Just passed the exam with instructor grade. I think it was easier than that everyone told me. Studied for 7 week using book and e-learning. Book was more helpful, but slides helped with identifying areas that needed extra time.
Now comes the ultimate question: my job is more towards design, install and support. So I am thinking that AP or DP would be my next choice. However many users are suggesting to get SP next. So here is my question: is there some kind of official mandatory progression sequence or some kind of suggested chain?
In the next 3 years I will be designing wlans and troubleshooting problems with connectivity and throughput, while someone else on the team is handling security.
After the CWNA, there is no mandatory order.
Based on the information you have written here, I would first go for the AP, then DP, then SP.
I took the SP before the AP - the opposite order would have made the SP easier.
In the situation today I would go for SP first since there will be new versions of AP and DP in Q4.
