    Well I'm 22 and still cant believe im 8 years away from 30 :cry:, lol where did all those years go, well anyways enough of the rambling - Ive finally decided that the support route is the path for me! after many different jobs I've decided to do something about it and put my geek knowledge to some use and get certified! I'm looking on you guys to give me some motivation which i seem to lack sometimes :oops:

    hi fellow geek!!

    welcome to the humble home for certification!! how much knowledge do you have for starters? (can you tell the difference between IRQ and DMA?) maybe it would be a good idea to start from the bottom like we all have (and are doing) with A+ (www.comptia.org) this will give you the fundamentals which you will use later on in support... from there you can go onto MCDST 8)

    I'll admit I don’t know every little detail about computers i know IRQ stands for Interrupt Requests and DMA stands for Direct Memory Access, I know alittle about each one.

    However I DO KNOW enough to be able to built a computer from scratch, install windows configure it and run it, troubleshoot a Network and troubleshoot most windows/software related problems.

    "You guys that have passed the 70 271 exam how long did it take to learn it??"

    Thanks for your advice

    Greetings, Leey2000k. Welcome to CertForums. Hope we can help you out in your pursuits. Keep in mind that motivational speakers and tapes aside, real motivation comes from inside you. If you don't generate the drive to achieve, no one else can do it for you. You are young and at a good position to start your career. Time to get busy. :)
