    Hi & welcome to CF :)

    To be honest, as you've stated that you're a beginner, I would concentrate on the A+, Network+ and the MCDST. The MCSE is not a beginner's cert:

    And the CCNA, again is not a beginner's cert, plus it expires every 3 years.

    These high end professional certs are there to reflect a persons job role & responsibilities and not there to replace experience.

    Hope this helps.
