    Hi Ravneet

    I think you have already made a good decision, the A+ is an excellent entry level starting place and the knowledge you will gain will help you in your endeavours to be a techy troubleshooter. There is much to learn to pass the A+ as with all IT related exams. Do not underestimate their complexity.

    From there, the natural progression would be the N+ (networking essentials). These are both vendor neutral globally recognised qualifications.

    After you have those under your belt, you will be in a better situation to judge which direction you want to go in. Popular choices are the Cisco track or the Microsoft track. The popular Cisco CCNA is a qualification that covers Cisco's products, essentially routers and switches. The Microsoft MCPs cover a variety of things any of which might tickle your fancy.

    Good luck,

    Certifications: C&G Electronics - MCSA (W2K) MCSE (W2K)

    There are technicians and there are TECHNICIANS!!

    Knowing that a computer has a processor is ok,but knowing how that processor actually works is where A+ will help you stand above the rest,kapiche?
    Certifications: A+ Network+
