I seriously doubt the one module will get you anywhere close to a CCNP. You might come out of it with knowledge useful for passing both CCNA and CCNA+Security though...

=============================================================== From: David Ingram ------------------------------------------------------ For roughly the same price you can by the books (Cisco press books or the Todd Lamle one) and learn that way. I would say it all depends on your learning style. I've kept up my ccna for close to a decade and I never took a class. But I prefer learning the hard way. Classes have their place but there is no substitute for the process of discovering things on your own. You will still need some type of lab/hands on experience as well which is another expense. You could put together a lab of your own, see Wendell Odom's blog posts about this, or you can rent rack time. Buying old gear off ebay carefully can get the job done. I guess that will put you past the 99 mark though. My 2.
