    Accepted Solution

    While working on real hardware helps the most if it is not an option then I would recommend RouterSim fo your CCNA studies. In addition you may want to look in to some CBT's.

    Dynamips is a great solution.

    Here is a GUI interface that works well; you just need access to some IOS images.
