any word if wendell will be doing a v5 book, and if so, when will it be available?
Hello Arteq and all,
I heard you were asking about a new edition of the CCIE R/S written cert guide! First, I had to make sure I could speak about it. Most of the time, whatever I’m working on is under NDA until long after my part of the work is done.
Anyway, a new edition is on the way, but I’m not involved. My schedule just didn’t work out to do the work, so I am officially out of the loop on the book.
As for the book itself, I just spoke with Brett Bartow, Cisco Press Executive Editor who’s working the book, and the current schedule shows the book available by Cisco Live in San Fran, early May. Note that any book avilability date that’s 6 months out is tentative – probably means the manuscript is just wrapping up, with some edit passes left, and much production work remaining. The book is in good hands, but I’ll leave the announcement details to Cisco Press. If I see anything interesting that doesn’t get posted over to this group, I’ll pop over and add it.
Bruno’s already posted a list of all the new Cisco Press titles related to the new CCIE R/S blueprint here, with the current estimated dates. https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/thread/64182
I’m looking forward to seeing how the new book turns out!
