  1. I have half of these already. My goal is to take the first half of the CCIE before year’s end. I’m renewing my CCNA next month.

    1. Yeah – this gave me an excuse to purchase Optimal Routing Designs – which I have read chapters of but always wanted to read in its entirety.

  2. As an ex student of Anthony from INE London CCIE bootcamps X2 i value his recommendations highly he gave me the most inspiring speech i have ever heard which drove me forward in my career, HOWEVER after many years in the business i do not agree with a massive reading list with expensive usually out of date or poorly written books and soft cover (yukk) Use the docs get to know them inside out as this is what you will turn to when you need them

    Cisco and Red Hat both done a survey to ascertain what makes a mediocre engineer from a top rank professional one THE DOCS

    1. I love this Anthony! Thank you so much for the feedback and I will be sure to incorporate the amazing Cisco Docs in the prep. I also need to visit you this year!!!!
