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
