I have targeted to take my CCNA Security exam by end of Jan, and I am using the bootcamp and the Technology course by Chris - which are amazing. I am also using the Official cert Guide as well and also reading through Cisco Design Docs.
One thing that I am unable to conclude is what is the cheapest way to practice on ASDM and ACS ( at least from the 210-260 exam perspective ), there are several options:
1. I could use VIRL on Packet, this gives me ASAv and therefore ASDM( but no ACS but for CCNA level I can live with that)
2. I could use the Rack rentals from INE for CCIE security to get some hands on walkthrough in th ASDM as well ( although the CCIE Secuirty Rack Guide does not talk about anything w.r.t ASDM but I think I could use one of the test PCs and just URL into ASDM on the ASA - Right INE experts? )
3. Get ASAv and deploy it on AWS ( or even ESXi locally on my computer - but AWS is so much more fun ) - but I am un-able to download ASAv software from Cisco Software central due to some form of account restrictions....)
Maybe there is better/cheaper way ? It would be great if there was a smaller rack rental just for the sake of CCNA/CCNP Security with 2 or 3 tokens per hour :) ( nudge nudge sales team )
Thank You in advance.
