Got my A+ Core and OS certs today. What to do next?

and the best part is, work is going to reimburse the cost
Been meaning to do it for years and finally got around to it.

I'm thinking Network+ or Novell next. Novell due to the bank I work on the helpdesk for being a Novell environment

work is also paying for some sort of cisco networking course at the local community college so a cisco cert will likely be in my future too depending on exactly what this class covers

So, how would you rate the book you used in regards to passing the test?

I'd like to get mine in this year before they change formats.

It think it's a good book
and the practice tests on the cd were good, although they used a totally different grading system. book's tests were 50 questions, needed an 80% to pass
real thing was 100 questions (per part) and needed a 505 on the OS and a 515 on the hardware, and not every question was graded according to the info at the beginning of the test.
the cd also had videos but I never got around to watching them

A+ changes at the end of the year
instead of a core and an os test there will be 1 test everyone takes and then something like 3 or 4 options for the 2nd based on intended career path
