Thanks! I used both the Exam certification guide and The self study guide. As for other material I am currently working as a network engineer so i have the opportunity to apply some of things im learning through the CCNP curriculum.

I have also rented rack time from to pratice some of the switching topics in the BCMSN.

For the BCSI I used Dyanmips, its a great tool to use to practice whatever routing protocol you want, or even route redistribution.
