    Becki, it's good that you're getting your plan together, but you really don't have to buy *all* of your books at one time. As I understand it, you'll be pursuing your A+ and Network+ certifications first. Focus on accomplishing those goals (and acquiring those resources) before moving ahead. You'll be able to stretch your budget a bit more that way.

    Agreed... plus, you never know when a newer edition of the book will come out... and you always want the newest one available. So, Trip's right: buy your books for one certification at a time.
