    Hello everyone :)

    i have been interested in computing since i was really young (now almost 22, so i suppose still young to some ..). but, i have no practical experience in the industry, only what i have managed to teach myself with an old computer and many new ones over the years, but mostly just on the hardware side.

    i have decided thats its time to turn this hobby of mine, into something more. I am going to try self-study for the CompTIA A+ at 1st, so i will be able to gain valuable experience.

    long term, i would love to get the MCSE, but i understand with out experiance, that qualification alone is useless, so just the A+ for now.

    i will be ordering 3 books next week and getting started right away.

    - PC Technician Street Smarts: A Real World Guide to CompTIA A+ Skills
    - CompTIA A+ Complete Study Guide, Deluxe Edition: Exams 220 601/602/603/604
    - A+ Certification All-in-One Exam Guide, Sixth Edition

    anyway, it's nice to meet you all, and i look forwards to getting to know you all better

    Regards,
    Dominic
