    ok, my paycheck is in WOOO! (sorry this is my first paycheck ever, i currently work for a local authority in england)

    now to the questions.

    Comptia A+ is changing in march, so i was wondering if the study books are avaliable? if so could i have the amazon.co.uk links to them please. the exam crams etc as well. :biggrin

    MCP - i also want to study this, what books are avaliable?

    MCAD C#.Net - what do i need to study this?

    sorry if the questions are answered already, my boss is on the ball today, and i think shes trying to catch me on the net. although its not like i haven't bloody finished my tasks, all thats left is DE which is droll and tedious, and not really needed. (piss poor systems design + piss poor ICT team (they destroyed the auto update somehow so we have to do it manually :x)

    The A+ was only change in 2006 (less than 2 years ago), I didn't know that it was going thru another update already, and I can't find any reference to a another change this year (see the A+ Calendar).

    You want to attain the MCP/MCAD. Do one professional MS exam and you attain the MCP status (provided you pass). To attain the whole MCAD, you can self study, go to evening classes (local college), attend a private training company program, or a combination of the above.

    Certifications: CITP, PGCert, BSc, HNC, LCGI, PTLLS, MCT, MCITP, MCTS, MCSE, MCSA:M, MCSA, MCDST, MCP, MTA, MCAS, MOS (Master), A+, N+, S+, ACA, VCA, etc... & 2nd Degree Black Belt

    It is? Do you have a link for that? On the normal cycle I wouldn't expect a change for some time, and there is nothing obvious on the CompTIA site about it.
    MCP is a generic term - applied to many certs. Which one specificaly are you going for?

    sorry what i meant was the exam is being switched in march i think from 2003.
    so the 2006 is relevant, good. and thanks for the info on MCP.

    unfortunatly i don't know what study materials i will need for MCAD.

    and after i had posted this topic i felt it was in the wrong place, so sorry for that.

    so now my question is, what study matierials do i need for MCAD, i have previously done some ASM, HLA, C#, C++ & Php.

    C# was used in Runuo, so not so much windows based, but instead used as a scripting language of sorts.

    Hi Welcome :)

    The A+ exams were switched to the new exams in the summer, there will be no other changes yet, probably not for a few years.
