    hie everyone,
    l've just started my CCNA a couple of weeks ago and l need to find out a few things regarding home labs.

    -why do you need a home lab?
    -where can l find one if needed?
    -how can l use a home lab if already connected to the internet and what are the benefits of having one

    any help will be greatly appreciated

    While I haven't done CCNA I can say with a fair certainty that you haven't a prayer of passing unless you have actualy worked on Cisco kit.

    Hence the idea of a home lab - it consists of various bits of Cisco kit so you can try connecting stuff up and watching it break! :biggrin

    You need hands-on experience on Cisco devices (or, at the very least, a simulator) before taking the exam. To be quite honest, you need real-world experience before taking the exam, but that's just my personal opinion.

    Best of luck!
