Good afternoon netpros!

I have had a request from my manager to teach a couple of co-workers the CCNA material.

We are a cisco partner so can get equipment on Not for resale deals quite cheaply.

I have looked for "CCNA" lab suggestions and they appear to be CCNA labs "on a budget" on old equipment.

As we will be buying the equipment shortly, what new hardware would you recommend?

I would only need to be teaching 2 people so the one lab would do.

Also, but i'm not holding my breath about this one, is it possible to get a hold of the CCNA teaching materials? When I did my CCNA at a netacademy there were brilliant slide shows and presentations along with a Lab book.

I can probably find my old lab book but I think CCNA has been updated since mine was published and I'd much rather teach the new course.

Has anyone done anything similar to this and what approach did you take?

Hi David,

I saw this posted by Andy a couple of months ago and thought about what a great thing this was :)

From the author of the CiscoPress CCNA Study Guides Wendell Odom (all sorts of invaluable info on building a CCNA lab);


Hope this helps! And best of luck with your new role,


PS: I would look into CBT Nuggets for some excellent video info for the CCNA Track.
