Hello all, i'm 16, a junior in high school, and love working with computers, mainly hardware. I was taking a course in Ky for A+, and Net+ but had to move to Vegas before i could finish the full year. So i know A+ hardware thoroughly, but have yet to study A+ software, or Net+. The technical school here is full for the remainder for the year for Information tech and are only open for "electronics." I may take college courses this summer to get the classes i want on a more professional level. I was going to "Eastside Technical School" in Kentucky, best vocational school in the state. The one here hardly compares. Well there is my background information, now onto my questions. What should i do? Go to more schooling(if so what type of school, technical school, college, and for what types of degrees, certs), or try to get a job with my current certs(i will have a+ and net+ by senior year)? I have no one with experience to point me to the right direction here, so if anyone can give me ANY advice it'd be most appreciated. If any further information is required by anyone, plz say so and i will post it. Thank you for reading.

Jeepers my friend,
Please go to Collage. The 4 year degree and then certs will do you well.
You have time to go to school while you are young and your brain is still learning easy. I am 42 years old and have to finish collage and it has been hard to go to school ( part time), work, and take care of a family.
The collage degree lasts a lifetime. The upper certs like microsoft and Cisco have to be recerted every 3 years. Do the 4 year degree then when you are working in IT, the certs will be easy ( or pick a school that makes preparing for the certs part of the class ) kill 2 birds with one stone. That is making the best of your time and money.
