cbt while going to a university
So the first AAB in got from a for profit school didnt teach me anything about networking, the second one at a junior college i earned kinda did, but not enough to where if i was at a walmart and needed to buy a router that i would end up asking the guy in that department which one is better. So now im at a univesity working towards the BS in computer networking and gave up on the cisco networking academy aspect of learning, i passed the first 4 classes but for some reason still have now idea how to do anything in networking, couldnt fix my own router at my house if i needed to. Now im signed up on CBT and the explanation of the concepts are a little better, but i still have my doubts after i watch all the videos if i would be any better off. I tried to copy the labs from cbt in packet tracer but the port number and stuff dont exactly match so i wasnt able to connect two routers together. Im sure i can finish the degree, but i have my doubts on how to learn anything hands on wise, i have access to lab on campus, but as much as i hate to say i half to be spoon fed the learning process when configuring routers, i cant do anything on my or or set up a basic lab unless someone shows me step by step. Im not a fan of computers or computer networking, i actually dread the classes i half to go to everyday. But in the army i hated the school aspect of training and didnt think the selected field was for, but once i was out in the field actually working, i loved it and did well so im trying to keep that mentality in mind when learning or trying to learn computer networking.
