Hello everyone, I took the CCNA 5 day class at the local Community College. My friend suggested for me to look into it. The kicker is that I had an eye opener. I have never worked in or around Networking, Routers etc. By the third day I finally understood what was discussed on day one. I have the opportunity to take CCNA over for free. My question to all you experts out there is what should a laymen such as myself do to prepare to take the class and what should I know before I even step foot into the class again. Should I take CCENT certification? I believe I will enjoy and comprehend the material this time around if I am well prepared. Any suggestions would be welcomed regarding my situation. Just to state once again..everyone taking the CCNA class had prior work experience or knowledge in the Networking field working with all the hardware. Is it worth my time to retake the class if I buckle down and put my all into it? I do believe that this was not associated with the Cisco Networking Academy, therefore I only received 5 days of classroom data. Is the Cisco Networking Academy a more detail oriented platform? Sorry for all the questions. Thanks for everyone's time.
