Passed Security+ today

778/900, not what I was expecting but have to admit I was thrown by some of the questioning and was just hoping for a pass when I finally clicked submit. I feel comfortable with the meat of the subjects though. My question is should I go straight for my MCSA and eventually MCSE or maybe take something like the Linux+ because I have ZERO background with it. I'd also like to eventually learn some SQL. I am currently an applications analyst with 3+ years of previous help desk/jr sysadmin experience. I've only been at this job for a few weeks. My interest is in cyber-security but the jobs aren't in my market here and I don't plan on making a move.

    Sorry I used the GCGA material from Darril Gibson on his website and the paperback book which was a great resource. I took the practice exams on here and on Exam Compass and made notes on questions I missed because I didn't understand the concept. I ended up with pages of notes and flashcards everywhere.

    Proverbs 6:6-11Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler, Provides her supplies in the summer, And gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
    When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep, So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler And your need like an armed man.
