Just Passed SNAA. Now What?

    I just passed the Cisco SNAA exam and have earned the ASA Specialist certification. In addition, I'm half way to my CCSP. There was so little new material on the syllabus that Cisco could've just added 6 or so questions to the SNAF exam to cover it. But then they wouldn't have gotten my $150, so I guess that explains that.

    I was thinking of taking the rest of the summer off from studying, but the exam topics are what I primarily do at work at present so it seems a waste not to take advantage of the fact that I can basically do my "lab work" at work. I also find the material interesting and, let's face it, fun. What to do?

    I was able to find a cheap copy of the out of print IPS exam guide and it just arrived the other day. Even though it was published in 2005, the material is still useful for study. Ideally I'd like to have something a little newer. Unfortunatly, Cisco isn't publishing any new books for CCSP because "the technology changes too fast". What they really mean is "we want you to pay $3000+ for training through one of our learning partners".

    For SNRS it looks like I'll be able to re-use my CCNA:Security book for some of the domains at least. Any suggestions for other material?
