    If you are wanting to head down the path of net security, with Cisco in particular, then I would dive right into CCNA and go from there. A+ Net+ and Sec+ can benifit a MS career path, but network security from a Cisco standpoint, MS certs wont really be benificial. The material that you would learn security wise as it applies to networks is going to be more than covered by the cisco cerst, probably more than you would ever want to know icon_wink.gif

    But, it is always good to be well rounded on both the network security and the backoffice security systems.

    I'd set a goal and work towards it. Draft up a certification path for yourself and write down all the exams required, your timeframes, and materials required to put everything in perspective. Then think about the future. I know most people trying to attain a major certification like MCSE or CCNP or something have so much on their plate that they can't see where they are going afterwards, but it's important to think about. Employers don't want to see people achieving their goal and then stopping, so it's always wise to have a plan for progress. If you have your heart set on Cisco and are working towards that, grab a sheet of paper and do as I said. Microsoft certs aren't going anywhere, so there will be plenty of options for you once you are done with your Cisco track, and employers love that ambitious "go-getter" attitude that comes from study, practise, and success.
