Right now I'm gathering a list of books to read through and study to get the written exam out of the way. I figured I would read through a few of the Cisco Press books for that, starting with the certification guides. After that I plan to read the books QoS, Multicast, and IPv6. After reading those and practicing some configs, I feel I'll be ready to pass the written exam. Then the big studying begins. I have a list of about a dozen more books to read through, plus some training videos such as Wireshark, INE, and the like.
I'm curious to hear some of your CCIE experiences and advice. Book suggestions, blog links, and any other advice is welcome.
