    might be getting a little ahead of myself here but I am trying to formulate some kind of training schedule for the next 12+ months.

    Ultimately, I want to get into server admin roles. I realise I am a bit off that just yet, however, once I get my network+ out of the way, what should I be looking for cert-wise? Or is it a case of it being pointless without the practical experience in this field?

    I know that MCDST is being retired next March, what takes its place?

    I want to keep up the momentum I have for getting to where I want to be, I just need a little guidance.

    Hi mate,

    XP will still be around for a long time to come so definitely go for this cert (you can always upgrade it later to windows 7).
    Then its simply a case of working your way up the ladder :)
    Get into an entry level job as soon as you can to start your career and the certs will follow, the way i see it, you use a+ n+ and mcdst to get into the industry, then every other cert after that should validate what you have learned in your career, worked for me :D
