    are you asking about CISCO certifications?

    If so it depends entirely on your experience level. i.e you shouldn't do the CCNA unless you actually work with CISCO kit in your job, if you are just starting in a CISCO related job doing the CCENT is best but you should really get the N+ first.
    Certifications: A+, N+, MCDST, Security+, 70-270
    WIP: 70-620 or 70-680?

    How can you expect to get any sort of informative response when you have included no details? And there is no clarity in the question, hence 'greenbrucelee's' response (although the words he speaks are all true)

    Taking it quite literally, then the CCIE and all of the paths that it can lead you to, obviously you don't mean that so how about breaking it down.

    What do you do at the moment, what's your skill level, what do you want to do? what time scales do you have?

    All of these are important bits of information, for example it wouldn't be any good going down the Security route if you have no ASA or PIX experience, the same could be said for VOICE if you only have Routing\Switching experience.

    How about you go away and actually think about the question again and come back when you can give US a bit more information, at the same time you would have some better idea on what it is that CISCO have on offer.
    Certifications: CNA | CNE | CCNA | MCP | MCP+I | MCSE NT4 | MCSA 2003 | Security+ | MCSA:S 2003 | MCSE:S 2003 | MCTS:SCCM 2007 | MCTS:Win 7 | MCITP:EDA7 | MCITP:SA | MCITP:EA | MCTS:Hyper-V | VCP 4 | ITIL v3 Foundation | VCP 5 DCV | VCP 5 Cloud | VCP6 NV | VCP6 DCV | VCAP 5.5 DCA

    'Best' is a bit subjective.

    Best for what?
    Pulling chicks?


    You need to be a bit clearer about what you're trying to achieve and where you're starting from.
