    Hi

    I am currently a full time student studying Networking and Security. I also want to get my certifications before I graduate. So it is now time to start with A+.

    If anyone has any advice for me please give me a shout.

    Welcome to the forums! You state that you want to get your certifications before you graduate. Besides A+, what certifications are you planning to go after? If you're not going to get an entry-level job while in school, you shouldn't go after any other certifications until you start working and gain experience. For example, if you graduate school with an MCSE, you won't be any more marketable than if you didn't have the MCSE because you don't have the experience to do anything more than an entry-level job.

    At any rate, welcome and good luck!

    What he said. Take any spare time you have, and get a part-time entry-level IT job to start building experience NOW... get it out of the way, so you won't have to "start at the bottom" when you graduate. :)

    Welcome!
