    Firstly hello and what a good informative forum it is.

    just a couple of questions firstly I will be starting on a college course in september doing network essentials. Then hopefully moving onto network+ and then maybe onto a cisco cert

    Firstly I would like to know am I going about is in the right way (what other certs should I consider) as I am a novice when it comes to networking. I know a bit about computers, (all self taught).

    Secoundly if I am going about it in the right way. what books, software etc would be benificial to me in regards to achieving these certs.

    Thanks :D

    Hi,

    As you are new to certs i suggest you look at the A+ first. This can be done through self-study (as with your other certs) and i think you should it first. I think you may cover some of the A+ material in your network essentials course but i think look at this before the N+.

    Hi,

    I agree with Zimbo; the A+ is a good foundation and covers the basics of networking too.

    As for books i would recommend A+ All in One by Mike Myers (Osbourne publishing) and Network+ guide by David Groth (Sybex.com)

    Good luck.
