Service Provider Question
Happy Easter everyone! I have a question about taking the CCNA service provider exam. Right now I work for a major service provider as an installer out in the field. I'm looking to transition into an engineering role within my company hopefully. I got my net plus certification back in March and am now studying for my CCNA R&S. Would it benefit me to study for and take the service provider CCNA exam only or to take the CCNA R&S exam and then take the CCNA SP exam? Also, I'm a fan of live equipment and have some Cisco lab devices right now. Since my company typically works with the Cisco 7600 series how can I practice working with those devices? I'm imagining that buying that kind of lab equipment would be very expensive so is there any lab simulators for the 700 series? Thanks guys.
