Took and passed my ICND2 this morning with a 986/1000!!

Now that I've got my CCNA, I'm wondering what route to take? CCNP sounds like a good option while the material is still fresh in my head, but at the same time, my boss has a really big interest in security so I was thinking CCNA: Security.

Has anyone taken the security track and is it worth it? Should I just stick with the CCNP track before branching out/specializing?

    I would go CCNA Security, then go for CCNP. Any CCNP is expected to know CCNA Security topics anyway.

    Congrats!

    As mentioned by several other members (and it makes perfect sense), take a look at your current situation. What will benefit you the most right now? What are you currently doing career wise?

    Take both of those into account before you make a decision. If getting another cert to pad the resume is in your plans, strike while the iron is hot as the other poster said.

    Ideally, I would go for the CCNA Voice track as its my job to support our VOIP deployment. However, as the exam was upgraded and there's not much material out there, I don't want to take CCNA Voice yet.

    So, I guess my next options are CCNA Security, CCDA, or CCNP. As suggested, I was leaning towards CCNA Security, or maybe even CCDA, but I was curious as to the value of those certs and if its worth going after?
