Going to a local community college to take some cisco networking courses to give me hands-on before i attempt the CCNA exam. Been reading off and on a CCNA study guide I picked up. Any first-hand experience on taking the exam, or on the job tips. All I've picked up from other things is you use command line a lot. Is that MS-DOS prompt or Linux Command Line though? I am dual booting Win7 and Linux Mint on my laptop now. Wish I had the space to pickup a few switches and stuff to play around with but I live in a small 2 bedroom apartment with a wife and kid, space is something we don't have.
