Best CCNP ROUTE lab book/site/etc?

So I did buy the CCNP ROUTE simplified since I heard such good things about it (And I can't stand the dryness of the OCG lol). Will the labs in the back of the book suffice or is it recommended to use more than just those? If anyone's curious, I'm not necessarily doing this to get the cert just yet (As I still have one class to finish my AAS and wanna finish the NA Sec first) but in my work center, we are doing an upgrade to version 15 and wanted to get my hands dirty with the advanced stuff (And I was extremely curious what the variance command was used for since I saw it in one of the config upgrades).

I'd also recommend the Student Lab Manual (SLM) which is also free.
I suplimented some labbing too with GNS3 Vault videos online on youtube. You can type in almost any subject to lab in youtube and can stuble upon a step by step tutorial by somebody. When I first began studying I labbed scenarios from CBT nuggest videos in a follow-along method.
Don't limit your physical resources to 1 book either. I suggest getting the Foundation Learning Guide (FLG) book and practice the same lab concepts as explained in that book.
