Yes, Todd Lammle is out of date.

The guy goes so deep into analogies that I think he forgets to describe the point of the topic, and it is described very lightly. Wendel Odom writes some of the most in depth books I have seen on the subject and I recommend his works.

Since you are moving away from the CCNA and going to the CCNP, drop Todd Lammle and pick up Wendel Odom.

I recommend caution regarding Amir Ranjbar's book on the ONT. It is a little light in content.

The ONT exam has only been available in 2007 and this exam guide was released in May of this year. I am not aware of any other books for the ONT exam at this time so this book is braving the frontier of being a single book to pass a single exam.

Amir Ranjbar's previous book was a Cisco press exam guide for the CIT (Cisco Internetwork Troubleshooting) exam, the toughest of the former CCNP test series. While other exam guides from Cisco press usually are often 400 -

500 pages in length, Amir wrapped up the all-encompassing troubleshooting test in about 300 pages. His recent book, the ONT exam guide, is also about 300 pages.
