    :DCan i just say, im so glad to have found this site have read alot of threads and found it informative. thanks.

    I know im new but have a question burning inside.....

    A+ cert. could anyone advise if i would be outta my depth studying this from books and practical practice or is it advised i pay 290 pounds for a cd and what they say is an online tutor to complete the course.

    i studyed it in the years when the internet was getting of the ground and a fast pc and a 286 processor but love tinkering..

    any advice would truly help...

    Yes self study all the way, do not pay any money to a rip off place that will just tell you to read some books anyway.

    CDs can help but you learn better by reading and doing.
