I believe this was beneficial to me passing the test.

5 stars Great way to be introduced to routing software

I was looking at other simulator software, (SemSim and Trogget.O Those were freeware. A friend had suggested that I try this software. I downloaded the demo and was impressed. So I bought it. It was well worth it. The exercises are well defined and behaviour is excellent. I am looking to upgrade this to the next level and start a formal study for Cisco certifications.

5 stars Great Way to Learn Cisco IOS

This was a great way to get familiar with Cisco Command Line Interface. Especially for someone who does not have access to the real hardware. I highly recommend it.

5 stars CCENT Sim

Very good.

5 stars Excellent way to learn the Commands for the CNA
1/24/2012 7:56:49 PM - Larry - Spring Hill, FL US

Before I purchased this NetSim I was very concerned about how I was going to master the various commands that I would need to solve the problems of the CNA test. I went through the whole lab once and it was very rewarding. I am already using the commands at work and it has giving me the confidence level I needed to know where to go between the enabled, exec and priveleged modes. One thing you may want to keep in mind is that if you are used to the short cuts, the are not going to work on the NetSims because they want you to learn the commands. In the real world, you can used shorter 2 and 3 charater shortcuts to completes commands. Execellent simulator. Never crashed and I can use it to experiment as well.
