All the new study guides include e-simulators to help candidates prepare for the operational, hands-on nature of the new exam. That said, the Cisco Press and Todd Lammle Sybex Study Guides get the best marks from those who've already prepped for the exam. If you buy a Cisco Press book, make sure you obtain the latest printing (printing 3 or higher) or contact the publisher to request that they send you the updated simulator CDs and practice tests.
Good luck with your exam preparation.
