CCIE Practical Studies Volume I (Solie)

CCIE Practical Studies Volume II (Solie/Lynch)

For the LAB Exam you need a lot practice, you need a Workbook and a Rack from CCIE LAB Training Providers like;

Unlike associate and professional certifications, think why there is Written and LAB for expert certifications :)

Sorry, but you are putting the wrong question and expect the right answer. There is not such thing like " the best CCIE material", and not only for CCIE. You can ask for an advice of what you should read, but the best material to study will be the one that you will feel best that is learning you and make you understand networking for CCIE level.

The books you are asking about are good, but also this is a subjective thing. The definition of TCP, let's say, it's the same but it can be wrotten in many different manners. So, my advice is take this books, and if you feel that you don't understand their explanation, you can try another one. Don't continue with a book if you don't understand what the author is saying.

After all the human brain is unique and we can interpret the information in different ways.

Go to search engines, forum, and so on...check after words like CCIE, books, study,...and try to read some random chapter from a book. If you understand you should continue. When you finish and you take some tests and see that you have a lot of "black holes" than you can read some other books.

I hope you understand my point of view.

Good luck!

The ones mentioned will e Jeff Doyle. I have not read Vol 2 much, but Vol1 is my all time fave technical book - I find it one of the most readable techy books I have seen.

I have just done my re-cert 350-001 and the main book I used was Wendell Odom third edition. It does not read or flow as well as Doyle, but it has most of the stuff for the written in there.

This all assumes you are talking R&S!
