Any suggestions for CCNA/study resouce?
Hi, I'm looking to take the CCNA certification, and wonder if anyone here has any input on good study resources(free or paid). It doesn't matter, I am looking for something with a "hands on learning" approach with simulators, or actual routers/network setups along with a textbook learning style. Something online and similar to the Cisco Network Academy would be ideal(like using their learning module/simulator approach).
I did the Cisco Network Academy program about a couple years ago in high school and regret not obtaining the certification. I am majoring in CS and will probably find it at a university later, but I kind of need to study now for it as I'm required employment reasons. I have seen textbooks on amazon with network simulators(which I figure are simple ISO programming, but nothing like Cisco Network Academy) and probably will go this route, but before I do I thought maybe some here with a little more experience in the field might have a better recommendation. IAny suggestions on this matter would be greatly appreciated?
Thanks for response
