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.

I second that - the routersim network visualiser is brilliant :)
The other option is Dynamips/Dynagen.....

Dynamips is a great solution.
