    Congratz :).

    It really depends on what you want to do, assuming support go desktop/server and look at MS certs or go network and then Network+ is logical enough.

    Network+ is always useful to have. It is not CCNP or harder, it's just an entry Networking certificate, yet still worth doing. I am actually going for Network, Server and Linux, along with CCNA certificates. My most wanted goal is specializing in networking the most in the end, however, all of these certificates are worth having for general knowledge and getting that first good job to get you into the 'elite' IT world. It will take time, money, dedication and hard work but that's the only way to do it... I don't want to work at helpdesk or as a PC tech forever! (although there's nothing wrong with those jobs, just can be so draining and boring sometimes)

    Network + seem to the the way to go. At the very least it is good foundation and practice for future exams.

    Congrats!

    Congrats on passing your A+.

    I would also recommend doing the N+ next.

    Agreed. Network+ is the next cert to go for. I'm in the middle of it now (aiming to finish March) and it's helping me to get a understanding of the direction i want to go...hardware / networking.
