Can we learn CCNA from Books alone? i have practical knowledge in
working Cisco SOHO routers and other devices(Linksys). i would be
joining training soon. but wanted to know how critical would attending
a training centre be...any advice would be appreciated.

I am taking a college class now, and along withe books and access to the
online Cisco lab, I do much better.

I'll let you know in about 10 or so months. I'm trying it using books and
I'm also in the process of putting together a  lab to work with when I'm
home...

CCNA is more than how to manage routers.  Its about network theory and
how to implement a wide variety of networking options.  Can you get
enough out of reading books?  Maybe, but its like trying to learn
programming by just reading books.  At some point its necessary to
actually test your knowledge against real world conditions.  Cisco SOHO
routers will only provide a small subset of that experience.

Absolutely agreed.
this is not even close to MCSE or other monkey tests. this is hard core
networking.
