    The mcsa is a collection of certs. So you would start off by doing the beginner type certs and these would go towards your msca electives. I would not advise to do too many of these certs before getting a job, even part time in IT.

    Agreed, you should be looking at an entry level cert, such as the CompTIA A+ and then their N+.

    MCSA is not entry level, it is aimed at people that already have industry experience of working with Microsoft server technologies.

    Try and keep your certification path, in line with your real world experience. That way your qualifications will compliment your daily duties. That is where the true worth of certifications come in 8)
