Or dare I say, CCIE? If so, how tough is it to get? I probably wouldn't need a CCIE (nor am I probably smart enough to pass the test), but how hard is a CCNP cert? Or, barring that, is a CCNA good enough to get a good job? I'm thinking of making a career change. I'm a web developer and designer, but I'm not happy with the opportunities in my area. I'm interested in network administration, and I'm young enough (30) that I could dedicate some time to work my way up the Cisco ladder. Is this a good idea?
