I completed my CCNP about 2 years and I could use some advice on what path to take next. I really want to go for my CCIE. However, my job is only with small business and do not work that often with cisco routers and switches. Here is some of my questions. I have read over the expert forum that is CCIE exams are doable but, access or experience with Cisco 2600, or 1800s per example and 3500s (3560 new) switches would help you to prepare.
I've gone throught the CCIE books list and I'm not sure which books are useful to start with, I will be very much happy if some one can give me some guidelines and information about study materials and books to purchase for my CCIE.
