I'm planning to take the CWNA certification exam early next year. In order to accomplish that, I've just passed the CCNA certification exam and I also bought the Sybex CWNA Study book. After all that I've read on the internet about CWNA and CCNA Wireless, I'm still not 100% sure of the ideal path in order to get both certifications. This is how I thought it would be a good way:
1. study the CWNA book
2. go to a few CCNA Wireless labs in order to get a little hands-on experience AND of course, study the CCNA Wireless course
3. take the CCNA Wireless exam
4. take the CWNA exam

I'm more of a technical guy, that's why I've chosen to start with CWNA. It's easier for me to learn and understand Wireless technologies if I know things about how data is transmitted.

Is this a good way of getting the best of both worlds? What would you recommend?

Thanks,
Radu

The CWNA can be passed without any hands on experience with 802.11; however the CCNA/w requires an ability to work with Cisco wireless gear. In short I agree with going for the CWNA first as it will give you a good basic understanding of 802.11 and if you familiar with Cisco gear your good to go.

Good luck!!!
