    Hi guys,

    I think the thread title sums it up. Passed ITIL Foundation with a score of 31, not great but could have been far better.

    Before coming on here I had already signed up with a training provider, what a mistake this was! I wish I had found this forum sooner. I'm not going to mention them, I felt they didn't really offer much more than I could have found in a book. I paid £360. We all learn lessons!

    CCENT - Self study is next, I've purchased CBT Nuggets videos and several books. Toying with the idea of purchasing a lab however I'm wary. I see many on EBay. Would one of these do the job?

    Generally yes, however some items are very slow to boot, so if you buy a cheap lab, it may well drive you insane waiting on boot times.

    You can also use packet tracer. You could exclusively use Packet tracer in fact, however nothing really beats hands on training. So still would recommend you get some hardware.

    Also they are always doing sales on Udemy of Chris Bryant's CCNA courses etc for a few pounds (Think I paid £15 and got the CCNA Security free), possibly worth a look as another resource.

    If you do get a lab, then I would suggest you try and at least get 1800 series for your routers, stay clear of the 2600's if you can, as again, they are very slow and may drive you to tears.

    Well done on the ITIL, and good luck on your CCENT.

    Well done the ITIL F exam is definitely a dry exam.

    I am a big advocate of hands on labs myself.

    Cheers guys, I'm definitely going to be purchasing a lab.

    Also thanks for the tips on "Chris Bryant's CCNA" videos. I hadn't heard of him. Some brilliant reviews.

    He has one or two free videos up there if you want to check them out, just to see his style etc. See what you think. The information might be a bit advanced so you might not understand that so much but will get a feel for him.
