    just had a phone call from these people. I was just wondering what they are like and is it worth the money in regards to other study/training methods. Anybody on here trained with them? Anyone got any expereinces with them?

    This type of question has come up several times. Do a search and you will have a choice of threads to read.

    Hi there joker, i actually phoned them and had one of ther blokes come rounds, this was over a year ago now. Basicaly he told me everything i wanted to hear which is good but also it sounded too good to be true in my opinion.

    Im now taking the UNI option, as thats been reccomended by a lot of people. Some good people to speak to on this forum would be Boyce, Zimbo, D faktor and Bluerinse, although a lot of people in this forum are great at giving advice, these seem to elaborate more and give you another perspective to go from.

    If ive forgotten about anybody im sorry damn SGUK springs to mind lol

    I think I will stick to my original plan and do self study and college course on the A+. At least this way I can study at home and also get the hands on experience at college.

    Which by all acounts will be considerably cheaper than computeach and more benificial.

    Hi Joker

    Zimbo wrote an excellent help guide on home studying without going through a college or IT learning centre, that's exactly what I was going to do until I read this. It makes sense though, all you are really paying for is tutorial support, but places like this can answer anything you need

    The link is http://www.certforums.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=11894

    (I know you can probably post threads instead of links, haven't worked out how yet, sorry)

    Thanks for the advice. I am waiting till september/october or whenever it is that the new A+ all in one book comes out. I think I read somewhere that the current A+ exams stop on the 31st december. So I might as well wait and do the new exams next year.

    In the UK the current exams stop next March.

    There is a timeline page on CompTIA's site that shows this.
