• Got my CCNA – should I go for Network+ certification?

    I passed the CCNA and am wondering what to try for next. I have no practical IT work experience and am trying to change careers. Is it worth adding the CompTIA Network+ certification even though I have my CCNA?

  • Beginner networking certifications: Tips for passing A+ and Network+ exams

    I studied IT two years ago. After I couldn't get an IT job I had to settle as a manager to a pizza shop. This job is satisfying, but I'm currently studying for an A+ certification. Do you think there's still hope for me? And do you have any tips for passing the A+ and N+ (Network+) exams?

  • CCENT or CompTIA Network+

    Is the CCENT the Cisco equivalent to the Comptia Network+ ? I want to learn basic networking fundamentals before I take on the CCNA.
