I would like to start learning Cisco routers so that I can get my CCNA.
What router(s) should I buy to practice with?  I hav eread about 2501 and 2503.  I found what i think is a deal on a 2507 which the seller says is better.

Also what are some good books to use for the test and home lab?

thanks
