    If you want a career in IT support then yes.

    A+, Network+ and MCDST would be a good start...

    For the A+ get compTIA A+ all in one exam guide 6th edition by Mike Meyers and PC Technician street smarts by James Pyles.

    For the N+ get Network + by David Groth and compTIA Network+ by Mike Meyers.

    For the MCDST get the MS press books.
