In response to numerous posts lately asking what resources to use for this certification, I thought I would bring together the usual responses from forum members. Maybe it could be stickied at the top of the certification forum for future starters to go through first.

These are just the usual books, etc that people have responded with before and by no means exhaustive. Please feel free to add any other resources that you think proved useful that are not on the list.

Usual books used
CCNA Study Guide – Todd Lammle

Cisco Press
CCNA Intro/ICND Study Guide – Wendell Odom
CCNA Certification Guide -
Network Consultant’s Handbook – Mathew Castelli
Cisco CCNA Academy Programme Books - Semesters 1+2 and 3+4

Prentice Hall
Computer Networks 4th Edition – Andrew Tanenbaum

Cisco IOS Access Lists – Jeff Sedayao

Online Information
Google Searches’s Networking Menu - CCNA Prep Center & various white papers
Many many others - remember google

Hands On Training
Get yourself a job in networking’s New Cisco Lab
Bosun CCNP Network Simulator (has CCNA NetSim built in)
Buy cheap networking equipment and set up your own network
Subnet Calculators

Practice Questions – Revision Aids
Braindumps – Cram your way to the CCNA certification? - Don’t waste your time. You may get your cert but once your on the job you won’t have a clue what your doing. You won’t last long on the job and you will devalue the certification for everyone else. ** Use them as a revision aid only **

Many Many More........

Hope this list helps and good luck in your study.
