    Would you say it would be wise to pass A+ before going for N+? Im just thinking ahead really, I am currently studying for the MTA Network Fundamentals exam which I dont think will take me that long tbh, really enjoying learning about networks and may possibly be a career aim.

    Ideally the A+ would be the first exam to take out of those two but of course if you feel confident after the Network Fundamentals you may be able to pass the N+ instead.

    Having a fundamental understanding of how hardware works and communicates with each other is really useful. I personally found the Mike Meyers A+ book fascinating. For me, it was about want more than need, but I feel somebody with that fundamental knowledge will stand a better chance of going on to being a better tech..

    Hmm thanks for the advice.. I think I will just sit the A+ but wait for the 900 series as Im guessing that will be out at some point this year.
