i do need some advise regarding a career in IT. i am currently taking an online course towards mcsa with skillstrain.i have almost completed the last material and should be taking the comptia A+ in the next few weeks. i am so eager to take the ccent exam that i have bought the ciscopress text by wendell odom and have started studying it alongside the materials from skillstrain for the A+. should i just study for the Comptia N+ after taking the A+ exam or can i try my hands on the ICND1 640-822 exam after the A+ exam? Or is it possible to study for the N+ and the ICND1 640-822 at the same time. maybe am getting over-ambitious about the ccna because a friend got a well-paid job within weeks of getting certified. though i do not have a strong IT background, i have always had interest and quite comfortable with computing stuff. i currently work as a sales advisor with a telecommunications company and looking to apply for broadband technical helpdesk role with the company once i complete the A+ exam. i think this might offer some relevant experience while studying for the other certification exams. Please, any advice would be highly appreciated.
