I believe Cisco R&S(Written and Lab) exams have been revamped in V5.
I would like to know if there is a good Book that covers the material for both written and lab exam in depth.

I know that there are some books that cover just partial part of the Exams, but I need a book that covers everything in written as well as Lab Exams

Thank you

I would for now just study as much version 4 material as possible, since most of the material will still be on the V5 exam. I would expect there to be more available v5 texts around and after the V5 lab starts this summer.

I understand that. I know frame-relay, pfr, switch qos, and some other odd and ends, but the essentials will still be on the test i.e. switching, spanning tree, routing protocols, etc. That is why I am setting at least continue studying V4 material, most will still be valid.

Netscaler Common Configuration How To guides

If you use NetScaler you will want to see these guides. The NetScaler How To Guides show administrators how to get NetScaler up and configured by providing instructions for common scenarios and some not so common ones.

Agreed with Soulja, you should start to study from v4 material and bypass some topic it has been retired on v5.

The following topics completely removed from v5 (from popular ccie training center):

    Flexlinks
    ISL
    Layer 2 Protocol Tunneling
    Frame-Relay
    WCCP
    IOS Firewall
    IOS IPS
    RITE
    RMON
    RGMP
    RSVP QoS
    WRR/SRR

per the link above, I guess some books are coming up.

I believe the most important one is :
Cisco CCIE Routing and Switching v5.0 Configuration and Troubleshooting Practice Labs Bundle 9780133786323 due: 3/31

Since new CCIE exam is based on Configuration/Troubleshooting / Diagnostic.
Diagnostic might be based on Configuration and Troubleshooting.

Yeah, I am pretty sure diagnostics will have a lot to do with packet sniffing and analyzing traffic.

My point is if I purchase the above book, then I can use it for written and Lab Exams…

if there are 2 separate books , one for written and one for lab exams, then I would like to know about that and get the books….

I would think you would use the same book. Are you looking for practice labs? I am sure INE , IPExpert, or Narbick will be rolling some stuff out soon for version 5.
