    Hello everyone,

    I got the A+ 602 to pass and then want to move onto to a next course,
    Im already doing CCNA at college, and very much enjoting it! Just wanted to get your opinion on whether i should still do Network + ? as i think i would complete this quite quickly (because i already know quite a bit about networking) I'm not in the IT industry as yet, would it be worth doing Microsoft/Linux/security+ certifications? :rolleyes:

    Absolutely!

    Other than the MCDST, I would say no, not really... in my opinion, certifications other than the A+, Network+, and MCDST will make you look way overcertified for your experience level.

    I agree with BM

    If you think it will be easy then why not do the exam? Having it on your cv can only help.

    I agree with what's been said already, added to that the CCNA needs to be renewed every 3 years otherwise it'll expire. The Network+ does not have an expiry date.

    One thing you will learn is that no matter how much you know there is always more to learn :)
