I'm wandering if anyone could make some suggestions regarding training materials for the Qos, MPLS and BGP exams of the CCIP cert.
I've heard the End to End QoS design Ciscopress book is good for QoS.
O'Rielly have a BGP book that looks good aswell.
Has anyone here self-studied these exams and if so, can you recommend any materials?
I had already taken the QoS test when I did the CCVP. I used the QoS Exam Certification Guide by Wendell Odom for that test. For the CCIP, I took the combined BGP+MPLS test. I used the following books:
MPLS Fundamentals by Luc de Ghein
Internet Routing Architectures by Sam Halabi
Routing TCP/IP Vol II by Jeff Doyle
Good luck in your studies!
1) MPLS and VPN Architectures CCIE Edition, Cisco Press
ISBN 1-58705-081-1, 2002
2) The MPLS Primer - An Introduction to Multiprotocol Label Switching, Sean Harnedy, 2002
I would recommend the following Ciscopress books for self studying for the CCIP.
642-642 QOS - Cisco QOS Exam Certification Guide (IP Telephony Self-Study), 2nd Edition by Wendell Odom, Michael Cavanaugh.
642-901 BSCI - Routing TCP/IP Volume I (CCIE Professional Development) by Jeff Doyle, and Routing TCP/IP, Volume II (CCIE Professional Development) by Jeff Doyle, Jennifer DeHaven Carroll. There is a book dedicated to the BSCI exam, but the Doyle books are very well written, and easy to read.
642-661 BGP - Routing TCP/IP, Volume II (CCIE Professional Development) by Jeff Doyle, Jennifer DeHaven Carroll, Cisco BGP-4 Command and Configuration Handbook by William R. Parkhurst, and Internet Routing Architectures, 2nd Edition by Sam Halabi.
642-611 MPLS - MPLS and VPN Architectures, CCIP Edition by Ivan Pepelnjak, Jim Guichard.
