Check out https://www.cybrary.it/ (I don't work for them, but free IT courses are always good) they offer free online courses including Net+, A+, Linux+ etc. I used them along with Cisco Packet Tracer Student 6.2 (update includes Firewalls) and Mike Meyers Net+ Book (https://www.amazon.co.uk/CompTIA-Network-Guide-Sixth-N10-006/dp/0071848223/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1464523124&sr=8-1&keywords=Network%2B)
If you passed the CCENT, I think it's a waste to do the Net+. They potentially cover the same topics.
Good luck on the endeavours in any event.
