You do work for VZ :-) You are in the right place to start your learning process.

It's been more than 5 years since I took CCNA/CCNP exams and I am not sure what the newer tests look like and hence, I can't comment on how much Cisco tests on newer features. But, if I have to guess there would be a decent amount of emphasis on newer features.

If you can you should definitely upgrade to a newer version. Is there a problem upgrading the IOS? VZ can help you if you have any problems with upgrading the image.

That's a really old code. You might want to upgrade to an image that's 12.2 or later. Of course, you need to make sure the routers have enough flash/DRAM to support the image you choose.

If you can't upgrade the image for any reason you can still use the router(s) to test most of the routing functionality and features except it mayn't support some of the newer features with the later IOS version.
