taqreeb at-tahdeeb of ibn Hajr (online) was created by bint mukhtar
Brother Moosa often refers to the book taqreeb at-tahdeeb by ibn Hajr al-asqalani. The book can be downloaded from the following link:

Taqreeb at-tahdeeb: http://www.sahab.net/home/index.php?site=book&book_id=313

Ibn Hajr has a larger book called tahdeeb at-tahdeeb (12 volumes). This can also be downloaded from the same place.

Tahdeeb at-tahdeeb is much more detailed than taqreeb as it mentions the biographies of the narrators including whom they narrated from and who narrated from them.

For those of us in infant stages of arabic look out for where it says "rawaa 'an" this means he narrated from, and the names that follow are whom he took from, and then "yarwee 'anhu" and those who follow are who took from him (the narrator). Wallaahu 'alam.

Hopefully brother Moosa can offer us better guidelines and offer us some opportunities to use these books.

Quick points: (the last two books are the ones being discussed here, the ones before it being necessary to know about so as to understand the importance of these two...)

"al-Kamaal fee Asmaa' ar-Rijaal" by 'Abdul-Ghanee ibn 'Abdil-Waahid al-Maqdisee (d.600), the author or "'Umdat al-Ahkaam" - comprehensive and exhaustive mention of the narrators found in the six major books of ḥadīth (Bukhārī, Muslim, Tirmithee, Abū Dāwūd, Ibn Maajah, and Nasaa'ee), mentioning many ḥadīths under each biography, lists of teachers and students, and criticism and praise for each entry.

"Tah-theeb al-Kamaal" by al-Haaifth Abūl-Hajjaaj Yoosuf al-Mizzee (d.742) - a reworking of al-Kamaal (the first book), removing excessive amounts of ḥadīths, keeping intact all the criticism and praise, while re-ordering the lists of teachers and students to be (mostly) in alphabetical order. This reference is a very important resource for exhaustive mentions of a narrator's teachers and students.

"Tath-heeb at-Tah-theeb" (note that it is tath-heeb not tah-theeb) by Muhammad ibn Aḥmad ibn Uthmān ath-Thahabee (d.748) - an abridgment of al-Mizzee's Tah-theeb al-Kamaal.

"al-Kaashif" by ath-Thahabee as well - a quick reference to the narrators of the six books, similar to Taqreeb at-Tah-theeb (coming).

"Ikmaal Tah-theeb al-Kamaal" by Mughaltaay al-Hanafee (d.762) - an abridgment of al-Mizzee's Tah-theeb al-Kamaal, containing important additions to the statements of the imāms of jarh and ta'deel in praise and criticism of the narrators.

"Tah-theeb at-Tah-theeb" by Aḥmad ibn 'Alee ibn Muhammad, known as Ibn Hajr al-'Asqalaanee (d.852) - another abdridgment of al-Mizzee's Tah-theeb, also containing additional statements of criticism and praise in the biographies. These additions begin with his saying, "QULTU" near the end of each biography.

"Taqreeb at-Tah-theeb" by Ibn Hajr as well - an extremely brief summary of his Tah-theeb and an important quick reference to the narrators found in the six books, including precise notes on how to pronounce the name properly, his verdict on the narrator, the narrator's chronological ranking, and the date of his death (whenever possible).

Jazakallaahu khairan.
Brother Moosa, what is meant by a narrator's chronological ranking?

his tabaqah, like he's from the khaamisah, or the fifth rank chronologically - the lesser taabi'oon who only saw one or two of the Companions, like al-A'mash.

These tabaqaat (chronological rankings) are defined (all 12) in the introduction of Ibn Hajr in at=Taqreeb.
