Learning Cisco

Hi all

I am starting to learn Cisco networking and I have the following kit:

Cisco 2500 series router
Cisco ASA 5505

Does anyone have recommendations of where to start? I have completed the comptia N+ so pretty much have the most basic level of networking skill.

Thank you in advance.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Personally I've been studying for the CCNA and I've really enjoyed CBTNuggets Cisco videos. http://www.cbtnuggets.com/it-training-videos/cisco

They are informative and not boring like a lot of videos you find. I'm sure there are others, but my experience lies here.

Thanks guys. Would you recommend the kit I have is acceptable?
just get yourself a couple of cisco 2950 switches, and 1 more 2501 router and you should be good to start. pick yourself up a ccna book from amazon too.
