Far from all you need for the written...

I'm really dissappointed with this so called official preparation guide for ccie routing and switching qualification (CCIE QE) exam. It's true that to become a CCIE, sitting down and reading a prep. book is not enough; this is what makes CCIE certification different than others. But a book announced as the official prep. guide, should have given more than an a poor overview of each topic. For those people who are preparing for the exam, I suggest the URLs on Cisco's web site, the TAC documents, which are invaluable, richer in content and most upto date in addition to books already wellknown an mentioned in previous reviews; but not this book.
