    Just went to their site, and they seem to be another distant learning company... but strangely, the prices are now shown on the site, you have to call for details... :blink (not sure whether that is normally in these cases)

    IMO for me, that alone i dont like...

    Basically a while back I mentioned about getting MS qualifications at work - they weren't keen on sending me on expensive courses etc and so I mentioned I would be willing to do home study.

    I looked at a number of the home study courses on line and plumped for affordable training after chatting to the sales people.

    Basically they provided the courses in multiple cds and sybex books - the cds are video tutorials from american Microsoft tutors and they provide 2nd edition sybex books.

    As regards prices they can be bargained with, I managed to get full MCSA, MCSE, MCDBA for Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 for about £2500.

    Basically the courses I got were as follows :

    70-210 Win 2K Pro
    70-215 Win 2K Svr
    70-216 Win 2K Network Infr
    70-217 Win 2K Dir Svcs Infr
    70-219 Design Win 2K Dir Svcs
    70-228 Install & config SQL 2K
    70-229 Design & Impl SQL 2K

    70-290 Manage 2003 Svr Environ
    70-291 Impl & Man Svr 2003 Netw Infr
    70-293 Planning Svr 2003 Netw Infr
    70-294 Planning Svr 2003 AD Infr
    70-270 Windows XP
    70-298 Designing Security Svr 2003 Netw

    And the books with the cds.

    I have found them to be pretty good but its all personal choice.

    Is there any way to legally lend a 'backup' of one of the cds for people on the forums to try out ??? :rolleyes:

    I VERY much doubt it as this will be subject to copyright laws.

    You paid £2500 for your course but this doesnt inlcude the exam fees as i found out. They didnt mention this on the phone that exams were not included and trying to register for a website to book your exam was so hard to do online just kept looping around i wasnt impressed
