Hello. I've been posting on a couple forums just trying to get as much feedback as I can regarding materials I can use to better prepare myself for classes/exams I may be taking in the future. I've gotten some college certifications in computer networking roughly 7-8 years ago and the books that I have are from Odom but they're a bit dated. I was considering picking up his newer books but decided I'd see what everyone else recommends.
Another thing I'd like to ask about is which entry level positions should I be aiming for if my area of interest is in network administration? I'll be 30 this year and I've been seriously considering a career change from something non IT related (due to physical limitations growing on me), so I have no work related experiences. I'm not computer illiterate or anything and picked up most of what I was taught back in college, so although I'm a little late, I feel like with some reading material along with some class sessions, I could probably pick up where I left off hopefully. On the subject of being "late" though, as long as I'm willing to put the effort in, what are the chances of someone my age being successfull in this particular field?
Would love to read everyone's feedback. Thanks!
