Cisco's CCIP certification is an international, vendor-neutral certification for computer support technicians. The CCIP certification proves your competency as a computer technician by measuring your skills in areas including IP routing, IP QoS, BGP, and MPLS. Cisco CCIP certified technicians are expected to have excellent customer service and communication skills to work with clients. The CCIP certification is a professional certification covering the end-to-end protocols used in large scale networks. Once the CCNA has been passed, candidates can earn their CCIP certification by passing 3 or 4 exams, depending on which route they choose.
To attain this certification tests must be passed in the areas of routing, BGP, MPLS, Quality of service and the routing exam from the CCNP track (642-901 BSCI) modified to 642-902 ROUTE.
The certification requires you to pass the following 4 exams:

This was a decent study material on Qos v2.2 that explains more then I could understand but it was very helpfull and would recommend it.Daniel Robbock
This is a very good study guide for people who want to learn the in depths of routing in general and cisco routing in particular. Protocol description is very well written going from beginner to advanced level. I recommend this to everybody who wants to make a networking careerFred williams
This kit is a must for anyone interested in more than just what routing protocols do and how to configure them. This kit gives the reader a real understanding of how IGPs function and how Cisco routers process them. After reading this you will have a real understanding of routing, far beyond just how to configure and implement routing protocols. This not only covers router configuration, but routing theory, subsystems, data structures, event processing, input processing, algorithms, and more. This is not just another guide on routing protocols! After reading this kit, you will understand routing as only a few people do.Jink Koreman
