CCENT or NET+ no work experience?
Let me start off and say that I have 0 hands on networking experience. With that out of the way, I have studied for the N+ and was about to register when I saw the price...dang. I am wondering, should I study more and take the cheaper but harder CCENT exam? I feel confident about passing the N+. I am trying to get an entry level job and when I look at job openings in Atlanta I see alot of "CCNA preferred". I've read Mike Meyers AIO book and watched all of Professor Messer's videos online. If I commit time to reading and ICND1 book and some plural sight videos could I pass the ICND1 without experience? Also, is it even worth it if all I have is the CCENT and not a CCNA?
