I am currently in the same situation as you. I am working on a networkiing degree also. I really don't know how you really get a job in networking or for that matter databases as no one will hire someone without many years of experience. In my area I can pull up a thousand IT jobs and 99.9% will want many years of experience. There is even a job open at my college for a networking specialist that no grad is qualified for!
I am currently volunteering at a nonprofit IT group. I am studying for the A+ exam, learning on my own PHP, MySQL, Java, and will be starting to learn VMWare. I have built many computers so I am good on the hardware front.
My only hope is to luckily get some type of technician/support job and go from there. That is my plan, just learn as much as I can in many areas and hopefully get lucky. I would also like to hear from some other people regarding this.

I have All in One CompTIA Certification Exam Guide by Mike Meyers, the eighth edition. This covers the new 220-801 and 220-802 exams. The 801 and 802 exams feature new hands on questions. You can still take the older exams up until August I believe which have only mulitple choice.
This is the one most people recommend. I am watching the videos at professormesser.com.
I plan on getting a book with mostly exam questions soon and then going back through the above book, especially the operating system parts, using my computer to go through the steps, as I am not as knowledgable in that area, especially with the command prompt.

Sorry, I don't know much about that book.
I have guitar for dummies. It didn't help me to play the guitar, but I think that is mostly because of my lack of musical talent.
