    Hi, You've found the right place! :D

    Depends if you are self motivated or not, some poeple need face to face stuff others don't.

    Give the self study a try and save your self some money.
    Plenty of poeple here to help you who have done A+.

    You could even find a study partner, somebody here through this forum.

    The only cost is books which you'll need to buy anyhow.
    My A+ cost £88.00 + exam fee which was for books ( 2nd hand of ebay) and an exam prep tests.

    Hi welcome

    I am currently self studying for the A+

    All you need is CompTIA A+ certfication All in one exam Guide 6th edition By Mike Myeres and PC Technician Street Smarts by James Pyles and a computer you can practice stuff on i.e one from a junk shop or recycling centre would do.

    The cost of my studies has been around £80 including the comp I got all thats left to pay is the exams when I get round to doing them.

    I understood, "MCSE", "training centre in India", "cheap", "had a bash", "party harder", and "passed all my 7 modules", and knew all I needed to know about the quality of training she got. :dry

    If anyone thinks it's a good idea to go to India to a "training centre" to become an instant MCSE, you need to sit down with one of our counselors here at CertForums and have a nice, loooong discussion.
