"Thanks for the advice! I passed both halves of the A+ exam last week, while there seems to be some debate as to if it will be helpful on my resume in the future, I found the content useful. I am now studying for my CISSP exam and much of the A+…"

"I do recruiting for a firm that does IT Staffing, and I would agree with Jay and others that you should go ahead and get the A+ for this reason. I've had to disqualify some candidates for several positions because they never got around to…"

"If you want to get some certs you need to think where you are going with your career. Right of the bat I can tell you not do the A+ cert, it is a really basic cert. Just check websites or go to your local bookstore, order a coffee and browse a book…"

"You need to decide on what course to take. If you want to stick with programming, get certs in those or learn more about the languages you work with or learn others. Programming and Networking are two different sides to the IT coin."

"I would study for the CISSP as it will only help you in your current position.  As for brushing up I would just read some books and talk to people.  Get to know the basics of the hardware and it's capabilities.  Same for the…"

"My thought is that if you want to manage then take courses managers take.  Program Management (PgMP) once you've completed PMP and CCISP.  If you have enough credits in accounting and finance get your CPA.  Also consider…"

"Network+ is pointless if you are doing the CCNA. CCNA covers Network+ and then some. A+ is good to have for basic stuff, I read the material but never took the test. Security+ is your call. Cisco, VMware and Microsoft are the three big certs to get.…"

"If your employer will pay for it get your PMP and PgMP.  I wouldn't recommend going for your DBA unless you intend to teach.  Use the time to network, learn the business side (budgets, finance, etc.); you'd be surprised to find…"

Getty/Dubay and the fountain pen

Hey all,In an effort to both get my feet wet with fountain pens and to improve my handwriting, I purchased a Lamy Safari (I also have the refillable doohicky and a bottle of Quink) as well as the book "Write Now" by Getty/Dubay.  The book was recommended in this group in an older discussion, that's why I bought it. While my handwriting isn't too bad by most people's standards, I'd like it to be excellent.  I often take notes and when writing as fast as I can, my handwriting quickly becomes hard…See More
