    Hi everyone, I am looking at starting a new career in IT support, and thinking of starting of with the strata fundamentals course then move on to the A+ and N+. Is this a good idea and is there anyone who may of done the Strata course and would recommend it. Thank you

    I can't see having an extra cert hurting at all, but I believe in all honesty just get the A+ if you feel up to it. If you would rather start off with the strata course then by all means do it! I went straight to my A+ and am going for Net+ now, if you would like some ideas on study guides for A+ or anything just let me know :]

    Yes, I did the Strata. I was doing the Cisco ITE course at the time and was looking ahead to the A+, but I didn't feel ready due to the amount of material it seemed to cover. I decided to do the Strata first to get a feel for CompTIA's style, the examinination process, and also build confidence and motivation to move ahead by setting interim goals. So you could say I treated Strata as staging for the A+, and I'm doing much the same with Microsoft's MTA track as a preparation for their higher level.

    However, as the previous poster notes, you don't really need these if you plan on moving up the ladder anyway.
