Since a dedicated title from Cisco Press is not yet released, following Cisco Press titles can be used as the reference for the preparations of the CCIE® Service Provider Written Exam (400-201)

Cisco Live presentations are also great resources for the preparations; you can find more details about them on the INE CCIE Service Provider v4 Kickoff classes. If you have an access INE All Access Pass you can watch those videos or attend the class live on line.

I wish all those early exam takers all the best. Those who are new to CCIE journey, I encourage them to read the post I wrote about why do I want to be  CCIE ?
