    Havent been on for a while, but last week I passed both my A+ Exams, and Network+ with the help of www.trainingcamp.co.uk.

    I am so chuffed with myself, now its time to look for a job. Any advice on CV's and stuff would be very much appreciated.

    No I enrolled late, and got a discount.

    But some of the guys on the course did manage to knock them down a bit as well.

    I would recommend it, its very hard work. I think it helped me because I had already started self studying the A+, but had no knowledge of Networking.

    Cheers, No thats fine mate, it was £1700+ vat, I know its a lot of money but I think I have explained on a previous post that I am off work with a ruptured achilles at mo, and had started the A+ self studying, but to get the Network+ as well is a real bonus.

    All I need to do now is get a job.

    Incidently there were some guys down there studying for there MCSE and someone said that if you get that you can really command the wages. But I have mate in IT who lives near me and he said "not round here mate", has anyone got any views on the MSCE certificate?

    That is a fair price for 2 weeks of classroom training. Did you have to pay extra for the exams?

    My personal view on the MCSE is a) you need a domain to *play with yourself* and to be in the industry.

    Good luck with the job hunting :thumbleft

    Just my 2p

    i was having a peek at the prices, and saying what they give you in return, aswell as tutor led courses, i honestly believe its not bad... looks like a decent venue aswell, nevertheless hope you get better, and hope that you do find a placement... Well done mate...

    Great Venue and the food was out of this world.

    Boyce-the exams are all included, but retakes are extra which fortunately I didnt have to do.
