Yes CCIE2b,

I am just going through "BGP Design and Implemetation". The book
approach is Case-Study based and there are lot of configs examples all
over. I still feel it is a OVERKILL for CCIE Lab though. But no doubt
its worth the investment if you want hands-on approach to BGP.

Hi Ahmed,

I think you mean "Edition 2" ather than "Volume 2" , correct?  Assuming
you do, I'll share withyou what I did.  Shortly after the 2nd Edition
came out, I too, wondered if I should spend the money to add this new
edition to my library of Cisco books.  I went to Barnes and Noble with
the 1st edition of the book and sat for several hours and compared the 2
editions.  I don't recall all the differences I found but the 2
differences I can remember were
these:

1) The 2nd edition included info on prefix lists
2) The 2nd edition included info on Outbound Route Filters.

While there may have been some other minor differences, my overall
conclusion was that the 2nd edition didn't include enough new info to
make the investment worthwhile and so I didn't purchase the 2nd edition.
In addition, I found on cisco's web site all the info I needed on these
2 features.

That being said, there's a new BGP book from Cisco Press that just came
out. I downloaded the free chapter from Cisco Press' web site and was
impressed. I have since ordered the book but I won't get it until around
mid January. My guess is that this new BGP contains alot more info on
the new features of BGP.  In just that one chapter I learned about
features I previously I no idea about.

I suspect that if you willing to spend some more money on BGP, this new
book would probably a better investment.

HTH, dt

> Hi Folks, Does anyone know the major differences between Volume I and
Volume II of  Halabi's Internet Routing Architecture Bible.  I already
have Volume I, and not sure if I should buy Volume II for my BGP
preparation. BTW, Thanks everyone for helping me out with what vendor to
go with IPexpert vs Hello Computers.  NONE.  The majority of the votes
have gone to "Internetworexpert", and that will be my choice as well.
Thanks,
