Thanks for taking the time to read this After much time and research (thankfully) I realized how much more interested I am in the PC Tech department then the IT side. With that being said I was curious/had a few questions I was hoping to get answered: -I'll be a full-time student soon and going for my associates in "Computer Systems & Network Technology" after reading from a lot of people how certs are (it seems) better then a 4 year degree. Should I be working towards a specific list of certs? MCSE? etc. other certs I should really be considering? ( I know times are constantly changing in the computer industry so new certs come out here and there ) Should I pick up a side gig program to play around on my free time at night while I'm a student? Should I consider looking into running multiple OS on my pc or get a couple more cheap PC's for experimentation? ... I could keep going but I don't want to sound...hmmmmp like the little kid with to many questions. thanks again.
