    Do you have any experience with Cisco products? Do you have any networking experience? If not, I'd suggest starting with the Network+ to gain a solid understanding of networking concepts.

    As you may know, there is a lot of information available for the CCNA. I'd suggest getting the CiscoPress book. It also helps to be able to actually configure routers and switches, so I'd suggest picking up some used hardware or a good simulator.

    If you're looking for a practice test to help you study, there are number available. I work for a practice test provider, so I'm biased, but other people on this board can give you good advice.

    If you're in IT already, get a job with a company where you can get some hands-on experience administering Cisco routers in a real-world business environment.

    If you're not already in IT, you should hold off on the CCNA until you've built up some real-world IT experience. Start off with the A+, Network+, and MCDST.
