I really appreciated the overview chapters, as I managed to get a patchwork knowledge of QOS, and the follow-ups were sufficiently detailed to give solid depth of understanding. Also, don't toss the CD out, it's not just some goofy test engine for the VOIP test. It has the first edition's chapters that were cut out. If you're working toward the CCIE R&S, this is really important as the CD contains the Frame Relay Traffic Shaping chapter.
If you're doing QOS or studying for the CCIE R&S, read this cover to cover, at least twice. Good stuff all around. I also have "End-to-End QOS Network Design" as well, but haven't gotten to it yet or I'd comment on the differences.
1- If you're going to take a CCIE lab test DO NOT FORGET to check out the CD of the book just to go through some technologies pushed back onto the CD! topics like CAR and Custom queuing are very well described but not in the book! - as a reader I'd be happy to pay $20 more and get them all of them printed out somewhere in the book.
2- For some reasons (probably just to follow the 642-642 syllabus), Mr.Odom has decided to cover QoS on 29xx platforms. I was wondering if any organizations had ever used such weak access devices to implement complex QoS policies (except marking) and I wish he had covered 3550/3560/3750's instead. Still Cisco CCO is the ultimate resource for these guys.
3- All other chapters are awesome, however you'd need to learn more on some topics like voice VLAN.
