i've always wanted to do CCNA but never had the time for it. now i have a bit of free time, and i'm feeling like doing now than never.
i have a fair experience in IT (11 years) and i'm not looking to pursuit only CCNA, but jump into CCNP and end up with CCIE (if time permits).
now that alot have changed in terms of certifications (i've seen couple of exams that represents CCNA), and i don't know what do i have to go through to get it.
so, all i need to know now is:
1- which exam should i be looking to attend (for CCNA)?
2- where can i find a list of the authorized Cisco training institutes in my country?
3- I've come across 2 Sims (Cisco and NetworkSim), which one would be best for practice? or even which is the most intensive, complex and almost as good as working on real equipments?
Looking forward to some of your comments that's gonna put me in the right path.
