Odom vs Lammle + CCNA simulators

Unanswered Question
Apr 14th, 2010

I posted this question in Certifications, but I thought it's more to do with Training so I'd post it in here too. Sorry for the re-post.

I'm looking to get my CCNA this year (and hopefully get started on CCNP). There's two textbooks I'm looking at - Odom's Cisco Press book and Lammle's CCNA book. Both come highly recommended and I think I could get the boss to pay for both.

But each of these books also come in a bundle pack with simulator software. The boss might pay for one simulator version but not both, so my question is: does anyone have an opinion as to who makes the better software/lab questions?

Here are the books and bundles I'm referring to, with prices:

Odom standalone: http://bookware.com.au/cgi-bin/bookware/1587201836

Odom bundled: http://bookware.com.au/cgi-bin/bookware/9781587203541

Lammle standalone: http://bookware.com.au/cgi-bin/bookware/0470110082

Lammle bundled: http://bookware.com.au/cgi-bin/bookware/0470110090

I have this problem too.

Hi,

Lammle's Sybex book is good compare to others and for simulation what i would suggest GSN3 which will give the actual original router interface as if like working on original router or  Odom's simulator. It has around  200 labs configuring, implementing, and troubleshooting network designs.

Hope to Help !!
