    RIght so after joining this forum so far it has helped me decide to self study for CompTIA A+ rather than use computeach (£5000 better off!) so I've got the books on the way to study but is there any tips on what I should also do to help me with my studying?

    In defence of some training companies....

    Advert workshops and tutors are very good... which is where the expense is.

    Workshops are excellent for beginners.

    I noticed that a lot of people that moan about advent pay then dont go to the workshops... which is madness.
    That's like buying a six pack of beer, drinking one and then throwing the rest away.

    just a note. I got the MIke Meyers AIO and the PC Technican streets and an old PC from a recycling centre all for the grand price of £80

    The PC Technician street smarts book has the exercises in it that you can practice on the junk PC which is quite cool.
