Mikal I would really consider hard before going down the cisco route, I first passed about seven years ago and to be perfectly honest the industry is on its arse. There are loads of qualified guys out there fighting for a handful of jobs, companies are taking CCNP bods over CCNA, plus rates have been driven down. Sorry for being all doom and gloom but as Iím sure you know most industries are having a hard time at the moment.

Thats the same situation in just about every industry. Despite the fact that the OPs post is almost exactly a year old, he should do his CCNA and then do his CCNP later.....perhaps after doing CCNA security etc. Its a way better thing to do then MCSE and then become a helpdesk wallah, or not doing it and working in McDonalds for the rest of his life.

Sorry mate, I missed your post. I have now joined the majority of my ex-students contracting and away from Cisco Instruction.
However if you are anywhere near Kabul drop buy and I'll give you all the training materials you'll ever need.
Reference the course in the post above, if not too late give it a miss.
CCNA: Cisco Certified Network Associate Study Guide (640-802): Exam 640-802. (640-802): Amazon.co.uk: Todd Lammle: 9780470901076: Books
If you can afford it buy yourself a cheap home lab off e-bay.
3 x 2600 series routers, preferably 2600xm series models, but not essential. 2621s are good as they have dual FE ports.
3 x 2950 series switches.
don't fancy a home lab, search for Cisco Packet Tracer or GNS3, I'd suggest Packet Tracer to start.

Cabana, further to fatboys post, where abouts in the UK are you?There is no question so obviously stupid that it prevents one supposedly intelligent human from asking it of another.
Likewise, there is no human problem that cannot be solved by the correct application of the appropriate quantity of high explosive, the suitable quantity being derived by the Formula P, where P = "plenty"
