now thats all fine and dandy but most help desk jobs i see out there require an A+ and MSCE cert.
are these good to get for a wannabe network administrator?
all the IT tech support is moving to India nowadays so Im thinking if I am wasting my time?
Frustration is setting in. It seems like all I am doing is spending money for tuition and supplies, and not even getting anything in return.
I hear burger king is hiring

The A+ and Network+ certs are certainly not requirements for any Administrator. The fact is that most Administrator's start off as technicians, repairing and upgrading Pc's, picking up valuable experience for the future.
At this stage, the A+ and Net+ will certainly prove useful, and since from what I understand, your just starting out, it would be a good idea to sit for them.
Personally, I believe that the exams are very easy and wouldn't require more than 2 months if you study on a daily basis, but it would also depend on you current level of knowledge and how fast you can absorb the material.
Closing, whichever way you look at it, I wouldn't call it a waist of time or money, as they will prove useful at some point in the future.
