legally you can get CML 2.0 from CLN Store but before you do that you can try CML online via DevNet Sandbox, it is free and now lets us reserve it for over 4 hours. see https://developer.cisco.com/docs/sandbox/#!networking/networking-overview

otherwise, GNS3 stand-alone lets u use older router images that you perhaps owned. like 7200 which is only one that has IOS 15, others go up to 12.4.

Eve-ng and GNS3 server edition requires your own images which is not always legal  (more likely illegal to use outside)

Make sure you read FaQs before buying CML as it may not run well on your home PC

Google.com  - is your friend

 

there are number of simulators and emulators available to work on CCIE

GNS3

PNETLab

eve-ng

Cisco CML (paid version)  come with all images  200$ (20 Devices)

 

Part of EI labs, you can not do DNAC or SD-Acess (this required DNAC Appliance and Cat 9300 switches) - you can cover 70% of most virtual.
