A+ and Network+

I'm just starting out on a joint MCSA/MCSE tutor led course. Would it be a good idea to broaden my studies and go for A+ and Network+ at the same time?
In general, A+ and Network+ are worthwhile credentials and should actually provide some useful background for your Microsoft studies. If you could start from scratch, I'd actually recommend doing A+ and Network+ first, before tackling the other topics. But since the MS stuff is already (or about to be) underway the answer to your question then becomes: "Only if you feel you can handle the workload of your Microsoft courses plus the A+ and Network+ material should you take them on in parallel. Otherwise, wait and do it later."
