I am currently teaching myself c++ with a couple of books and im planning on learning a bunch of things in the next 3 years...and get some certifications...thats my plan
what certifications should i start with, yea you will all probably say "it depends what you want to do" but i wanna learn it all
im thinking on starting with A+, since it deals with how the computer works, and also memory allocation and the such, which things learned there can be transfered to other things like how you store strings and things...so what certificatinos of things are available, what are they, what do you recommned, and what are you certified on?

im taking A.P. C++ in high school but my teachers a bitch so it sucks. according to learner, you need to know HTML, PHP, java script, and some other stuff to get a good web site going. get Microsoft certified and you (might) be able to get a well paying job. thats about all this fool(me) knows in this topic

Microsoft, Oracle, Cisco, Novell, linux, A+ and so on and so on... There is too many certifications to get for me to name them all right now, specially each individual one. I myself have a couple of Microsoft certifications and im gonna be takin one of the Cisco ones pretty soon. If you take AP comp sci in school and pass the test you wont get a certification or anything but you'll get credit for college.

oh, and ohfuk, my comp sci teacher 0wnz your teacher and rapes him every night.

A+ is a joke. Yeah sure, it's the basics, but once you actually sit down and see what makes it up you'll see what I mean. I have never even heard of someone failing the exam for it. IMHO having an A+ doesn't really prove anything. Sure you know an ide cable from a printer cable, but that doesn't take a whole lotta skill. Do I have mine you ask??? Well, no. I would if I had the money to write the test, and yes I do want to get it. I'm just saying that just cause you have an A+ doesn't really mean you know shit about comps.

I'm working on my CCNA right now (Cisco Certified Network Associate for those who don't know). That cert looks promising in that the material it covers looks interesting and practical. I'm more looking forward to next year when I start on the CCNP. Now there is a cert to ph34r!!!

CCNA is the first step towards CCIE. YOu gota go through one to get to the other. And besides, CCIE is like 5 years worth of work, and at the end you gotta go to Cisco for their 2 day lab test. There's like 5 places in north america to get it done. One day hopefully...

And your on CK. But I'll make this easy on ya. I'll have mine somewhere around the end of april/beginning of may 2003. Guaranteed. You have till then to beat me. I'm gonna write my test as soon as possible after he semester is over to help with finding a summer job.

I'd go for a CCNA and a Server2 certification, possibly some linux administration and some oracle. It seems like a lot of work but well worth it.

Do you guys think employers look more favorably upon certs or college degrees? This is just in computers, I'd like to add
