I have done my MCSE (Win2k) and now I am preparing for CCNA. I haven't joined any coaching for this. I am currently using the Techmedia book for reference.
After my CCNA, I have two options: A Security certification like Checkpoint or a Linux certification. Please guide me where should go by considering the latest demand.
Security topics are definitely the hottest thing going in certification right now, but you should let the needs of your particular job market guide your choices, if you don't have a particularly strong preference either way.
If you do decide to go the security route, I'd recommend starting off with the CompTIA Security+ cert to cover the general background, before tackling a vendor-specific cert like CheckPoint, Cisco, or whatever.
Good luck in your future cert activities!
