    I'm looking for advice from experienced members please..

    Recently gained a+ and now I’m hungry to get another comptia cert under my belt but can’t make my mind up which to study for next network+ or server+?
    My career is geared towards hardware so my natural thought is server+ but with network+ expiring end of year would i be better off studying this first or is it only really useful if I was following a network support career path?

    Any advice would be helpful guys.

    Certifications: A+

    The network+ isn't expiring at the end of the year, it just won't be a lifetime cert anymore. The network+ is a worthwhile cert for any tech at the beginning of their career, some knowledge of networks is useful to all of us even those who end up in a pure server role.

    I'd recommend grabbing the network+ before the recert policy kicks in, you can then look at the server+ afterwards (possibly) as this is currently not going to be subject to the new recert policy.

    Agree, if you want to go down the route of Comptia Certs. Not alot of people go down the route of Server+ (compared to A+ & Network+, but it's a good basic cert to introduce you to Server hardware) :)
