CCNA lab 12 years 8 months ago #24653


I am preparing for CCNA(640-802) but I have not joined any training institute for that....could you please advise me as to how should I prepare for the simulations.


Re: CCNA lab 12 years 8 months ago #24672

Personally, I purchased routers and switches off of ebay, but this is because I plan on going for the CCNP and even if I don't I like to try things on real gear.

You should be able to pass the simulations if you use something like Packet Tracer or some other simulator. Now that I have taken the test I do not think I needed to purchase real gear, but it will help me in the long run.

I passed CCNA working with both Packet Tracer and Boson NetSim. I worked also for 2 weeks on real equipment. However, As skepticals said if you plan only on taking CCNA then the simulators mentioned are more than enough.
Studying CCNP...

It has been more than 3 years since I did my CCNA and I studied on real equipment. Having seen NetSim what it offers is more than enough to pass the test.
