Why? Because all three will earn you credits. Slicing basically gets free credits from slicing box nodes and the other two let you harvest mats from any strong droid or beast you kill as well as gather from nodes.

While you level, you can use mission rewards and loot drops combined with planetary comms to gear up and keep saving credits. Your only credit costs will be skills while you level and when you hit 55 you should be sitting on a tidy sum that will let you gear out pretty easily for end game.
I could not agree with this more. If this is your first character, just get three gathering professions if you are a sub and sell the mats. You will bank and be set on future character's.
