    best regards

    Hi and Welcome Andy :)

    Have a nose around the A+ forum - there's already a wealth of advice on there about free resources that others have posted about. I would definitely suggest supplementing your existing materials with the Cramsessions guide (free at the mo, I believe). They are a great asset towards the end of your studies.

    HTH :)

    Hi Andy, I've recently taken up the MCSE: Security course with Computeach, I'm currently doing the short IT fundamentals course which you probably had to do to before going on to the A+.

    As for Computeach being a good choice, I'm happy with them so far, their course materials are good. The onyl thing I don't like is their student website, it's a quite pants and the forums are a bit on the rubbish side. Their forum and chat also goes too far with the 'censoring' of swearwords. You can't say bloody, it just appears as ---- and you can't say bugger or arse, which is a pain for programmers in the chat when they mention debugger and parse!

    Hi Andy, welcome to CF.

    As you have already been advised take a look around the A+ Forum, and Mike Myers is definately the man for A+ stuff.

    Greetings, Andy. Welcome to CertForums. Glad you made it here, mate. If you haven't already, check out the A+ and Microsoft forums here as well as the Training forum. They all contain good information and chances are that a lot of your questions have already been answered. Also, don't forget to check out our articles section. Lots of good technical tidbits to be found there. Cheers. :)
