CCIE Reading

Unanswered Question

Starting my CCIE studies.


It's been recommended to read the Cisco Press TCP/IP books by  Jeff Doyle and Jennifer Carol. There are two volumes, one was published in 2001 and the other 2005. I've seen fairly recent recommendations for both publications. Both seem rather oldish.  Is there a newer version and if not, which of the publictions is recommended?


Thank you, Pat.

Those are both good fundamental references and still relevant despite their age. You will see them recommended on both the official reading list as well as many well-respected CCIEs' accounts of how they succeeded. (Example, 2nd Example)

Pat,


As Marvin correctly noted (hi Marvin), these books are fundamentals, no matter how old they are.  You must have and read them.
