    Hi everyone, I'm 23 years old and after working in a call centre and a brief stint in accountacy (both of which i hated) i really want to try for an IT career so just thought i'd sign up to the site for some info and say hello. I've read some of the other posts and decided to go for an A+ self study course but just got a few questions for anyone who has done it before;

    --Would you recommend doing another cert like N+ at the same time as A+ or would that be too much? (I have an A-level in computing and did a couple of computer modules when i did my degree which included some java programming so i have a half decent basic PC knowledge.)

    --Is it worth me trying to get hold of an old PC to open up for the hardware section of A+?

    any advice much appreciated thx

    Ian :slidedrin

    No, that would be too much, do one then move onto the other.

    Yes, definitely, or more. Also, try and get hold of a legit copy of Windows 98 and Windows 2000 as these operating systems are also covered in the A+
