    Hi Welcome :)

    You should maybe lay off the last two certs as they are for people who actually have been working in IT for a while doing related work.

    But good choice with the rest :)

    Bloody hell I feel welcomed, thank you all.

    I don't understand what you mean when you said not to do CCNA.
    My goal is to get CCIE which I need CCNA and CCNP first.

    Thanks.

    We don't say *never* do them. Just wait until you have some experience before you do them.

    Because the CCNA won't help you get an entry-level job in IT. The CCNA isn't designed to get you into IT... it's designed to show that you already have a little experience working with Cisco gear in a real-world IT environment. One doesn't just jump right into a job doing network administration without first having some real-world IT experience. You start out with entry-level jobs, such as help desk support, PC repair, technical service support, and desktop support... build some experience... gain additional responsibilities... THEN advance to the next level in your IT career (from desktop support to server support to network administration).

    Thus, you should learn to crawl before you walk, and walk before you run: get entry-level certifications, such as the A+, Network+ and MCDST, get your entry-level job, and work upward from there.
