Feldm4n First I would like to say ..welcome aboard. Pc repair is great it is always something different. I will tell you up front, I took the old A+, DOS up to win95, there is some usefull stuff, but most of it you will never use. You have to get the best grade you can and you need the cert. The cert gets you the inyerview. The day has passed for a face to face for everybody that applies for an IT job. Your resume represents you now. They look for certification and experience, then the interview. If you can , take college level computer courses as opposed to thees 3 month MCSE mills. Beyond that you will learn more usefull info from your fellow techs. Read, read read, beyond the A+ books. Google questions that you have and join groups like this, also do not believe everthing. Get a computer job as soon as you can, and do not think any pc job is beyond you, as much as I hate to mention this company..get a job at Compusa or Microcenter, they may pay for your schooling or part of it , plus they do repairs. They may start you off doing repairs after you show them you can do repairs.

A+, Like everyone already said, Is pretty much the first Cert you should get, it is also probably the easiest and will not earn you much $$ at all,
Im currently studying for A+ and Network+ with CCNA and Linux+ next and plan to get a BD in Computer information Systems.

You dont really need to get those entry level certs if you are getting a 4 year degree. I got most of mine when I was around 16 and the only reason I did get them is because I loved learning and had nothing else to do.
