Hey Guys


I used Todd Lammle for Network+, ccent, and CCNA. Really good books, not sure who else has used them. Well i emailed him on his website and asked when the new version of CCNP books are comming out. He basically said there is no money in books anymore because everyone downloads them for free online. SO no more CCNP but he will keep up with the CCNA.

SO with that bummed news, whats the best material out? The cisco press? I cant seem to find much else for the new CCNP route

    I think there were always be a need for books but they are getting easier and easier to produce so there's not a lot of money for the authors. Besides that the explosion of sigial media, free guides, tutorials, blogs, etc have somewhat replaced the traditional books in some areas. Plenty of information out there to rely just on books.

    Well you have 3-4 options for ROUTE:

    OCG
    FLG
    ROUTE Simplified
    How to Master CCNP ROUTE

    I've read them all and honestly the best book is either the FLG or the Simplified book. The OCG felt rushed and thrown together and didn't do that good of a job explaining key topics, imo. How to Master Route by Rene Molenaar is good if you're looking for a quick read that does a good job explaining key topics. It lacks details though. Also he's got some great free labs that are linked in the book. The 101 Labs for CCNP by the Simplified authors is also good. HTH
