I need more input on this. MCSA Server 2012 to me seems easier than Cisco CCNA.

With the CCNA, if you go in knowing the material, you'll pass the exam. Cisco may not be completely up front on what all is fair game for their exams, but I've never proceeded through a Cisco exam asking myself what are these questions even asking.
With the MCSA, you first have to master Microsoft Exams. Microsoft gives you walls of text to weed through, looking for the one line that is actually relevant to what is being asked. Microsoft at times leaves you literally counting how many times not and isn't appears in the paragraph to establish if it's a positive or negative statement. And while I cannot confirm or deny this, I've heard that Microsoft hires psychologists to add to the confusion of their questions. I don't feel that the material itself is extremely difficult, its the asinine questions.

I'm actually taking my 70-410 exam today. I already failed my first try last week. I'm actually intimidated with CCNA compared to MCSA since I have no experience with enterprise routers and switches. Though I failed, i'm actually enjoying it. After i'm done with MCSA, i'm planning on getting the Network+ then CCNA. This thread actually gave me the courage.
