    Welcome to the forum!


    Ok, for starters I suggest that you read the FAQ's if you haven't
    http://www.techexams.net/forums/ccna-ccent/6434-ccna-faq-please-read-before-posting.html

    After you that you need to decided on the 1 test or the 2 test route. Most people will say do the 2 test route if you have no experience. I personally did the 1 test route. If you do the 2 test route, you get the CCENT and the CCNA. If you do the 1 test route, you only get the CCNA.

    Review the objectives for the exams
    2 test route:

    1 test route:

    So let's see you have decided. Now you need to pick you books. The Wendell books are good. I like the Todd Lammle guides as well. I used the Todd Lammle guides as my main material.

    Todd:
    Amazon.com: CCNA: Cisco Certified Network Associate Study Guide: Exam 640-802 (9780470110089):…

    Wendell:
    Amazon.com: CCNA Official Exam Certification Library (Exam 640-802), Third Edition (Containing ICND1 and ICND2 Second…


    Well that's all great. Now you need something to practice on. I suggest getting yourself a cheap cisco lab. Look at the various lab possibilities on this board or you can look at Wendell's suggestions as well.

    After all of that and you've studied you might want to pick up some CBTs or practice test. I am not going to list all of the possibilities but I think transcender and CBT nuggets are a winning combo. Take a look at some other threads if you want more info. You can also feel free to ask questions here.

    HTH,

    Welcome to the forums!

    I think knwminus has provided enough information to get you started.
    so first of all i would like to know like do i hav know some basic in hardware to start with CCNA .

    You'll learn the differences in hardware during the CCNA studies, ie the difference between a hub, a router, a switch, and so on. You'll learn about cabling, media types - all sorts of things. If you already know that then it's definitely a bonus leading into the material.

    I'm personally using CBTNuggets and the Chris Bryant material to study (while also referring back to some of Todd Lammle's stuff).

    Good luck. :D

    This is a forum, not a chat room. Please write your sentences out completely. It really doesn't take that much effort to spell words correctly. Thank you.

    And to answer your question, knwminus provided you with more than enough to get started. Best of luck.

    I took the two exam route so I wouldn't have to have such a broad knowledge of little details going into the exam. The 2 test route literally cuts the knowledge needed in half per test. It makes it much easier to study for if you are new to the field.

    Let me add another welcome.

    I can understand not wanting to get into programming. Uni killed my love of that as well but why have you chosen networking if you know nothing about it ?

    If you were studying some kind of programming, I'm guessing you studied some form of network theory as well. If so, that will put you in very good stead for the CCNA.

    Jobs will depend on your location. From what I have seen, getting a CCNA will not just hand you a job, but it will certainly open up more chances than without the CCNA.

    It is all about making yourself able to get a job, and putting yourself in situations where you have potential to get the job. Then repeat it for dozens of jobs, and eventually one will pay attention to you. It can really be a luck thing sometimes, especially if you have no experience.
