    I would recomend spending the money to buy a couple used Cisco 2500 routers. They can be had cheap on ebay, then you can alway resell them on ebay afterward.

    I'm with mikefalcone on this

    Theres a few different ways to do CCNA but cheap routers, good material and hands on practice is the best option IMO.  Remember that CCNA for most people is the springboard to start into the Cisco path and a good grounding of the fundamentals is essential.  Physically working with cheap equipment setting yourself certain tasks to complete and seeing them come to fruition is a great way to learn.  On the other end of the scale theres too many people doing them CCNA bootcamps forking out a couple of grand for 5 days intensive training - half of which they will have forgotton in 3 weeks.
    Do it right and it will stand to you

    good luck
