To Wilddev, the trip from CWSP to CWNE can be moderate to long depending on your background and experiences. I recommend anyone moving up to invest in an indepth course such as those offered by AirMagnet. Wildpackets etc. But the meat of your education will be the standards themselves. The CWSP material has helped me alot where I work due to a massive migration from wired to wireless connectivity for productivity and flexibility. Protecting our users and systems has become a fulltime job for our staff. My specialty is infrastructure and wireless but security goes hand-in-hand with every facet of my job.
