Need good source to study for my CCIE exam

Hello,
I have my CCNP and CCDP, but would like to get my CCIE in Routing and Switching.
Do you guys have any good links to any websites that provide simulated training for this?
Please, no advertisers or salespeople reply....I only want replies from people who have actually used these simulators/websites, etc.
Thanks!

tfowles,
Did you try the exam guide from CiscoPress at all?

I did use the 2nd addition of the Exam Guide by Odom and it was actually one of the best Cisco Press books I've ever read.  It also provided a good base for preparing for the written exam.

Preparing for the lab is much different from preparing for the written, as it requires a much deeper understanding of the technologies and how they interact (as well as where to look things up in the documentation site when you're stumped).

From a booklist perspective, if you're coming right out of CCNP prep, the Odom book should be sufficient for the written exam.  For the lab you probably need to go deeper into topics such as QoS and Multicasting and there are some decent Cisco Press books on those topics.  The Routing TCP/IP vol I and vol II are also highly recommended reading, as well as "Internet Routing Architectures" by Halabi (BGP book).
