What is the best book to study for the ROUTE test with? The official route cert guide by Odom?

Planning to use GNS3 to sim for the route exam

    CCNP Route Foundation Guide is the best book I know of. I have both the study guide and this set and they are well worth it. It goes well in depth on the topics and gives some good examples.

    I think “very senior” gets stuck in there because the last six yahoos that applied for the position couldn’t tell a packet from a Snickers bar.

    Luck is where opportunity and proper planning meet

    I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

    I find this to be a great book.

    Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE) Foundation Learning Guide: Foundation learning for the ROUTE 642-902 Exam

    Very in-depth and not padded with "life stories" and such.

    I met someone recently who had passed their CCIE written a few years ago but didn't get the lab done in time. He's going back now to do his NP (he skipped the NP before), and he told me that the foundation books go deeper into the technologies than the IE materials did.

    The OCG for ROUTE is good. I won't recommend OCG for SWITCH nor TSHOOT though. But i felt prepared enough with the ROUTE book!
    Kudos to W.Odom

    The Foundation Learning guide is very good, so is the old Cisco Press BSCI book for most of the subjects. I'd give the certification guide a miss, there are quite a few mistakes in it.
