    Hi Again, I'm an IT Support Officer at Uni, but have been doing recent work as a Systems Development Officer. I've only just starting my MCSE training recently, have put it off for a while due to other commitments but it's full steam ahead now.

    I've some training material from CBT Nuggets i'm going through at the minute and it's really good. I'm currently going through the 70-290 training and it's all pretty much what i do every day now at the minute but we'll see how it gets towards the end.

    If anyone is in a similar boat and whats to look at the material i've got then let me know and i'll send you a link to download.

    Wouldn't that be against CBTNuggets licensing?

    I think it is important to remember that products like CBT Nuggets, Learnkey and Testout only exist because there is a market out there for this type of home based self study.

    If people simply download the products without paying for them, then in the future they may not exist.

    This is actually a multi-license copy that was purchased by my University but i'm certain there's only me that uses it, you're probably right though - i'll just say that i'd recommend the product as it's very intuitive and the trainer James Conrad is good at communicating with the viewer.

    I can't agree with this enough - rep given. Once the legit companies are gone, who will people steal from then?

    Support the companies that provide you excellent training materials... ensure that they'll be around the next time you need excellent training materials. :thumbleft
