    So, hello.

    I find myself after 10 years within IT - from Developer to Intranet Designer to Desktop/Server analyst that I am out of work.

    MCP/CCNA/Network+ all seem to be essential requirements to all but the more basic jobs.

    So in a nutshell, I am looking to get MCAD (MCSD at some stage) certified on c#.

    I have the training e-books and the software required.

    How much pain is this going to be? it looks as little as 120 hours can get the cert - any comments or reasons not to go the c# route.

    Thanks
    a Northern Bloke. :D

    May be if someone anwser the question he already asked might be a good start. :biggrin

    Welcome NB, I wish I could help you with that but it is past my skill level, I'm sure there is someone around here though that does know the anwser. Good luck with your studies.

    Hi and welcome to the forum. :D

    It all depends on how much work you put into the course. How good are you at programming? How quick do you pick up other languages? How good are your problem solving and logical thinking abilities? If theyre good, you might fly through the material and it won't seem like work at all, on the other hand.......if you do struggle with learning a new language and new concepts then the 120 hour estimate might be a bit too optimistic.
