    so i'm doing networking - ccent level - nearly ccna (fingers crossed) - but saw a comment from Mr boson on here, and thought it made sense to have some knowledge of the server side of things as well - just wondered if anyone had any advice on maybe which to start with MCSA? or maybe lower?

    That depends on how much real-world experience you have with those technologies.

    It will do you no harm to study the microsoft 70-290/291 and so on, but most employers will want experience to back up any certs you have, so whether you take and advertise these certifications is a matter for your experience in a working IT environment.

    Having said that there is nothing wrong with aquiring any new skills which may aid you in your current role, and maybe help you gain a more advanced role (then taking the certs)
