After speaking with my boss yesterday, I've decided to drop my MCSE ambitions for now, and work non-stop on CISCO as soon as I finish my A+. My ultimate ambition is to go for CCIE. I'm doing a lot of reading on the CCIE track and pretty much every other Cisco cert. The only thing I'm not sure of is, if work will pay for is the lab to practice in. So what all hardware should I have for a CCNA/CCNP practice lab? And where is a good place to purchase cheap cisco equipment to build a lab with? I live in the u.s., so preferably a place local to that so that shipping doesn't kill me.
