For some people, getting comptia certs may be more of a waste of time and money, than a benefit to them. They may not be that valuable on your resume, if you have a certification that overshadows them, like CCNA.
When I started studying, I got several comptia certs first, because I had never taken a cert exam before and I just needed to test myself. The certs do nothing for me resume wise, but what they did do for me was give me a good lay of the land. I was brand new to networking, and didn't know anything, so reading, for example, the book for Network+ was a great way to start. Same for the other comptia certs.
Unless you think there is some way that the cert is really going to help you, I would spend my time and energy on studying for ccna. But definitely look at the comptia books, as they may be useful in filling in any holes in your knowledge and they are good primers.
Opinions are worth what you pay for them, most of the time
Hi, Brian! How are you?
Welcome to CLN community!
Agree with Kev, CCNA is the best choice!
The market calls for a Cisco Certification .

It will depend on your level of knowledge in Networking and IT in general.If you are new to the field then Start with A+ and N+.These will give you all the foundation in Information Technology field,they can even help you in getting an entry level job while still studying for your ccna.
My self I did A+ first when I started my IT career, I didn't write the exam but I studied the whole A+ material.I then studied N+ and passed the exam before starting my cisco journrey
I just got a job doing basic PC maintenance and repair (which I have been doing on my on gear for some time ) and I guess that's why I think I will lean towards doing at least A+ because that's the field I am currently in.
