Just wanted to get some of you certs veterans advice on something that I've been contemplating.

Im currently working on my CCNA (through Netacad) & was kinda interested on self studying & getting the Network+ & Security+ certs too. Is it possible?

Little Background:
> 20 years old
> no social life
> A lot of study resources
> have time to study all day
> Planning to sit ICND1 end of July
> ICND2 in December
> Network+ & Security+ before end of 2015.

Your thoughts?

    I honestly don't see the point of getting the N+ if you have a CCENT/CCNA. Doesn't hurt to brush up on the concepts of the N+, but it's not really going to help you at that point.

    S+ isn't a bad cert to get familiar with security concepts. If jobs around you are requiring it and/or you don't mind dropping the $ for it, then go for it.

    As far as self-studying, yes of course you can.

    If you get your ICND1 do not waste your money on the Network+. Otherwise looks good! Best of luck

    edit: looks like markulous beat me to this point ;)

    Focus on the CCNA if you are natural interested in networking.
