    Hello, been on here a while now but still a newbie i feel.

    I'm 28 and love computers but have no certs. I dont work in IT but would love to and would now like to get the certs required.

    I was 1/2 way through studying the MCDST but i now dont think i have enough free time to continue this before it retires in June so i have came to a dead end.

    Do i do A+ and Network + and then move on to MCITP Windows 7, or do i go straight for MCITP Windows 7??

    I'm in no rush (well, apart from wanting a job!!). I just think if i start at the bottom and work my way up, it will look better on the CV.

    Also going to be starting a IT Support company in the summer as expereince. Just a part time self employed business.

    Any cert adivce would be appreciated!!
    Certifications: CompTIA A+ (220-701 & 220-702)
    WIP: CompTIA Network +

    Id go for the A+ then N+ cos you learn so much of the fundemental basics from these and then you can do others and put that knowledge into practice, thats how i feel anyway! I done my N+ at weekend so am now starting to revse for the 70-680
    Crack on with the MCDST if your half way there! dont give up!
    Good luck!

    I agree with alexdc12...the A+ is going to be your best starting point.
