Firefly has a SAN course that is nearly 100% of what you can expect in a CCIE SAN course.
I've got like 3 manuals from the course and it covers most if not all of what I paid a grand for from another workbook.
Granted the CCIE Workbook covers more grand.
I also bought a copy of 2 versions of SAN Fundamentals for light reading and then I bought the SAN MDS Cookbook.
I dug up and bought a book on Fiber Channel as a technology. There's lots of free resources from IBM and others on this subject - Redbooks are great.
Then bought my out-dated lab - but it is functional with a 9506 with dual sups, 4 9216's with all the mods, and 6 JJBODs for extra fun. Seemed such a waste for so many ports. The PAA-2, Dual FC HBA NICs and a few servers topped it off.
