    Stay away from them.That is my point about this. I did my A+ for around £600 and that includes PC to practice with, exam fees,books,video etc.MCDST cost me £300 including the exams and selftest software.
    Anyway just search the forum before you sign anything.Good luck.:D

    Considering you don’t work in IT yet I would advise that you don’t sign up for a string of certs that will take years to complete the right way.

    Why not start the A+ (plenty of books available) and see if IT and studying is for you.

    This is great advice. The MCSA, MCSE, CCNA, and higher-level certifications will not do you any good without experience. In truth, being overcertified can make it MORE difficult to get your first IT job.
