    Hey all,

    Just joined this morning...what a brilliant site!

    I was made redundant in March and have since started training in various courses hoping to break into a new area of IT. I passed the Microsoft exam 70-620 (Installing & Configuring Vista Client) in early June and started studying for the CompTIA A+ exam about a month ago.

    My question is how long did it take or how long is it taking for people to get through this book (Mike Myers Exam Guide 6th Edition)? Somedays I do 2-3 hours, otherdays I just do an hour. I'm not even halfway through it yet and am just wondering how other people got on? How long in weeks\months has it taken other people?

    Cheers!

    To answer your question:

    How long is a piece of string?

    There is no fixed time limit, you study until you feel comfortable and ready to take the exams.
