    Hey all, first post here. I just passed my OS exam (2003 objectives) on Wednesday with a 772 and am now A+ certified. I'm trying to decide what cert to go for next. I'm thinking either Network+ or maybe a Microsoft cert (MCDST?).

    I started out 10 years ago doing dial-up tech support for a local ISP and as the company kept getting bought out migrated through several different jobs including cable TV installer, cable modem specialist, and now back to IT as a desktop tech/jack of all trades.

    I've got a little experience with lots of different IT niches, but I lack a solid background in any one.

    Any advise is appreciated.

    Network + might seem to be good as you've dealt with networks in your previous roles...

    Welcome!

    Both certifications are useful. Why decide on one or the other? Do both! :)
