I'm trying to figure out which would be a better route learning CISCO fundamentals toward certification (CCNA, and maybe CCNP). Would it be best to enroll in a structured classroom environment (a local junior college is offering CISCO CCNA & CCNP programs), or to get books and hardware (eBay have some CISCO training hardware) and learn it at your own time. The cost of the hardware and the tuition (for CCNA cert.) is just about the same. I'm not sure if the hardware auctioned at eBay is agood and functioning hardware and if it's sufficient enough.
Thanks in advance all your input in this regard.
