What books should I buy?

Dieg0MDieg0M Member Posts: 861
I have 150$ budget from my company to buy books. I would like suggestion on what I should buy.
I already have:
Routing TCP/IP Vol1/2
MPLS Fundamentals
Cisco QoS 2nd Edition
CCIEv4 Written OCG
All CCNP track books.
CCNA Security
Practical Packet Analysis

I would like good BGP, Multicast or Design related book.

Any suggestion appreciated.

    Internet Routing Architectures (BGP textbook)
    Developing IP multicast networks
    Interdomain multicast routing
    Deploying IPv6 networks
    IPv6 Fundamentals

    You gonna get owned on multicast and IPv6 without beefing up. IRA + Routing vol. 2 takes care of BGP. Do BGP properly before MPLS otherwise your head will spin with MPLS-VPN.

    You are probably right about IPv6. I think I might pick up a BGP book, a multicast book and an IPv6 book.

    Internet Routing Architecture is a good book. A little older (most of the good Cisco books seem to be getting long in the tooth), but still a good read on BGP.
    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.

    What did you make of the "Developing IP Multicast Networks" book?
    Thinking I may have to add that to my list as well, since Multicast is my weakest area.

    It is apparently a very good reference for Multicast, despite it's age.

    Not much has changed in Multicast.

    Ending up buying:
    Developing IP multicast networks
    Internet Routing Architectures
    Deploying IPv6 networks

    The multicast one is just pure gold. The BGP one is also very very good. I havn't got to the IPv6 one yet.
