I am studying to take the CWNA (Certified Wireless Network Administrator) exam. I plan on taking it in 3 weeks and I have been studying for 2 so far. I usually spend a little more time on a certification but I am teaching a computer hardware course in 3 weeks and I want to have this certification behind me so I can concentrate on the class. I found an online study group which has not worked out well so far but I hope to have more communication in the future. Until then I will continue to read white papers and my books and talk with people on forums.
Here is a quote from someone who recently took the exam.
Let me share my progress to passing the CWNA exam. 2.5 yrs of I.T. training, college courses, and labs, including a 6-month security class. CompTia A+, Cisco CCNA, Microsoft MCSA/MCSE, THEN CWNA. And yes, it was hard, I saw questions on the exam that I have never even remotely seen anything like it. I was answering questions on RC4…which made me wonder if I had gotten a CWSP exam by accident. No matter, I have my CWNA now, and plan on taking CWSP within 1-2 months.
I hope I can say the same thing soon. I guess I will see. I will take it again if I fail and study harder. It is my goal and I will see it through.
