I am trying to teach myself Cisco. I have taken a small class offered by the Navy that was very entry level. What I need now is to get CCNA by the end of the year. It's a personal goal. The local college offes classes, but will not fit within the time frame. I could go to the Boot Camps, but the overall cost with pre-reqs is over $8000. That is way too much for me to spend for this. I have looked at the Bryant Advantage and it seems there is a lot of good study material from them. I've also read the forums and a lot of people recommend getting a CCNA kit that has routers and switches. What would be the best configuration for this? I am willing to spend the money that I need to, but don't want to get fleeced for these boot camps. Also, what books would be the best to study from. I'd really like to avoid the books that take a team of powerlifters to deliver them to my house. I appreciate any advice that is given. Thanks.
