Hi Learning for A+ and now I realize the exams are very expensive in my country,I thought to learn A+(to have the knowledge) and dont take the exams and go for Network+ instead What are your thoughts? Thank you
You could study A+ but not take the exam ... if you really want to. Would I say it's absolutely necessary? No, not if your wish is to go into Networking. Would I say it's better if you did have the A+ knowledge? Yes, I would.
You may also want to consider studying the Security+ info., but your main focus should be heading towards a proprietary certification in Networking such as Cisco's CCNA.
Also, check out Network Engineer job ads where you intend to work and see what else they are looking for. This can be very helpful when trying to make the "other" selections after the CCNA.
I am going for network+ becuase I watched a lot Cisco live and in an interview of Kevin Wallace he said you should do Network+ before CCNA becuase it fills the gaps
I'm also doing Security+ after Net+ and then CCNA!!
Not looked back.
CompTIA have great foundational knowledge certs.
Sorry man to ask you this many questions!
