Concerning the cert vs degree debate, I'll offer my personal experience. When I lost my job 2 years, I went on several interviews afterward. I would always ask whether my associates or certs (A+ Net+ MCP) mattered. Most said that they viewed the certs better b/c they applied directly to that company.

If you're considering going to a TechSkills or New Horizons to get some certs, be careful. These places tout that you can be MSFT certified in 6 months. Maybe, but in my experience, you'd have to be very skilled at note taking and retain information very easily.
