Or is there a combination?
Certifications are only going to get you in the door. Then it's a lot of experiene that is going to get you the most money.
But if you are looking at getting some certifications security seems to be a hot one right now. CISSP
I guess it really depends on the job and the company. Just having a cert will not guarantee you a certain amount of money. Some companies look for people with certs, and I've seen jobs requiring certain certs to be considered.
I know a lot of people laugh, but the A+ is a good start which just shows you have basic computer knowledge (you have to start somewhere, right?). I'm trying to finish up my MCSE 2000 and then to 2003, but that is personally for me. I hope that in the future it will help me in getting another job with a few more bucks.
What kind of job are you looking for?
Just stop now. Basing what certs to get on how much money they will net you is totally against the reason they exist, and the reason that they are ruined to begin with.
Try picking something you like.
