I'm very impressed with what I have seen so far. I was studying for TSHOOT, but I plan on sitting with these for about 6 weeks then take the TSHOOT exam. Cisco looks like they aren't playing with what they exepect for a Professional Level Engineer. I would even advise people who passed the other 2 exams to take a look. It fits very well in line with going for CCIE.
Currently Reading

CUCM SRND 9x/10, UCCX SRND 10x, QOS SRND, SIP Trunking Guide, anything contact center related

    Enjoy the books. I have the full collection myself but only read SWITCH, and it's fantastic.

    I hear ROUTE is also well written so I can't wait to get into that....

    I have only been reading the switch book, but I would say the same for it. While it is still cisco talking cisco, it is alot less "This is important, and this, and this, and this..." and a bit more of "This is important, and this is something that could happen, and this is something that could happen..." so it makes it a bit more of a realistic read IMO.

    Granted, fundamentals are still fundamentals... it is hard to make them not dry.

    i'm around halfway through the ROUTE foundation book. i've said it before but i have no problem saying it again, i am so happy this finally came out and i could get away from the official cert guide. it really is amazing the difference between the two in terms of knowledge contained and the writing styles.
    WIP: IPS exam
