Foundation learning for CCIE exams
A detailed examination of interior routing protocols
CCIE Professional Development: Routing TCP/IP, Volume I, takes readers from a basic understanding of routers and routing protocols through a detailed examination of each of the IP interior routing protocols: RIP, RIP2, IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF, and IS-IS. In addition to specific protocols, important general topics such as redistribution, default routes and on-demand routing, route filtering, and route maps are covered. The book emphasizes techniques for designing networks that efficiently utilize and integrate the IP routing protocols. You will gain a deep understanding of IP routing protocols and learn best-practice techniques for implementing these protocols using Cisco routers. As well, this book will help you master the skills necessary to become an effective CCIE.
Each protocol-specific chapter opens with thorough and lucid coverage of the protocol's capabilities and characteristics. Following sections contain configuration and troubleshooting case studies that cover Cisco specific configuration of the protocol and all commands available for it on the most recent Cisco IOS Software version. Finally, review questions and configuration and troubleshooting exercises on each protocol provide an opportunity to practice for the CCIE exam.
The Cisco effort to facilitate the creation of competent network operations center (NOC) and information systems (IS) staff is exemplified in its CCIE program. To support these efforts, Cisco Press is working closely with CCIE program management to create information products that help build the knowledge and expertise of NOC and IS professionals, as well as provide up-to-date, accurate information on technologies addressed in the CCIE program.
The CCIE Professional Development Series volumes are based on CCIE program guidelines from Cisco. This series is a set of technology-specific volumes designed to meet the needs of CCIE candidates.
This book is part of the Cisco CCIE Professional Development Series from Cisco Press, which offers expert-level instruction on network design, deployment, and support methodologies to help networking professionals manage complex networks and prepare for CCIE exams.

Routing TCP/IP Volume I,
This review is from: Routing TCP/IP Volume I (CCIE Professional Development) (Hardcover)I've just finished reading Jeff Doyle's "Routing TCP/IP Volume I" book and feel confident that I can now pass the CCIE lab in the near future. His presentation of TCP/IP IGP routing protocols is very clear and concise, with a perspective and insight into internetworking which is rarely encountered. This edition combines introductory, historical, conceptual and practical materials, and RFC's, with a first rate writing ability into one scintillating package.
The chapter on OSPF was particularly satisfying going into the depth where the next step would be research into the protocol. Having said that there is a very pragmatic side to this book including configuration examples within the text as well as configuration and troubleshooting exercises and review questions at the end of the relevant chapters.
By leaving nothing on IGP's out and all the while remaining emminently readable, this book marks a very welcome and refreshing addition to the internetworking... Read more

The Best Networking Ref I've Seen!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Routing TCP/IP Volume I (CCIE Professional Development) (Hardcover)As an CCIE, I found this book is very informative and very accurate. It disects the details of the routing protocol, including IS-IS. How many books out there do you see that talk about IS-IS? If you want to gain basic and advance about default route, static routing, IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF, ISIS, this is the bible for you. With Sam Halibi's book and this book, you will probably solidfy your preparation for CCIE lab test. Of course, with lots and lost of hands on practice. But you need these two books for practicing! Good luck!
p.s. I just wished I had these books when I was studying for my CCIE. It would save me lots of time!!!!!

This book is the HOLY man's BIBLE..You must GET it...!,
This review is from: Routing TCP/IP Volume I (CCIE Professional Development) (Hardcover)What this book did for me was strengthen my knowledge and understanding about network routing protocols. I've been searching for a book such as this one, with such detailed information about routing metrics, EIGRP DUAL, OSPF/RIP router redistribution, etc... Now when I go on interviews, I'm more confident than every before. There are a certain number of books that I call the BIBLE which means never go to work without them,(#1-Doug Comer TCP/IP Volume-1, #2-Mark Miller Troubleshooting TCP/IP, #3-Kennedy Clark & kevin Hamilton Cisco Lan Switching,) just to name a few, and now added to that list is Jeff Doyle's Routing TCP/IP Volume-1.
What is Jeff Doyles email address, the one listed does not work.
Routing TCP/IP, Volume I
Reviewer Name: Rich Hill, Network Project Leader
I am reviewing Routing TCP/IP, Volume I, part of the CCIE Professional Development Series from Cisco Press. This book is widely regarded as part of the "Holy Trinity" of CCIE preparatory books. In addition to CCIE prep, it is also highly valued as an essential desk reference for anyone pursuing a career as a senior-level routing engineer. The author, Jeff Doyle, having written the two most recognized tomes on IP Routing, is a respected authority on the topic. His writing style is very clear and not at all difficult to read, which sets him apart from a lot of the authors in the "high-end routing book" category.
The book is part of a set of two books. Volume I contains coverage of the major interior routing protocols (RIP, IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF & ISIS) and follows it with coverage of route redistribution, filtering and mapping. Volume II covers the BGP exterior gateway protocol and follows it with coverage of advanced IP routing issues. As someone who's come up through the CCNA-to-CCNP-to-CCIE-candidate path, I recognized all of the topics from the BSCI curriculum. All this book really does is take them to another level of depth. I highly recommend this path of coming at the CCIE, because unless you've done it all and seen it all, there's way too much information to take in during a single reading. Reading the BSCI book first gets you familiar with all of the topics, so that you're not overwhelmed when reading the Doyle books.
While many pan this book as being outdated since it was written in 1998, my contention is that all of the covered topics are still fair game for the CCIE qualifying written exam and the book still retains all of its original value. There are a lot of topics that are on the test that are not in Doyle's books, but if you look at the CCIE blueprint, the topics covered in the books map exactly to the topics in the IP Routing & IP Multicast sections of the blueprint. You can't treat any book as being a one-stop shop for CCIE preparation. That's impossible. The book would be the size of my desk. I would actually contend that, on the next rewrite, the two-volume should be broken into three volumes, one for the interior protocols, one for BGP by itself, and one for all of the advanced routing issues and multicast. This would make the volumes a bit less daunting and also somewhat easier to carry.
But, carry-ability issues aside, this is a very good book. It takes all of the topics to the degree of depth which you would expect for a CCIE-level book and explains things in a way that doesn't lose the reader. I had to work to keep the examples straight in my head, but no one said becoming a CCIE was easy. On the downside, the book contains no disc. This is unfortunate, because I always like to have the book on PDF. Also, it would be nice to have the review questions and answers put into a question bank. The book is also missing the "Do I Know This Already?" section for each chapter, which is present in all of Cisco Press' certification guides. I realize that this is probably due to the fact that this is more of a desk reference / learning book than an official certification guide. However, as someone who's studying for an exam, I always like as many free practice questions as I can get.
I give Routing TCP/IP, Volume I a 5 on my 5-ping rating scale and look forward to reading Volume II!!!!!
(NOTE: Each chapter concludes with one or more of the following: Looking Ahead, Recommended Reading, Review Questions, Summary Table, Configuration Exercises, and Troubleshooting Exercises.)
I. ROUTING BASICS.
II. INTERIOR ROUTING PROTOCOLS.
III. ROUTE CONTROL AND INTEROPERABILITY.
