12-27-18 I have been using NetSim 11 simulator for my CCNA exam and I can assure you that you will learn how to program Cisco switch. I had no experience programming any Cisco switch but now I feel very confident to program them. Boson has the answers for all labs and explanation.

5 stars Excellent Product

This was excellent quality to prepare me for the CCNA exam. I love the way the labs text is laid out. You are prompted with a task but no commands are given until the end. This allows you to do them over and over again in order to link the tasks with the commands needed so you can do them from memory eventually. Thanks for a great product.

I'm now a CCNA R&S largely because of this and the practice tests.

5 stars Best of the best!

The Net Sims and Practice Exams helped me to prepare for and pass the ICND1 and ICND2 certifications. Since Boson training is approved by Cisco I can trust that Boson is showing me the 'Cisco way' of configuring Cisco devices. The simulator works great and the step-by-step labs are clear and easy to follow. The exams have a nice mix of multiple choice, radio buttons and simulations. The 'Show Answer' really helped me to understand what I was not understanding. I fully recommend Boson training and I am now using it to prepare for CCNP Switch.
