    Well my contract finishes today and I doubt I'm going to get another contract before xmas so am invoking my unemployment insurance over xmas so looks like I'll have a break at last. Booked myself on a course linked to deploying Windows 7 (70-686). I've done loads of rollout's on XP but never Windows 7 which I believe is very different. I want to see what it's like compared to self study. Managed to get the 5 day course for just under £600 with a very well known training provider in January. Looking forward to it and hopefully will give me a taste for my VCP course later in the year. Just need to get my Xenapp exam passed in the next 2 weeks and possibly squeeze in 70-680 self study before my course. Here's to a better 2011 and fingers crossed a full time job :biggrin

    Sorry I can't as they stipulated that I don't mention how much I paid (I know I have but not who it's with) and I don't know who is lurking on the forums. All I will say is haggle on price. You don't ask you don't get.

    Cheers for the advise Simon going to get my Citrix exam done in the next week or so and then sink my teeth into prep for this course.
