Passed BSCI

I passed with a 801 and not happy about it. I flew through the exam and was done in about 35 min. I was hammered on EIGRP and BGP, had less OSPF and IS-IS (both are my strong points) 3 SIMs which I nailed so I think that saved my butt.

Can anyone offer advice on a good BCMSN book? The Sybex is lacking info and the Cisco press looks like its written by a 3rd grader. I hear the older Cisco press (Karen Webb) is much better just lacks QoS.
