    Well after a setback where the servers and power went out at testing center on saturday I took the exam today and passed with a 790- so glad I've got that out of the way. Now to move on to either CCNA or MCSA...can't really decide.

    For future test takers- make sure you know your basics. Just knowing a lot of terms helps a lot when narrowing down answer choices on questions that you aren't sure on. I got a lot of Network Media and troubleshooting and very few netware and mac, but that varies from exam to exam.

    Congrats!

    Aren't you already ON the MCSA with the 790? That's an MCSA-level exam, as evidenced by the amount of experience Microsoft recommends.

    Are you starting to work with Cisco routers in a real-world environment? If so, the CCNA is a good option. Have you been working with Windows Servers in a real-world environment? If so, the MCSA is a good option.

    ha sorry by 790 I mean 790/900. I passed the network+, not 790.

    Here's the thing- in a real world environment I have been working with both. I probably have a better knowledge of the servers, but I'm working up on cisco. I probably should go MCSA and then go for CCNA when I have more experience and have what I know better tested and out of the way.

    Ah, my mistake - I should have looked at the forum this was posted in. :oops:

    Either would be a great idea. But certainly do both!
