Hi! If you really want to learn about switching, I'd recommend picking up a
couple of switches and learning "hands-on." It will give you a chance to
play around with different configurations. If you've got the bux, go with a
couple of 3550s (it'll pay off after you finish CCNP and go for CCIE). If
you can't afford that, go with a couple 1912s instead.
