This Super Economy CCNP Kit is designed to give you the most bang for your buck to help you pass both your CCNA and CCNP exams. So it will do two exams in one kit!
You get routers and switches that will help you get hands on experience in most of the CCNP disciplines for the ROUTE, SWITCH and TSHOOT exams. The great thing about this kit is that all of it can be used in our CCIE topology after you pass your CCNP tests! The major difference in this kit versus our Economy CCNP kit is that this kit has 2950s(you may want to consider upgrading the 2950 Standard Image switches to Enhanced Image with the 2950C model to support a few more commads as covered in our Lab Suggestions article) in place of the 2960s and a 3550 in place of the 3560. But that is ok as they will still do 95% of the concepts for the SWITCH exam. The other area it is a little light in is the Vocie and Wireless concepts in SWITCH. It is a great low end CCNP kit and will support the 80+ labs in the Cisco Academy CCNP lab workbooks!
We also allow you to tweak the kit to your liking. So here are the upgrade options available:
In regards to router upgrades here is what is available:
- The base 1760 96/32 sinlge FE router supports 12.4(25) Advanced IP Services.
- The 1841 128/32 upgrade is for a dual FE ISR router that comes with two HWIC slots and runs 12.4(24). This router can do your NAT/PAT labs and CCP. The 256/64 upgrade allows you to run IOS 15.1(4). The 384/128 upgrade allows for multiple IOSes.
- The 2801 upgrade is also a dual FE ISR router that offers two additional HWIC slots over the 1841 with enhanced functionality, dual AIM slots and PVDM slots on the motherboard for future Voice use. Similar to the 1841, 128/32 runs 12.4 and 256/64 runs IOS 15.1(4).
In regards to the switch upgrades, here is what is available:
- The base 2950 supports 12.1.22 (SI) Stanard Image IOS which covers 95% of the CCNA exam. It can pass IPv6 traffic, but does not support IPv6 addressing.
- The 2950C/T/G upgrade supports 12.1.22 (EI) Enchanced Image IOS which will support Enhanced QoS, 802.1s MISTP, and 802.1w RSTP.
- The 2960 upgrade supports 15.0(2) IOS and IPv6 addressing and can do very limited Layer 3 static routing.
- The 3550 upgrade supports true Layer 3 routing while running 12.2(44)SE6 EMI IOS.
- The 3560 upgrade supports 15.0(2)SE5 and true Layer 3 routing and PVLAN and QoS features the 3550 does not.
Listed below are the componets of the kit of which you can select any of the upgrades we described above.

These are the same study guides you would receive if you attend one of our CCNP boot camps. The CCNP ROUTE 642-902 study guide is 273 pages long and follows the format of an official curriculum book in that it has a Power Point slide at the top of each page and text describing the concept below it. The SWITCH 642-813 study guide is 245 pages and the TSHOOT study guide is 173 pages.
So how are we able to deliver all three study guides normally priced $59.97 for the special bundled price of $49.99?

This is a complete Cisco certification kit and much more than just hardware to build a lab. Obviously we include the hardware you need but we also include ALL of the study material you need to pass your exam in one kit which we will show you samples of below. No other kit contains a physical 450+ page CCNA Lab Workbook, a physical 100 page Subnetting workbook, our three ICND1, ICND2, and CCNA practice exam simulators so that you can break your exam studies up in the way that best fits your study style. These practice exam simulators are so good that when they are purchased as a solo product we offer our Pass Guarantee. Then we also include our ICND1 1001-101, ICND2 200-101, and CCNA 200-120 Boot Camp Study Guides in Windows eBook format. These are not pirated copies of eBooks, but fully licensed copies that are 436, 384, and 780 pages respectively! So let’s take a look at some of these samples and then we will get to all of the other materials we include which we have not mentioned yet!
CCNA Lab Workbook
Here is a sample topology from our 450+ page CCNA Lab Workbook that will walk you through over 60 labs. You can see them all listed at the bottom of this page. Notice how we have redundant links and combine both WAN and LAN technologies in our lab as they each use different encapsulation types. These are the types of complex labs that will help you actually learn the topics in the CCNA exam. This is a $44.99 value alone.
Click here to download the sample CCNA EIGRP Lab
Subnetting Lab Workbook
Now let’s take a look at a portion of a chapter in our subnetting workbook by downloading the sample chapter in pdf format here. Notice we explain the theory behind the process and then give you written lab exercises at the end of each section. You will get over 100 practice questions to burn subnetting into your brain! Keep in mind you will receive the full printed book when you order the kit. This is a $19.99 value alone.
ICND1, ICND2, and CCNA Exam Simulator
Now let’s take a look at a sample of our CCNA exam simulator program which you can download a trial version here. Notice that these are not simple questions like what protocol runs on port 21. You have to be able to read and understand the topology, comprehend the different subnets shown and understand what they infer that Cisco is not going to tell you and then draw conclusions based upon the problem that is described in the question. These are not the kind of questions you can brain dump. These force you to learn the concepts covered on the exam and prepare you for the types of questions you will see on the exam. We also provided detailed explanations on why each possible answer is right or wrong. You need to understand why you answered questions incorrectly so you don’t make the same mistake twice! These are so good that when purchased as a solo product we offer our Pass Guarantee. Each one of these normally costs $49.99 each when purchased separately for a total value of $149.97. Compare this to the exam simulators offered by Transcender for $139 or Measure-Up for $99 per exam!
ICND1, ICND2, and CCNA Boot Camp eBooks
We also include Windows eBooks from our ICND1 100-101, ICND2 200-101 and CCNA 200-120 boot camps (these are not pirated eBooks). You can click the link to download a PDF sample of our Advanced IOS Management chapter. We offer these eBooks individually for $29.99 each but we include all three in our kits for free! That is an $89.97 value.
CRAM Sheet, TCP/IP Poster & CCNA CBT Training DVD
You will also get our CCNA CRAM Sheet. This six page, full color laminated foldout is a great addition to your CCNA study arsenal which is easy to carry around so you can study the exam key points anywhere. You will also get our CCNA TCP/IP Study Poster to hand in your cube or study area. It compares and contrasts many of the differences between IPv4 and IPv6 for your CCNA exam. You can also add as an option to your kit our CCNA CBT DVD. This CCNA computer based training is comprised of 44 videos that total more than 22 hours of CCNA training that you can get as a $50 add-on to your kit. This is the same instruction you would receive it you sat in a full week CCNA boot camp.
