    Hi everyone, I have just started reading for my CCNA cert. I am totally new to all this stuff and I was wondering if someone out there can give me advice on the cheapest way to construct a lab that will help me pass the CCNA exam.

    Hope some one can help.

    Or even try renting one off the net, i know theres nothing like having it in your hands and playing with it, but its an option.

    i used things like 2500's because they were cheap, and a simple 2800 or 2900 switch.

    This was plenty for me and took me into my CCNP too, use things like simulations as often as you can too, they too can be a valuable asset.

    Boson creates simulators. The books by Wendell Odom (Cisco Press) have a copy of the program on CD in the book.
    They will get you going.

    You do realise they are US based and it costs a fortune to get them shipped over here.

    Best bet is to go on ebay and look for a an ebayer called irp70, very good guy to deal with, fast delivery and cheap prices.
