"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi

Have good are you with over all networking? Netowrk+ will give you an all round idea of many networking aspects while ccna will give you specificly on layers 3,2,1 of the OSI reference model and only cisco device configuration. Either way it should be fine, but personally I would prefere Network+ to go first. You can use CBT nuggets or books from sybex etc. The coverage is same but the language and the style is different in different publishers so go with the ones you are comfortable with.


Cheers & good luck

Network+ is essential for networking concept.But so many professionals they are more interested to become CCNA certified first rather than becoming Network+ certified.When you're preparing yourself for CCNA you must have to have concept on networking too.CCNA curriculum covers this.Please check the following link to check CCNA syllabus:
https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/community/certifications/ccna/ccna_exam?view=overview

And most of the people prefer Sybex guide by Todd Lammle.Currently 7th edition is available.I'm not going to share the link due to copyright and re-distribution law.

After you prepare yourself you get ready for CCNA Exam.And I have seen the following site is the best.You can get live update and users are posting comments after passing CCNA exam.And most of the times simulations and questions are common too.
