I am wanting to earn a few certifications to supplement my Bachelor's degree and help me kick start my IT career. I would like to diversify a bit as well, so I am not looking in one specific field. Examples may be networking, database, operating systems, web programming, software programming, workstation support (hardware/software), server support, etc. What I am looking for here is recommendations or a summary of common in-demand certifications, and maybe a short description of each. Also, what steps do I need to take to become certified? Advice on how to study, recommended textbook publishers, the cost of the certification, how long it will take, what I can use it for, etc. would all be helpful information also. Thanks for your input!

It will be difficult to find and keep a list of certifications up to date and complete. I just checked http://www.mcmcse.com/othercerts.shtml and it does not have the Dell DCSE certifications listed. The best thing to do is after looking at a list like this is to visit the website for the certification itself to do some more research.
Good luck.

andrew_aj1 is correct - it is very difficult to keep a list of certifications up to date and complete.  The link I provided is the closest I had seen anywhere.  I do like the link provided by andrew_aj1 - very useful information and well organized.
