CatOS Reference Material

I am attempting to track down a good reference for CatOS commands and something that may lay out an IOS equivalent. I did a Google search and came across this book:

Amazon.com: Cisco Field Manual: Catalyst Switch Configuration (0619472050439): David Hucaby, Stephen McQuerry: Books

I am not really looking for a huge read but rather a reference guide that points out commands and their purposes that I can fall back on when needed. Not sure if this book is what I am needing or not.

Recommendations?

    Seems like a good book for CATOS commands.

    Any reason why you guys cant upgrade to an IOS version? what series of switches are you guys running?

    I cant remember if cisco was still trying to phase out the CATOS that is why i ask if you can upgrade to IOS version on your devices. Even the nexus switches run another version of OS different from CATOS and IOS.

    The reason we still have devices running CatOS is because we have TONS of networking devices 50,000+ most of the old stuff is over seas in less developed countries.

    Cisco LAN Switching (CCIE Professional Development series) is an excellent read and covers a great deal of CatOS. I have used it many times over for CatOS reference material. It's rather dated, however.
