    Hi everyone

    I'm planning on starting A+ and was wondering if anyone has been to or hear anything about Bickenhall College of Computing (http://www.bcoc.co.uk/) and London School of Computer Education (http://www.lsce.co.uk). Both are about £600 for a 6 week course which includes course materials and mock exams. Not too sure which one to go to, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    £600 is a lot for a 6 week course, how many hours a week?
    Does this include both exam fee’s, registration & books to study with??

    You will find that a lot of Colleges in the UK now run PC Maintenance Courses that lead to CompTIA A+ and normally take 1 or 2 terms to do, cost roughly under £250.

    Also some colleges also offer Cisco IT Essentials I.
    IT Essentials I will cost you roughly from £190 to £252. Add a good A+ Book like ExamCram2 A+ 2 Ed @ £24.99.

    I have found that most local colleges offer the added services of being able to use college pc's to study on & also subject library books.

    I've heard of them and, against the advice of two of my colleagues who have also been with them, I decided to enroll for a course.

    Both of my colleagues came from overseas to 'Study in London' but in turn got poor service overall. On the first day I got in there, I could see what they mean. For LSCE it is only about getting students in and taking their money.

    My advice is to study at home even if it means paying a bit more to get your own training kit. The amount of money you are going to spend at LSCE will get you nothing. Well, actually, you might get a TestKing exam from the trainer to ensure you can pass the exam to compensate for his incompetence.

    LSCE is not worth it.

    Hello, if your doing the a+ then the best method is to self study, which you can do for very low cost with a text book and using Professor Messer's Free 220-70x CompTIA A+ Training Course | Professor Messer - CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+, Certification Training

    £600 is a hell of alot for something you can do for about £150 on your own, or if you need structure I know a guy that offers the course for £300, with text books mock exams ect.

    The great thing about self studying is that you can study when you want, also you can do as little as an hour a day.
