I am currently working on my BSCI 642-901 studies and have been wondering what books are recommended for the rest of the CCIP tests. There seem to be specific books for the CCNP path, but the QOS, MPLS and BGP tests for the CCIP don't seem to have any specific books written for those tests. Has anyone worked on this path and do you have any suggestions of which books to pick up? I'm already planning on getting the Routing TCP/IP volumes 1 and 2, as I've heard they are basically required reading for the professional and expert levels. Thanks in advance.
Even though it says it's for IP telephony, the QoS test is the same for CCVP and CCIP. Here is the book for that:
As far as BGP goes, Internet Routing Architectures by Sam Halabi is pretty much the standard. That and TCP/IP 1 and 2 should be plenty.
I am taking the combined MPLS/BGP exam soon. For MPLS, I am reading MPLS Fundamentals. There are tons of books on MPLS on Cisco Press, although none are specifically marketed as exam certification or study guides.
