    Dude
    I've just ordered the book and i cant wait to start! I was going to try the TP way cause the job would pay for it but after reading some of the posts on here i've decided to go at it on my own!
    Take it easy!

    Me too =)

    PM your MSN so easier to communicate to those who want to study and share our thoughts.

    Hi everyone, will be starting at the end of the month (PAYDAY!) so if anyone wants to keep in touch, then feel free!

    Good luck all. Assuming you're all self studying - how long are you planning on taking?

    Good luck

    I have read the whole book by MM 6th edition but had to stop as I started the second half of my now finished CCNA course so, now I am back to the A+.
    Can all do it together. I am also planning on buying the boson Ex-Sim MAX as I have used for my CCNA and it is a valuable tool in this process, well worth the money.

    I think I might give A+ a try as well seeing as I've got the Network+ ans Security+ under my belt as well as many years of experience in building PC's. After all, a man can never learn too much =)

    I gather the MM AIO is the best study guide to get at the moment, right?

    It is indeed. The 6th edition is out for the 'old' 6xx exams, but the 7th edition doesn't appear to be out until March 2010.
