    Hi Guys,

    Been a member for a couple of weeks and trying to find the right time to post lol,

    anyway thats the introduction out of the way!

    Now for the question.... My employer has told me that he is going to pay for me to go on courses, now I know I want to do the A+ and then the Network+ but im not sure where to go from there... do I then go for CompTIA Server+ or do I go down the Microsoft path...

    Help would be great lol!,

    Hi & welcome to CF :)

    It really depends on what you work with. Do you work with servers? Do you do more helpdesk type tasks?

    Normally the first 3 certs that I recommend is the A+, Network+ and the MCDST to give you a good footing and then after that expand...

    Haha, I remember when I got my A+ book through the post, it felt like about 3 bricks in a bag. :biggrin

    You'll have no problems mate, after all you've got me sitting 25 yards away - what more could you want!
