    I second the Sybex CCNA book by Todd Lammle. Get the edition with router simulation, prep exam, and flash cards. It also comes with the entire book in PDF format. This is a well written book IMO. The router simulation is key if you won't have a chance to actually use cisco routers/switches. I was only able to use cisco routers/switches for about a total of 3 hours in school, all my other education has been based on routersim. Goodluck.

    I third the Sybex CCNA book by Todd Lammle. The flash cards will really show you if you're ready for the exam. In the first cd that comes with this book if you look in the cd you'll find a folder called CertSim. In this folder there is a great test engine that is very much like the real 640-801 except it is a lot more easier. It even has simulator questions! It's just a demo though. Also when studying for the exam I used Cisco Press CCNA network simulator. This simulator is kind of buggie. Like when using OSPF, ISL, 802.1Q and some others. It still helped me pass the exam. I think the best thing to get is a cheap 2500 series router off of ebay. Just make sure its not running some old IOS like 11.1.
