I'm looking to get Cisco certified. And I don't want to just memorize theory.
Are there simulation programs out there that act like actual routers/switches?
I'm starting at the bottom so I need to brush up on my TCP/IP, DNS, and other networking skills too.
I really enjoyed taking live "lab" classes but I can't afford them any more. The past few years have been a nightmare for me financially.
I hate certification "boot camps" because you only get a shallow understanding based on memorization.
