    Hi

    I am 28 and would like to get into IT.

    I got a BTEC Diploma in Computer Studies whilst at college, but never did anything further.

    I found this forum whilst searching for information on IT courses. After reading various posts, I have decided to try for my A+ Certification via the self study route.

    So you will see me lurking around the A+ forum!

    David.

    I guess it depends on the person you are - i know when I did my A+ it was far simpler just getting down to what was important for the exam - most of the stuff in there you never use. its just a few letters to get your foot through the employment door. Im a strong believer in bootcamps personally they have really worked for me.

    Its a slightly higher financial commitment - but I believe it gives you more of a drive.

    I've seen far too many bootcamps use "unauthorized study materials"... meaning, braindumps. I avoid endorsing any unless I know the instructor personally.

    EDIT: ...and now that I know your personal opinion of braindumps, I feel quite justified in my disdain of bootcamps. :x

    Hello David and Welcome to CF 8)

    Like so many and including myself, I found CF while searching on google for some feedback on IT courses.

    Well done for choosing the self study route.

    Have a look under the A+ section in the forum you will find tons of advice and information on studying A+

    Also have a look at Zimbo's thread on How to study

    Good luck with your studies:biggrin
