    Welcome to the forum. I don't know them but I've learned myself at home and its cost no where near that. Not even close. Jim

    Hello "Forum Virgin"!

    Before you get acquainted with us here, you better wash off that "lube" you have there, because that company mate, is "popping your cherry"!

    You can learn by yourself, and if you know which things to buy, I reckon you can spend around 100 pounds in books and course materials, and pass some nice exams there.

    Oh, and welcome! :p:twisted::D

    get the books, read them practice what you have learned then take the exams.

    You take the exams at vue test ceneters for compTIA exams you register with www.pearsonvue.com and you will find your nearest test centres on their sites.

    If you are doing Microsoft exams you do exactly the same but you register with www.prometric.com

    Hi and welcome aboard.

    If you let me (the forum) know what you would like to learn about, we can point you in the right direction.

    If it's the A+, there is already loads of advice on here already (which can apply to the other starter stuff).
