Francois Gnu:
what should be the most logical path (if it exists)?
-cka exam and then ckad exam
or
-ckad exam and then cka exam?
thanks very much.

Tharanath:
There is no such logical path. If you are more on development aspect you can take CKAD. If you are on an admin side you can take CKA. CKAD is said to be easier compared to CKA. But CKAD needs more practise and speed. For CKA you need to have indepth knowledge on the concepts as there is some troubleshooting required.

Marwan Tawashi:
It is really up to you I took the CKA exam and then CKAD

Pankaj Arora:
I feel, CKAD can be done first than CKA.

As I am done with CKA, preparing for CKAD and feeling CKAD is easier than CKA.
