    Welcome!

    Depends on your experience level. If you've got real-world, hands-on, IT industry experience, you can pursue the CCNA, CCNP, MCSA, and/or MCSE. But if you don't yet work in IT, none of those will do you any good. In that case, you should pursue the A+, Network+, and MCDST.
     
    Certifications: CISSP, MCSE+I, MCSE: Security, MCSE: Messaging, MCDST, MCDBA, MCTS, OCP, CCNP, CCDP, CCNA Security, CCNA Voice, CNE, SCSA, Security+, Linux+, Server+, Network+, A+

    Also, be careful to understand what 'level' each certification stands for.

    For example, CCNP is a Professional type exam seen at a higher level than CCNA. And MCSE is the more thorough type certification compared to MCSA (i.e. you would first earn the MCSA, then you earn the MCSE after you pass a few more exams).

    What exactly are you interested in however? Networking and Microsoft apps/OS's have a wide disparity between themselves, and trying to excel at both is not easy. If you're more of a Windows type of person, you should try the MCDST for sure to begin with. If you're more into networking, try the Network+ from Comptia, and so on as was mentioned by Boson.
