i really like volume 1, 2nd edition...but I notice that volume 2 is still in first edition and has not been updated since 2001. any word on if a 2nd edition of volume 2 is in the works?

volume 1 is a great read, but i'm a bit hesitant to buy a book that hasn't been updated since 2001....thoughts?

    No clue on when the second edition will make it to the shelves, but it's a safe bet that you'll get a whole lot out of reading that book. It's still on the CCIE reading list, as is Cisco LAN Switching, which hasn't been updated since 1999. I can attest to the latter being excellent, despite some of the outdated material. While technology-specifications have changed, the foundations and the overall concepts haven't. Pretty much everything that was around six years ago is still being used today, it's just faster and sleeker than it was then.

    It's a good book for BGP and multicast. Most of the concepts are still unchanged and Doyle is a very good explainer. It's on my bookshelf.

    It's a worthwhile book even though it hasn't been updated since 2001, one of the few Cisco Press books I used for the CCIE lab. DOn't forget the Doc CD for the lab.

    While some of these Ciscopress books (routing tcpip vol 2, ira, and switching) are old they contain technologies that havent changed significantly (except for the catos stuff in switching, however comes in use for some like me as I still work with some 5500s and 6500s running catOS) other than IOS caveats and config defaults etc. The core concepts discussed in them are the same.

    If you're worried about a newer editions coming out just ebay your old ones and get the newer editions.

    Even then, it's not that bad to have visual access to CatOS. It's still a relatively prevalent OS.
