Wendell Odem Thrid Edition Questions and concerns.

I plan to sit for the CCENT or ICND1 in April. I took the CCNA exam and failed eariler this month and decided to do the two test route. Anyway, I have the Third Edtion Cert Libary and I have installed both CD's on my Laptop and spend 2 hours every few days going over the questions. My main concern is that the questions on the CD so far have been multiple choice and nothing else. Plus I have to spend an Extra 50 bucks to down load the full version of Network Simulator if I want to the labs.

I was wondering from those folks who have bought the Boston CCENT or CCNA practice Exams how they compare with Odem's exams ? For Instance, From what I have read on this board it sounds like the Boston Exam has Multiple Choice question, Simlet ( drag and drop questions ) CLI sims ( Command line Interface ) questions just like the real exam. The Boston CCNA 640-802 is $279 bucks and I am am looking to see if U need to drop that kind of money.For CLI stuff I have Packet Tracker and I love youtube.

So in closeing I would love for anyone who has used the both Odems materials and Boston Exam material to give me there thoughts on which is a better stdy resourse.

Thanks in advance

    This may be a silly question, but have you read the book? Personally, practice tests can be useless if you haven't learned the material.

    Two hours on the test everyday is overkill. At this point you have probably memorized all of the answers.

    How about you try some different test and do some labs?

    Boson practice exams is highly recommended around here.
