CCIE Routing and Switching Exam Certification Guide, 4th Edition

I just received the news that Cisco Press will release on 19th of November 2009, the 4th edition of  CCIE Routing and Switching Exam Certification Guide by Wendell Odom, Rus Healy and Denise Donohue.

A brief description from the Cisco Press site:

CCIE-RS-Cert-Guide-4th-Edition“The CCIE Routing and Switching certification is the most respected certification in the industry. The successful CCIE candidate must understand a broad range of network technologies that includes OSI model, bridging, LAN switching, IP and IP Routing protocols, multicast, WAN technologies, and performance management. The exam is notoriously difficult and CCIE candidates must first pass a qualifying written exam. The CCIE Routing and Switching Exam Certification Guide, Fourth Ed., covers all of the topics of the 4.0 written exam. In this updated edition there are content and alignment changes based on the revised v4.0 exam. The newest edition includes 300 pages of new content covering the following topics:

Network optimization


BGP routing policies

Expanded QoS coverage

Expanded WAN coverage

Expanded multicast coverage

Expanded MPLS coverage

IPv6 redistribution”

Currently you can pre-order the book and it will be delivered when published. If you are lucky enough to live in U.S. you can have it shipped for free.

Price and full details about this product can be found on the Cisco Press site.
