Regardless of which technology you are working on to certify your skills it is always benefitial to have atleast a limited time demo of the software. In this case purchasing switches or routers for the test was a little pricey as the class and study materials were expensive enough.
This CCNA exam was designed for entry level cisco router and switch operation and this CD does just that. It resembles a typing tutor more so than anything else but asks you to do certain things, whether it be configure an IP address for a particular interface or simply create a secret password.
In short, it will allow you to become familiar with the key commands you'll need for the exam and that is all it will do.
If you have the money to buy the actual hardware that is always the best solution but seldom the most practical for most users.
Good study tool combined with the exam notes and the CBT Nuggets training cd's. Can't go wrong.

Covers what you need for the exam!
This software covers all the hands-on labs required to pass the 640-607 exam. I used it to prepare for the exam and cruised through the simulations questions. If you need flexibility in what you can create in terms of topology then get something else.

CCNA(R) Router and Switch eSIM
The main reason I obtained the product was because purchasing 5 routers and three switches was out of the question. The three simulated network scenarios were a good way to get "seat time." The simulation scenarios do have some bugs and some limitations. I was very pleasantly surprised with the 120 e-Lab activities, 200 CCNA flashcard questions, and especially the video lessons on CD2. CD2 was worth the price of the product. In addition to this simulation software, I used Odom's CCNA Cert Guide (2nd Ed). OBTW...I passed the test with a 978.
