    all 3 are good, just depends on what you want to do and how much money you have

    CCNA - but if you're relatively new to networking then you could probably use N+ for familiarisation before jumping into cisco stuff.

    True, but I see myself in Networking. Or maybe A+ first, and then CCNA? Is CCNA entry level?

    CCENT is entry level - step down from CCNA. If you want to do CCNA and you have not done networking or are lacking in fundamentals, then CCENT is the best way to start down the Cisco route.

    I have enough for a couple of certs. I'm guessing CCENT, and CCNA. Time, I don't want to spend too much time not working. I'm working full time at the moment, and don't want to spend too much time out of office.

    They're quite expensive, but effective if that's the kind of environment you need.
    You may be better looking at local colleges which are cisco academies.

    Firebrand will teach you how to pass the exam, not how to use the knowledge practically - this comes from a former colleague of mine who did an 11 day course there.

    Home study or college is the best way, home study you can learn at your own pace and enjoy it, but with college you get the added bonus of asking tutors for help.

    I know CCNA is good as I have done it but if I were to choose now I'd do the JNCIA by Juniper cheaper and easier and has as much clout as Cisco.
