So I'm almost ready to take my A+ exam and figured I'd move right onto the Network+, to give me something to build on before moving onto CCNA/CCND.

I have a book for Photoshop CS and was interested in teaching myself how to use the program well for some personal use, and possibly some freelance design in the future.
