CCIE R&S Reading List #2 – INE

The first step in obtaining INE mastery is building a solid foundation of knowledge. For all CCIE candidates alike this means hitting the books, and we mean hitting them hard. In order to help sort through the plethora of printed resources available we have compiled a manageable list of recommended books that all CCIE candidates should read. We typically recommend that candidates start with vendor independent resources first before moving on to implementation specific information.
