    Default Is the Server+ worth it?

    I'm trying to plan out my 2013 certification goals. Starting January I'll probably start down the Cisco Route (CCENT), Windows 2012 Route, or go to Server+.

    Do you think getting Server+ would be worth it? Or just leave CompTIA completely after completing my trio (A+, Net+, Sec+) and go into vendor certs?

    I have the Server+, and I can say it definitely helped land me in the job I had before my current one. Field tech for a local contractor company that placed me in the public school system fixing PCs, Printers and servers in each of the 180+ schools in the district. Also got me a bump in pay at the job before that one. At the time I had A+ and Server+. Pay wasnt horrible for a field tech, it was more than I was making at my current Job so I took it. However I don't think I would have bothered with it, if I wasnt specifically in the Field tech field when I needed it at the time. I did a lot of work on Servers before moving to the Schools job.

    Really depends on what you are shooting for, having a basic understanding of Servers, and Server technologies can help get your foot in the door at a lot of places. Where for other roles, it would be useless.
