    Hello there.

    Im currently working as an IT Support Technician, and am looking at getting my certification in MCDST and then upgrading to MCITP - Enterprise Support.

    Just looking for some infor here on the best way to learn the courses.

    I have phoned around a few places offering training etc.. but all with prices between £690 and £1000..
    .. Im just wondering really if its better to just get the Microsoft self study training kits for the respective courses, learn myself, and then take the tests.. (therefore saving hundreds of pounds in the process)..

    ?

    thanks!

    Hi Welcome:)

    Most people on here self study, so they save money by only buying the books and paying for the exams.

    the more experience in the working world the easier self study will be.
