    That's what I am doing. The only scenario that I haven't figured out how to depict in a lab is a multipoint frame relay network and I'm pretty sure even that is possible with some tweaking.

    Yes, everything is available through Packet Tracer. Check GNS3 if you want more advanced features.

    I studied and passed my CCNA just fine by only using Packet Tracer.

    Packet Tracer will get you by for ccent. Moving forward I suggest using GNS3 and if you can, use real hardware.
