Network+ Certification - Is it Worth it?

david_e_moore
Hey everyone, I want to know general opinion other on whether or not the new CompTIA Network+ certification is worth all the effort. I got a CCNA as my first certification out of high school and then an A+ cert. My CCNA is expired now, and I want to advance my career in IT with some solid certifications. I have been studying off and on for the Network+.

Could anyone tell me, is this certification worth all the trouble??

Thanks!!

    Renewing your CCNA would be more beneficial than getting the Network+ certification.

    Thanks, I want to move up in my IT career and possibly to a Desktop Support role or really, I want a Network Support job. I was thinking eventually doing something in Server 2003 or Server 2008. I know Cisco jobs are hard to come by, and being married I need something stable and long lasting. I'm thinking something like renewing the CCNA and maybe starting something for MCSA. Thanks for the Info though.
