Network+ gets you the basics.. and you really need it or a background in networking before moving into something like a CCNA which dives deeper into routing and networking...  MCSE for server side if you are looking to do the server side rather than the true networking side.

If you are not rushed, you could do A+ before Net + that Hutch mentioned.

The CCNA is a big cookie, but you can start with the CCENT before you tackle the biggie.

There are a ton of courses both face to face and video/DVD based.  My combination of choice is TRAINSIGNAL products for the classroom portion and BOSON for the network simulator (For the Cisco stuff)

Note that I have found the face to face courses offered by the certificate factory type environments are no better (in some cases) than buying a reputable class on a DVD.  They usually have a web presence for additional assistance.  THEY ARE CHEAPER TOO....

CCNA is almost a must in today's networking world. Is it easy? well, if you have no exposure to networking before it will require a bit of study but is very doable. It is not as hard as you might think once you get into it.

The best way is if you can get a job as a network engineer trainee and do the self studies on the side.  That way you will get real world hands on experience at the same time as studying. Also you will have people you work with to answer questions you might have. You will almost certainly be guaranteed a job once your training period is over also.

I have used CBT Nuggets for my CCNA and recommend it highly. Trainsignal, mentioned above, I have never come across before but is probably just as good.

Once you are ready for CCNP and CCIE I would recommend instructor lead courses. I would also throw in a Juniper certification also, but courses and even exam locations are hard to come by for it.

As others have said, N+, CCENT and then CCNA will have you in a very good position to get a good networking job. Look at A+ and Microsoft Administrator courses for hardware and server skills, they go hand in hand with networking.

What is easy depends on your background. What have you done before in this area?
