    Many of the simulator exams dont have a specified ios version, it just allows only commands needed to complete the question but if i was to guess on a ios version close enough to the real exams then i'd go with 12.2(15) ipbase at least, since that release changed several of the common commands, but i could be wrong.

    currently, Cisco is using 12.4 adv ent svc on the CCIE R&S lab exams. was 12.3 mainline but the 2621 and 3640's were removed Nov 13th, this year according to Cisco site.

    Since most 2600's and 2500's for sure wont run 12.4, i'd stick to 12.3 if possible.

    For the CCNA exams I don't think that the IOS version matters very much, so long as you're using at least 12.0 or higher. You may want to learn the various ways of creating VLANs on a 2950 switch however, because there are several ways and the VLAN Database method is being phased out, but isn't gone yet.
