Study time for CCNA with Network+

How long do you guys think it would take to get a CCNA when you already have Network+?

I don't have any networking experience but I passed the network + within a month of studying.

This may be a difficult question to answer since Cisco is restructuring the CCNA certification but I would like a general idea of how prepared someone is for the CCNA once they have their Network+ cert.

    There seems to be quite a bit of overlap between the two certifications. That being said, the CCNA will include network programability/automation and the commands needed to configure IOS (which is an oversimplification). Depending on your abilities, you could probably go through the 80 hour-ish CCNA course that David Bombal has on Udemy, plus reading through the OCG, in a relatively short period of time. Paul Browning has a CCNA Simplified book that might be helpful, as well.

    A lot of people like to watch Jeremy C at CBT. He gives a good overview of the content but you will need to go deeper. I passed the previous exam using David Bombal and Boson practice tests and they will definitely speed up study process . Some people can tackle the exam in 30 days but you would probably want to give yourself 3 months. As usual circumstances can vary.
