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.

5 stars Wonderful network sim.

Beats the pants off of packet tracer...and i actually like packet tracer..so that's saying something. i'm just disappointed Boson doesn't offer any free practice labs. After spending an arm and a leg on this sim, can you guys really justify 250+ dollars for practice labs. i don't mean to be ugly, just saying...what's the point of a sim, if no affordable practice manuals accompany the purchase. Anyway, all in all, good software.

5 stars Excellent labs

To me, NetSim 10 seems to work A LOT better than Cisco Packet Tracer for us Netacad students. NetSim 10 scales well at all resolutions (unlike Cisco Packet Tracer). I have a 3k resolution screen on my laptop and you can hardly make out what Cisco Packet Tracer text says. However, NetSim 10 seems to be well-programmed and I can make out all the text as if this program is being loaded on a device with a lower resolution.

5 stars Great study material

Great study material.

4 stars would like to see more troubleshooting labs

Excellent product and highly recommended. I've passed my CCENT and am moving on to the CCNA now.

NetSim labs gave me crucial experience necessary to succeed at the exam that I was not able to obtain with my self-learning method via textbook.

My only wish is that there were more troubleshooting labs where something is broken and you're left to analyze and correct the issue. Most NetSim labs are based on initial configuration of each technology, at least the section dedicated to CCENT. By the lab descriptions there only seem to be a few troubleshooting labs on the CCNA portion as well.

Great product, thanks for helping me to succeed!
