Greetings folks! Haven't posted in a long while but great to be back!

I just ordered Odoms new CCNA study guide for the new exams but I am wondering if packet tracer will be sufficient for labs. If need be, I could get the old Cisco gear out of the closet (2x 2811, 1x 1841, 3x 2960).

2020 will be the year I get my second IT certification...hopefully.

Certification Goals 2020: CCNA, Security+

    Same here, I have Odom's Vol. 1 for the 200-301. So far I've been able to get by with packet tracer with the concepts presented. Most of it is the same from his previous book. I know there's a wireless section that I've yet to read, so not exactly sure how that's gonna go. I want to expand my hardware but right now I only have a 3750 switch but I'm never home long enough to actually study, so packet tracer and netsim will have to do for now.
