    If you enjoy wireless and want to pursue it, why not certify in all the ways you can? It will help your resume be picked by people looking for maybe CWNA and not CCNA:W, or vice versa. Also it shows that you are not just limited to cisco, which can be important.

    So I'd say its a great idea.

    Def worth it. I just grabbed it yesterday for the knowledge but incase I decide to take the wireless route anytime soon, the materials are there and ready :).
