    Well after a few weeks loafing around after sitting the 70-622 I have decided to start the CCENT.

    I'm using This book. Surplus to requirements from the training department at work.

    One of the networking guys has offered to lend me a router and switch from his home lab (he self studied CCNA and CCNP)and I can borrow a few cables from work.

    On top of this, work will cough up for the exam!

    Talk about budget certification! cost to me so far £0 :biggrin The price is right!

    If you're after another book for some reason, Sybex's book is very well written imho.

    Nice, good book selection. Not to mention free is the best price. Good luck on your studies!

    Yes, the ones authored by Todd Lammle are generally well regarded.

    Do any of you UK folks use the WIC Adsl cards? I'd like to get one and use it with my lab. LINK

    Cheers Guys. Cool, I guess a few of us are studying the CCENT/CCNA at the moment!

    Thanks for the recommendations if I need another book I will look at the sybex one, although this may mean parting with some cash:eek: we will see how stuck I get.

    Its only concentrating on TCP/Ip and networking basics at the moment.
