Default Help with career path!

I just started my senior year in High School. I am sure I want to go into IT/Computers but I dont know where to begin I have been looking at colleges I am also studying for the A+ cert now I have a couple A+ books and Programming books because im not sure which route I want to take Networking or Programming. Is it good to start studying for certs now or is it to early??

Never too early.

As a matter of fact, you may have a Skills Center you can go through via your HS to get into A+ and Computer Networking.

All in all, it really depends what you're most into.

Look at ETA-I, and CompTIA.

Get a feel for some of the stuff through their "tryout" programs. See what's more interesting too you.

Comptia certs are great to start with. As the other poster said it's nevertoo early. You are young so try different things to see what you enjoy. College is also good for this reason bc it gives you hardware, software and programming experience which allows you to see what you enjoy.
