This is my first post here, and I wasn't sure where to put it. When I first started going to school I wanted to get a degree in computer science. As I started taking classes I realized you have to take a certification exam for the class.

My question is basically what's better, a degree or a bunch of certifications? What if I go to school and get certified in a couple things and find a good job, should I still pursue a degree or do employers look more at your certifications? Any knowledge you guys have in this area is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I think both having a degree and certifications counts but what counts the most, is having experience. I got my degree but I also have experience in the computer field and having experience is a big plus.
