    Who'd have thought that a simple google search for a forum on IT Certification would have unearthed this little goldmine.

    My reason for joining??
    I applied foir a helpdesk position with a well known company and thanks to the sheer volume of experience I have with dealing with technical (non IT mainly) faults and queries I was invited for an interview. Unfortunately I loused up the technical test and was kindly shown the door :( . It did however open up an absolute hunger for knowledge and they said I could reapply after 3 months so here I am. Be gentle.

    That's the plan. Am thinking that seeing as the job was for Technical Support Specialist that a MCDST may be the best way to start off.

    Hiya. Welcome aboard. So I guess you're looking at the A+ then? Good luck with the future reapply and I'm sure you'll ace it next time!

    I have the same experience as you, one failed interview but only just I was told so now I want it properly. someone told me to start with A+ but there's so many certs out there I need someone who has already followed the path to help us out!

    see you on the forums

    Hi Sophocles :)

    Interesting - I'm working in Tech Support for a Glasgow company at the moment. If you want, drop me a PM and tell me who it was with - if it was with us, I might be able to get you a second chance sooner rather than later ...
