    Personnally I would say none really, you have to start somewhere.

    More of a recommend track would be to do the Network+ first as it will give you a good base to build on when you come to the more advanced topics in the CCNA.

    Nothing Much I would say...

    Just Go through N+ sugessted by dave and I would say go thru A+ books, that give you a very good basic knowledge about Hardware and basic Networking after A+ you can start your preparation for CCNA :D

    This is what you need to know to pass the CCNA exam.

    If you think that is a lot to handle you may want to go this route.

    When I started working towards my CCNA, I had no prior certs. I had a couple years of basic IT experience from work, but I don't really count that.

    HOWEVER, I actually went through the Cisco Academy in a classroom environment at the local community college.

    To be honest, I don't see why you should need anything else when starting out. CCNA 1 covers all the basic theory of networking to give you a good foundation. CCNA 2 gets you working on the routers and implementing basic things. CCNA 3 focuses mainly on switches and has you implement very basic spanning tree, vlan, trunking, etc.... CCNA 4 covers basic WAN knowledge, such as setting up point 2 point connections and frame relay. I also seem to remember it barely grazing over simple VPN concepts.

    Good luck! To me, this is a "start from scratch" curriculum. I'm sure you'll be just fine if you go head-first.

    edit- btw, I recommend you get the CCNA Command Quick Reference. It's nice to have it handy while you do labs and such.
