Err, when I took it there were not any "hands on" segments. That was back in the mid-1990s though. The test I took had concept questions and scenario questions (which were as specific as a lab test might be, including providing the specific commands you'd type in).

Are there any learning centers where you could take a night course focused on the CCNA? (community college, institute, etc)
I've had a couple of people recommend this place (http://www.internetworktraining.com/labs.aspx) though I haven't validated it my self. It has some cost but might be worth exploring.

You said about "just needing the study guides". Is there a specific publisher I should take or those free e-books are enough?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

I'd actually recommend purchasing the official guides with their cdrom tests - this one is considered to be a necessary fixture in anyone's cubical:

The shipping to Singapore.......US$18.92 . We are not shipping marijuana blocks! Why so expensive!

Do you have your old copy with the CD?

You'd have to talk to Amazon o.O Actually, I'd be kind of surprised if it weren't available locally in Singapore.

No, my version went out the door a few years ago in one of my decluttering sweeps.

It is available, and it is more expensive than Amazon. That is the reason why I didn't want it nor the course - there is so much money in tutoring education with variable standards that the government brought in certification....which makes the process even more expensive.

Thank you anyway; I was hoping JokerD would reply being a local tech himself, but it seems he is busy with lolis elsewhere on this forum.

I did CCNA 1-4 in university. However I never took the final test that requires you to visit some Cisco certified testing center, because those certifications have a very limited life time. When I was ready for my final CCNA exam, my awesome Cisco certification would have been valid for a whooping 1.5 month after that. Considering I wouldn't finish my studium for some years at that point, that seemed really pointless.
Also that test would've cost me money. Up to that point it was free (sponsored by Cisco).

Anyhow... we did have a full lab stacked with Cisco sponsored hardware in it, to do hands-on segments. But in addition to that, we also had a software that would simulate a wide range of Cisco hardware.
You could setup several of those virtual routers and switches by point and click UI (rebuilding the setups shown in the learning material), plugin lots of virtual wires, then pull up consoles for all those hardware pieces and config them, like you would do with the real hardware. Then send pings around, try to access the internet through your virtual setup ect.

- So get that simulation software.
- Get the latest learning material from Cisco (you should get access along with your account that allows you to do online tests). Forget all old material. As I mentioned above, they restructure those certificates a lot. Old information might be wrong.
- Do all the training sessions, cheat through the online tests if need be, but make sure you are prepared for the final test of a chapter, which you need to do under supervision of a certified tester (which in my case was one of my profs).

I think the simulation software was also a download from the Cisco training site, but I can look at my old laptop and see if I can find it, if you want me to.

I found the exact same design, but pretty pricey though:

Actually, for a ring like that, the price isn't that bad (although it is stainless steel).

My female soul is insisting that it ain't pretty enough, hence the "priciness"

Question?

I have a new Ipod classic 7th gen, which has a built-in moving hard drive. When those things drop you run a risk of breaking it because of the HDD. So I was at the gym working out, and listing to music with my Ipod Classic, and of course I have a leather case for my Ipod classic this one to be exact My case

Its made out of real leather which fits nice and compact, plus its well-padded without being bulky, a medium thickness.

When I was changing songs on my Ipod in the gym I caught someone that was in need of assistance through my peripheral vision. The person who was benching was struggling real hard to get the bar back on the stand and was in real trouble. Without thinking I quickly dropped my Ipod classic on the floor (a 3-4 feet drop on a rubber like gym floor) inorder to help that person. Its a new Ipod, and fortunately it was inside the leather case so there were no damage to the exterior. I picked it up and everything appeared to function normally, but I have a small OCD with new things, and like my stuff in tip-top shape. Does Leather absorb drop shocks? and do you think the ipod classic internally was unharmed? I know I'm being alittle OCD, but words rest a worried soul

You dropped it?!!!! Mother of Godwin!!!

Anyway, thank goodness it didn't go pulverized. No matter what casing you using, such gadget like Iphone/Ipad/Ipod etc are quite delicate devices. I'll never trust whatever assurance the manufacturer says about their casings nor even the phone makers....

For your problem.... its better to consult the manufacturer of the device (not the casing) just to have an specific answer and remedy and of course possible insurance....

Thanks for the replies! Ah, that thing is expensive. I'll get it next time the special occasion comes up.

I'm thinking of upgrading the hard drive in my PS3 to make it a little more useful- it's an older 40GB model (wanted to actually start being able to download full PS3 games, do less storage pruning and perhaps also for using the PlayTV DVR add-on).

Does anyone have any recommended HDDs I could use to upgrade my PS3? It needs to be 2.5" SATA I (I've heard that newer WD HDDs aren't able to be forced from SATA II to SATA I, and thus won't work in a PS3), and it's height should be no more than 9.5mm. It should preferably have 500GB capacity and 5400rpm (no real point in getting anything faster).

I'm currently looking at this 500GB Seagate Momentus HDD (ST9500325AS).

If you are only worried about the hdd, then if it's still running now it should be ok. A headcrash (which would be what can kill it by dropping) would surely stop it from functioning right away.
Other than that, electronics (non moving parts) are pretty shock resistant. That is, unless its 'china quality' assembly, which I hope is not the case with IPods.

Typically, handheld electronics are built to be somewhat shock resistant. It's designed and engineered with the thought that people will occasionally drop them. Let's not have them break immediately. And as Dhomochevsky said, if it runs now, chances are, it'll run later.
