    CCNA or Network+

    So i`m looking at getting some certs under my belt and have been looking into the CCNA. the training company I have been looking at said somewhere on their site they recommend doing to Network+ first so it gives you a good foundation, however I have worked in IT support for 10 years now and have done my fair share of cabling although iv never done anything cisco apart from plug in a switch which, doesnt really count.

    My question is given my experience is the network+ a good thing to have or am I best of just going straight for the CCNA?

    I have network+ it's very basic i'd recommend going straight for CCNA with your experience. Maybe a sales ploy IMO

    Everything you do with the N+, you will end up repeating in the earlier parts of the CCNA so I would go straight to CCNA if you have some experience with VLANS, routing etc.

    Start with the CCENT and then progress to the CCNA. This is what I did and it gave me a midterm goal to aim for and much greater understanding overall! Much better than trying to cram it all in for a single exam.

    I looking at a company called Commsupport.

    I was going to take the CCENT first as I didn't want to over stretch myself.

    CCNA is the way to go...

    Make sure you are doing the new curriculum though.

    Cheers
