    Depends on your experience, if you don't have any, I'd go with the N+ instead of the CCT then go for the CCENT.

    I recommend just going straight to the CCENT. It is entry level exam, goes over the basics, and gets you right into how to configure routers/switches (very very basic, it doesn't expect you to have any prior knowledge of how to) and setting up simple networks. The Net+ isn't horrible, there is definitely overlap of info between them, but the ROI of the cert is horrible, it won't mean a thing when you get the CCENT and alot of it is memorizing facts that you can check in seconds.

    (I have both of them icon_sad.gif)

    CCT is better than the A+, but if you are starting your cert training, it might be better to go straight for the CCENT and be one level higher.

    Having all of them CCT (RS,DC,TP) and also four CCNAs i could say :

    if you want a "pure" tech job (hardware,cabling,models features ,maintenance,installation with few cli,basic networking)
    then go for CCT , If you want to be an network admin [RS] go for CCENT (some CCT RS knowledge is include in it ) then CCNA

    To summarize :installing equipment [CCT] or managing equipment [CCNA and beyond] ; you can see CCT like a Comptia A+ equivalent.
