see my responses above re: building your own lab with physical hardware.
imho, the only time that having a physical lab is better is when you don't pay for it.
and even if you get one for free, it still needs to be accessible anywhere since you cant bring the hardware with you.
which means your pod should have good internet connection and your pc/laptop should have good connection as well.
a lot of the virtual ones are free and all you need is an i5 with 8G ram.
the main benefit of having a virtual lab is that it's mobile.
meaning you can bring it along with you in a laptop and doesnt internet connection.
i myself am studying for an exam a month from now and i built pods on WEBIOU
this means i can still lab while on trips and instead of watching movies during an 8 hr flight, i get to lab some more
selling the gear is a con since the value will be way lower compare to when you first bought them
and it's a bit hard to sell stuff locally
again, if you have money to spend for a physical pod, it would be better to spend that money on exams instead
there's a lot of materials available, from books to videos to practice labs, that you can get, most of which are waaaay better compared to having an instructor
only con is that no one will be physically available to answer your query should you have one.
Thanks for the input sir.
Pero cheapest option ko pa din ung homelab. Tried running GNS3 sa laptop ko pero medyo may kabagalan kahit na set na IdlePC ko.. APU na entry level lang kasi CPU ng laptop ko. Anyway thanks for the input sir.. I'm almost decided maghome lab na lang ako.
try iou.. if you have budget try "VIRL"
Ntry ko na din sir. Switching lang nman ang ang sinisimulate ng IOU diba? Correct me if I'm wrong. Pinagana ko lang kasi sila pero hindi ako nagtry gumawa ng topology dahil mainit na sia 3 router pa lang nakabukas..
pede ka din naman mag GNS3.
actually, mas limited ang switching functions na available sa IOU.
Most routing functions are available though so malaking tipid instead of buying actual hardware.
may switching functions din naman na available.
check out the documents available online to know more =)

pwede magtanong? sana may sumagot ano ba pagkakaiba ng rip , ospf , eigrp? at kelan sila gagamitin? thanks
Salamat sa mga nagadvise mag GNS3.. At first, hesitant ako maginstall dahil kaka upgrade ko pa lang ng Windows 10. Buti na lang triny ko pa din. Mukhang ito na lang muna gagamitin ko for my review. Medyo natrauma kasi ako sa IOU and daming settings na kailangan iset at kailangan pang maginstall ng VMware.. I'm just using a regular image at mukhang ok naman.. Ewan ko lang pero parang mas ok sia ngayon compared nung naka Windows 8 ako.. Nagisip tuloy ako kung na iset ko nga ba talaga ung IdlePC value.
baka may interesado sa cisco switch jan 3550
anong isasagot niyo kung sakaling itanong sa inyo ng interviewer? bakit networking ang gusto mo? ano bang meron sa networking?
