I would like to ask everyone what their opinion is of the Cisco Press books for the study of the next level. I have always been a huge fan of Todd Lammle's Sybex books because the explain better and are not written as technical. (by that I mean they won't put you to sleep)
It seems that the only books out there are the Cisco Press ones. If you read comments on Amazon about the books they are less than stellar.
There are no Sybex books that I can find that are up to date.
Any recommendations on what to pick up?
