    Someone told me it's hard.

    This is for someone who doesn't know anything either.
    How is the material? The exam?

    I'm working on it now - it's pretty difficult just from an information dump point of view. The actual application of the knowledge isn't actually difficult, but remembering everything is.

    Other than that, it's good times :bigthumb:

    I have a buddy working for his CCNA and it's tough... Definitely not something you just pick up and do without any experience first.

    well, I'm taking courses for A+ right now. I can do the same with ccna. It's just that I have no experience, nor do I know shit about anything.

    CCNA is simple. If you have a hard time with CCNA, then you may want to chose another career path. It just gets more difficult after that.. MUCH more difficult.. And a CCNA by itself isn't worth very much.

    Certs are nice and all, but in the long term, unless you get your CCIE, a degree will be more valuable. Degree's dont expire, Certs do.
