    First, I just got a job at a corporate-learning center kinda place maintaining all the computers in the training rooms...

    So I have easy access to take exams for certs (hell, I can sign myself up) - and I was looking through the list and its really not as expensive as i thought (i guess the $$$ i hear about it costing is more for classes & getting ready for it). But not only that - I got access to the company's online library which looks to have everything I could ever need on the subject of my choice. freakin sweet if you ask me.

    I'm confident that if I read a book (or two) on one of the tests I could pass it easily (in some cases I would really only read the book because I forget terms or names and usually replace them with "that thing(y)" :))

    I'm only contracted here so its a year job (atleast), and the goal is to, after a year, not only have the years experience, but as many certs as I can manage.

    We use PearsonVUE, Certiport, & DDC(?)... So please let me know whats good, and even better if you have the test #.

    MCSE, A+, N+ - probably good to start with? anyone know the #s? I saw them in the list but am too tired to make sense of what i was reading.

    A+ and Network + to start off with, then go through MCSA/MCSE. MCSE is pretty much MCSA but with 2 more exams.
