Suggested Reading
This appendix provides a list of supplemental and background reading. All the references listed here are excellent resources. The nature of the information is diverse; some of the books, for example, are tomes of wisdom, good reference guides about command syntax, or a consideration of a very specialized problem that you might encounter. The list is broken up into general topic areas and further divided by information type—books, web sites, and, where possible, standards documents.

NOTE If a web page is not accessible, the specific location might have changed. If this happens, use a search engine to hunt down the new location. Many of the web references are to the Cisco site, so finding an updated URL, if necessary, should not prove too problematic.
