From here, my eight-month plan is pretty hectic but fairly well filled-out:
November through January: study for LPIC-1 101. It doesn’t directly relate to my job, but I’d like to get some Linux certifications in there to balance out my Microsoft-centric resume. I would probably take this exam at the end of January.
January and February: study for 70-461. I might be able to do all of this in less than a month, given that it’s right in my wheelhouse. I’d expect to take this before the end of February.
February, March, and early April: study for 70-463. Of the three MCSA exams, this is my relatively weakest topic.
April and May: study for LPIC-1 102. That way, I can get my LPI-1 certification.
May through July: study for my CEH. Like I mentioned before, I think this is an introductory cert, and so given where I’m at now, there is some value in me pursuing it.
