    Congrats, I first passed the CCNA when it was 640-607, just took the 801 yesterday and passed. Did you feel like it was a beast or not as bad as you thought?

    Nice job, kai. Congrats.

    No matter what your plans are, providing they're cisco-related, you can't go wrong with an indepth knowledge of routers and switches, so perhaps the BSCI and BCMSN should be considered next.
    There are only 10 kinds of people... those who understand binary, and those that don't.

    Congratulations! icon_thumright.gif

    Usually the CCNP is the next after the CCNA -- but the CCDA is also an option that give you good overview of lots of the different areas (but not the configuration skills to do any of them icon_lol.gif).

    Security usually requires experience, but if where you work wants you to learn the PIX or offers to send you to classes -- then consider the CCSP if you're interested in security.

    Voice is also a hot topic, and having the CCNP is useful, but if you get a chance to do some voice stuff where you work -- then it can be worth learning voice first, and doing the CCNP later.

    If you're working for (or get a job with) a Service Provider, then the CCIP might make more sense, rather than the CCNP.

    You can check the Cisco Career Page for more information on the Cisco Certification.
