Over the past year and a half (and still ongoing), I’ve burned through a handful of books and other resources while working toward the CCIE. I know quite a few people have already dumped out their recommended reading lists – but I figure it’s still worth writing out what has been working for me 🙂
I went ahead and studied for the written exam independently of the lab – so I’ll be providing the resources that I used for each separately.
Also note: This page will be updated as I continue working toward the certification. I’m not done yet!
