Asunto: Which CERT to get

Hello List,
   I would like to get some opinions on which cert would be better to
I know this has been discussed a bit here on the list, but I have a
specific certs I mind.  I was wanting to know which would be the better
to pursue, the CISSP or the SSCP?  Both are from ISC2.  I am presently
trying to get into the security field and have been told the CISSP
would be
the best one to get, but it seems to be a bit more managerially
I'm not really trying to be a Security manger.  I would like to have
more technical skills.  Is the SSCP more technical or is it similar to
CISSP?  Any opinions and advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Thank You,
