    Hey all,

    I'm Sovvy - an A-Level student hoping to gain himself some certifications behind him before/during university :)

    I've been mooching around these forums for a good few weeks, only just recently registered. Finally made a decision (after some deliberations) to go with self-studying over the whole Teaching Provider route. I must say, i'm a little flummoxed by what route to take, what certifications to take, etc and when's the best to stop without real proper experience. I've had a look around, and taken a look at some of the guides (kudos to zimbo and others for them!)

    Some feedback would be good! I've been thinking of along these lines:

    A+
    Network+
    MCDST
    MCSE
    Linux+
    Security+

    Obviously this is a good 2-3 year plan, but is this the right route to take? Are any of these more experience-friendly based? Also, I'm unsure of what some of this numbering means (i.e. 70-271) - are these modules that you must take to pass some of the Microsoft certs?

    Sorry for the tonne of questions! :p Thanks for the help!

    Might want to try and find certs that align with courses you're taking (or will be taking.) Why not do Network+ while taking an introductory networking class? It's like a two for one deal. Get credit and a cert. Also keep in mind that some CompTIA certs are transferable to Microsoft. You could use A+ and Network+ as an elective for MCSA, for example, or Security+ as an MCSE elective.
