Firstly, congratulations on passing the written exam.
As far as the study material goes, you will probably end up making use of several resources as part of your preparation.
Have a look at the RS Lab blueprint and see exactly what is expected of you.
Also, the reading list is pretty comprehensive:
I've heard nothing but good things about the INE material, and I'm sure the representatives here on the CLN will be able to help you pick the best package to help with your studies. Here's the link to all their self-paced material for CCIE RS:
You can have a look at the study schedule I drafted for myself, and perhaps you can incorporate it into your studying. You can find the thread here:
Regards, and good luck with your studies.
Congrates for clearing CCIE R&S written exam.
I am also preparing for this exam. Can you please guide me which books to refer ?
Please let me know if you have soft copy too.
Please check out my blog post....covers a lot of info.
Also - as I said in Sagar's other thread about the same topic - we strongly discourage pirating copywrited materials here on the CLN. In many cases the authors of these books are peers in the community and they deserve what compensation they receive for their efforts in writing and tech editing the books they work on.
Please be careful about exchanging illegal copies of books like that. if you like something, go purchase it. If nobody purchases these, nobody will create them as there's no incentive to do good work.
So always reward the people who bring good things to you and purchase your own copy like you're supposed to!

Although I myself don't support piracy but I have seen people at earlier stage of their career being pushed somehow towards it since most of Cisco Press books are not available in Indian market as Indian version matching economy. So they are either forced to buy US Editions like I am doing most of time for my CCIEs but many people who can't afford 50-100 USD books are forced some how towards piracy.
For Example I am doing CCIE DC at the moment and not a single recommeded reading is available in Indian Market so had no other choice other than buying US editions of those books spending couple of hundered dollars which means thousands of INR.
just my 2 cents....
