    Those certs will not make you like a Bill Gates.

    It looks like a decent path to me, but its a long path. Keep your certification goals short term because you never know how the market will shift.
    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.

    Yep, dears - great response - I agree wholeheartedly!
    Maybe this should be moved to the security thread?

    Why can't he stay and have company? Knowing there's someone out there doing the same thing helps with the torture of how much personal time it's going to take. Afterall, you can't just walk down the street, normally, and say "That CEH certification bent me over and found me in the alps!" I'm sure most wouldn't know, or could care less. Having someone going for the same things makes you feel not alone, and helps boost motivation to continue. Especially if you're competitive, then you'll do it to keep up!

    Like YFZblu, he cheated and bought an ASA.
    In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.

    Well said Roguetadhg!

    @Talha_Alam_56 - welcome to TE and I hope you find your place in IT. That is a pretty long list of qualifications. I cannot speak of the Australian market, but in the US, certs are great to get a foot in the door but it's skill and experience that keeps you in the building. As it is observed many times in many threads on TE, it's not the certs and degrees that matter, it's the willingness to excel in your profession and build on your career. The degrees and certs are simply one dimension in career building.

    And btw - Bill Gates was a college dropout and I do not believe he has any certs.

    In the Australian Market (i live in Australia) a lot of entry jobs are asking for CCNA or even MCSE these days.
    If you really want to know what clout these certs hold in the Au market, hit up SEEK - Australia's no. 1 jobs, employment, career and recruitment site and have a look.
