CISCO anyone?

For all you CISCO gurus out there, I have a decent knowledge of IP and am looking to get my CCNA. What’s the best cheap way to study for it? Any books you guys recommend?

the best way to study is to start using cisco equipment. lots of it.

also, you can download ‘dynamips’ which can run cisco IOS images on a PC emulator, it will emulate cisco 2600, 3600, 7200 and more.


Check out for the CCNA forums and you’ll have all of your questions answered there.

I got my CCNA simply by reading a book and taking the test. Had never configured a (real) router before. Two friends then attempted to do the same, failing just barely. The book was published by Sybex, by far the best in my opinion.
