Welcome to the exciting world of Cisco certification! You have picked up this book because
you want something better; namely, a better job with more satisfaction. Rest assured that you
have made a good decision. Cisco certification can help you get your first networking job, or
more money and a promotion if you are already in the field.
Cisco certification can also improve your understanding of the internetworking of more
than just Cisco products: You will develop a complete understanding of networking and how
different network topologies work together to form a network.
Cisco’s Cisco Certified Network Administrator (CCNA) certification provides a way to distin-
guish those brilliant and talented enough to become Cisco administrators from those who just
might be, umm—well, better suited to another occupation. It’s basically Cisco’s version of sep-
arating the wheat from the chaff. The main reason that it’s a really good thing to be the proud
possessor of Cisco’s certifications is that they give you a serious edge over the poor, wretched,
unfortunate, and noncertified masses.
