    I haven't really used my lab, as OU have something called "netlab" to do the labs on. The material was good. I think I would have been better going the full self study route on this, that way I would have done a lot better and not felt so pressured and rushed to do it.

    Its ok i just scraped through the last semester of CCNA 4, smallest semester but, u need to master the majority of it.

    Youll be fine aim to take your exam within 3 weeks now.

    Just wanted to clarify what "netlab" exactly is.
    I currently study at the college who write the study material for the OU, and all netlabs is, is a collection of routers/switches which you book time slots on through the internet (which you can attemp at breaking!!) and after you 1 hour time slot-you cant have anymore in a 24hr period the routers/switches revert to default config for the next person.
    Just my opinion but it is nothing special.Its good if you have no kit but some of the downfalls are having to book sessions and only being allowed 1 hour a day (minus 10 mins for system restore) and not getting experience cabling up.
    I personally use my own kit and when lazy just a router sim.
    I thought I would address this so no one gets any high expectations over the title "netlabs". "just like windows vista-sounds better than it actually is"!!
    cheers

    Not saying netlabs is special, just the CCNA material was ok, even though OU made a hash at times of the techincal side, just hope that they iron out the problems for the next group that take course, a lot of people were dis-illusioned with the course because of the technical faults, quite few gave up and demanded a refund.
