Hi. I failed the ICND 1 twice in the past. I am considering completing the following Cisco Academy courses seeing as I am struggling with basic concepts to pass the CCNA exams:CISCO Certified Network Associate 1 - Networking FundamentalsCISCO Certified Network Associate 2 - Introduction to RoutingCISCO Certified Network Associate 3 - Routing and SwitchingCISCO Certified Network Associate 4 - Wide Area NetworkingThese will take me about a year to complete total but I hope to be experienced enough with hands on and theory to be able to pass the CCNA directly after. Do any of you have these courses behind you? I'm taking them through distance ed online. I really want to pass this exam. Any opinions/advice would be excellent.I do have lots of boots/CBT/lab sims/real gear. I just have no on the job exposure to the equipment in production which I feel would have made a huge difference in passing a long time ago had I had the hands on day to day experience.
