I recently took my first Cisco Academy program at City College of San Francisco but was overwhelmed with the topics discussed in the book. I was hoping to take the CCNA exam within a year. While in class, I had to re-read some of the concepts especially the subnetting portion because I didn't feel it was sinking in. I don't have any previous technical background either than operating a regular computer.
My question is, should this deter me from taking the course further? I know the program is very good and the certificate holds a lot of weight in the working field, however, I'm feeling a little down because I feel like a turtle racing against a bunch of rabbits.
