    Hi Folks,

    Could you please let me know if you believe the listed below is a good value for £180 including delivery?
    I would like this to learn IOS, complete lab exercises and eventually pass my CCNA.
    Apologies, I have never purchases any Cisco kit before (except for a small 877 router).
    Many thanks for your advice in advance.

    You will have to excuse me as I haven't studied for the CCNA yet but I would email the seller and research if this kit is sufficient to help pass the CCNA as it stands today.
    Looking at the kit those are all slightly old kit but that's fine for a home lab. You've got two routers, three distribution switches and an access switch. I'd check but I don't see why you'd need three 3550s so you could save having one, maybe two and stack them, would imagine that's in the exam but haven't checked.
    Apart from that looks like a good starter for ten and you can't beat getting hands on with the added safety of being able to trash it all in your own lab

    Thanks, I think the seller putting this kit together mentions the 3550s have layer 3 and can be used if you decide to move onto the CCNP. Also, 3 switches covers most CCNA lab scenarios. I might get one more router though.
