    I read the post from 6 months ago "CCNA Labs: Simulator, Emulator, or Physical Kit?" I don't have room and really can't afford to buy equipment so It seems to me that my best bet would be a Simulator. I don't really have any experience configuring Routers or Switches. The amount of Simulators out there is quite Overwhelming. The prices vary and haven't seen any free ones. Anyone have a good experience with a particular product out there that isn't to expensive? I was hoping ITPro had a virtual lab to go along with the CCENT class.

    I passed my Network+ thanks to you guys and I am now on to CCENT. You guys have a CCENT class and then a CCNA class. Am I right to assume if I go through the CCENT class I should be ready for the ICND 100-101 test and then do the CCNA class and I'll will be ready for the ICND2 200-101 test? With additional study of coarse. Is that how you have it broken up? Also are these tests expiring soon. It looks like they have been available since 2013.

    Thanks,

    Pat

    I have been studing for the net+ n10-005 test for about 2 months. I have read 2 books on it and have watched all the itpro episodes. I have taken several of the free practice tests online and have done well, high 80s. I just took the measure net+ practice test and only got a 76, I found it to be difficult. My confidence was high and now it is a little shaken, especially sine I'm taking the real test on saturday. Did anyone have the same experience with the measureup tests? Did anyone have difficulty and then score well on the real test?

    Thanks,

    Pat

    Anyone know the best site to get a discount on the test? The best I have been able to find is 10% off? Has anyone done better.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for reply Ronnie.

    I looked on Comptia's site and it lists the N10-005 exam as being retired on 8\31\2015 (English version). All other languages retires on 12\31\15. This being the case part of me feels I should get the latest greatest exam instead of the older N10-005. I'm just nervous if I get the N10-005 and put that on my resume it could be frowned upon. I have been a Desktop Support Tech for 15yrs and I'm trying to move up to Network Tech\Admin by looking for another job and that's why I'm getting the cert. to juice up my resume a bit. If I got the 005 cert I wouldn't move up to the 006, I would go straight to the CCNA exam. It just seems like if your gonna spend the money, get the newest cert, but if you believe it doesn't matter all that much at this point, I'll stay the coarse. I'm just on the fence and not sure what benefits me. Appreciate you advice.

    Thanks,

    Pat

    Hello,

    I have been studying for the Net+10-005 exam for a month or so. Bought an N10-005 exam cram book. I just signed up for ITpro and realized there is now a N10-006 exam. I hope I didn't was my time studying for an old test. Plan on taking the test in June and I know I should take the most recent exam. Can I still study from the N10-005 book and watch the itpro N10-005 videos + the N10-006 videos and be O.k. for the test? Also I noticed the N10-006 only has about 6 itpro shows, is this still in production or is that all off them? Thanks in advance.

    Is there a practical part of the A+ exam? ie: they give you a command prompt and you have to type in several different commands?
    Thanks,
