CCNA Composite Packet Tracer LAB ?

Hey, TE Members

I would like to find out any packet tracer labs that I can work on which would be able to cover the entire scope of the CCNA?

I was hoping something like a giant lab that encompases everything, I was just curious if anybody came across anything like that before.

Thank You,

    When I prepared for the CCNA, I used packet tracer to follow along with the CTB nuggets videos. Their videos game me a better understanding of how to create simple networks from the ground up. I started with just a router, switch, 2 computers, and the appropriate cabling. I create simple RIP routes on the router that correlated to 2 VLANs on the switch and place one computer in each VLAN. I performed a traceroute from one computer to the other and watch in Command Prompt to see all the hops that were taken to reach the destination. Once I became more comfortable creating my own networks, I started expanding and doing more complex labs in Packet Tracer with multiple switches using VTP and multiple routers using point-to-point links over RIP. How long have you been studying?

    Well, within three months I read both ICND1 and ICND2, however I had some undergrad courses that was a Cisco Net Academy went through all the courses, but never pursuit the Cisco Exam. So I would say i'm somewhat familiar, but I have much to learn.

    After reading both books cover to cover, I recently signed up for CBT Nuggets. I went through have the videos on ICND1 it's a bit slow compared to the book, but it's filling in alot of gaps along the way, concepts that i have missed or were not fully comprehending.

    I did however designed a lab that consisted of 12 routers running RIP and multiple VLANs followed by trunking and even implemented DHCP and tried to implement a DHCP pool using the relay option, but that aspect didn't work. I was hoping for like a lab that would be like overkill that encompasses everything within the CCNA and it instructed you to build and configure in said way.

    Thank You.

    It might be difficult to find a lab that encompasses every single thing in one, but I reviewed all the labs I saved (several hundred) from my recent Netacad experience and I did find some Skills Assessment Labs that involve configuring WANS, DHCP, SSH, NAT, VLANS & Trunking, routing protocols, static routing, port security, ACLs. Quite a bit of stuff in one lab.

    If you have Todd Lammle's book, he offers over 80 Packet Tracer Labs.
