I needed more experience and also CCNA Certification. Coworkers advise to try BOSON website for simulators. I purchased the Netsim 9.0 for CCNA and CCNP plus CCNA exam questions. Well today I passed and am CCNA CERTIFIED. Thank you to the authors and all who support BOSON. Looking forward to the CCNP Certification with more BOSON products and services.

I've submitted numerous bugs about features that are unavailable in the 3550.

I'm going back to my hardware.

NetSim 8 is a great program. I just think about the complications involved developing it. I use the program as a refresher from time to time and also as test bed..It has a few bugs but I am hoping Boson still supports Version 8.. Cant find updates for it..

Thanks for a great program..

5 stars Invaluable

NetSim is an invaluable tool in the ability to continue learning at ones own pace and schedule through the provided labs.
