Do you really need SWITCH?
I know it isn't a set in stone prereq, but all the official Cisco stuff recommends CCNA and CCNP SWITCH as a foundation for CCDA. Do you really need CCNP SWITCH level knowledge to fully grasp the CCDA? I am looking to start on another cert fresh off of my CCNA, and have been reading through Security, but the lack of being able to lab is getting me down. Should I shoot for CCDA which is a genuine interest for me, or keep pressing on with security? Thanks.
