These are the books I am planning on reading:

Most of these I will read cover to cover and some I will only read parts of. I will do no labs for now. The second time over I will go with the blueprint. Read one section at a time in books, read in DocCD and configuration guides, do labs, maybe watch some videos. This will take a lot of time but should give me a good foundation to stand on. This means I will probably not take the written before getting relatively close to the lab exam.

    • Internetworking with TCP/IP: Principles, Protocols and Architecture v.1 by Douglas E. Comer
    • TCP/IP Illustrated: Protocols v. 1: The Protocols by W. Richard Stevens
