Accurate thumbnail sketches of topics in the blueprint 21 Nov 2003
By "mcnutt37" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I would really rate the book a 3.5. The book does a good job of giving you a 1500 foot view of all of the topics covered in the blueprint (although cisco pulled Token Ring and IPX from the blueprint just this week so ignore those parts).
The fact is of course, you have no hope of passing the exam using this as your only source of information. However, if you go through each chapter, and then fill in with supplementary reading on the topics presented and run some quick labs, it does serve as a good middle ground between the exam blueprint and the low level knowledge you'll need to pass the written exam. Much like the caslow book it makes for a good roadmap.
Ok, now for the bad.
1. Book is worthless for lab preperation. skip the lab oriented chapters, there are better resources elsewhere.
2. Section on MPLS is awful!!!!!!! find another resource.
3. Multicast section was lacking as well. I mean really, really lacking.
4. with a given protocol, cisco wants you to understand how the state machine functions. the book does a great job of explaining the nerd knobs and the theory, but it doesn't really explain how the state machine works and why it was designed that way. knowing this kind of information really facilitates retention of the material and the ability to think through a question. a perfect example would be the chapter on BGP. yes the info is there, but without the "why is it like this" the material is very difficult to understand.
Overall the quality of the book is quite high, and it will help you pass the written exam. Good luck!

Could be better 4 May 2004
By Jean Maurice MEREL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I wanted a tool to review this topics I forgot since I passed my Lab such as DLSW, Bridging, Token Ring, MultiCast, WAN... I failed on a first passed 69% instead of 70%! and then got it on the second pass 3 days later and one day before the end of my certif validation with 76%.
In this book the topics are fairly well covered and offered a good synthesis. However the review questions are too light not of the level of the exam which also include some simple questions (but coverage is so large !).
For someone preparing the lab exam as well, I would recommend to use on the Cisco Web site: 1) the Configuration guides and 2) the "Overview", "Implementation and Configuration" and "Verification and Troubleshooting" pages that you access with [...] -> Technical Support -> Technology support -> Topic of your choice (e.g. IP Multicast). They are really good and covered usual and sophisticated config and known problems and solutions.

Not just a study guide 17 Sep 2003
By K. Speelman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I personally need good reference books on examples of how to set up different types of networks in my everyday job. I have no desire at this time to study for a CCIE certification but am constantly on the lookout for detailed examples on how to set up and configure cisco equipment. This book is loaded with real life examples that can be used as a baseline for any network design type. I recommend this book as a "must have" for your personal library. Well written in easy to understand language and detailed examples that deal with any type network configuration every day.

Just passed the written exam today. 11 Nov 2003
By Justin Callaway - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Took and passed the CCIE written exam this morning. This book is the best one out there for a sole source preparation guide to the CCIE written. When I was studying for the written I did not want to have to buy five books to study, and what this book offered was a great reference/study guide that followed the written exam blueprint extremely well. I strongly recommend this book for anybody that is seriously preparing for the CCIE written exam. Also, based on the content of the book, I think it will be a major resource for my lab preparation as well.

A Great Reference 25 Aug 2003
By CG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Great reference material to have around when you need some answers or examples to resolve that problem which jogs the memory. This book is well laid out and it is obvious that the authors have a lot of experience under their belts. The book is easy reading and the examples are well documented and relevant to day to day workings. I would say buy it, even if you are like me, not taking exams but want a good solid reference around. Good job Rob and Kevin.
