    My name is Jacques, I have decided to get into network training to follow up a passion in life.
    I was going to sign up for the skills train course, but I found a better oppurtunity at my local college, so that's where I will be studying for a CCNA and a MCSE qualification.
    I have not started studying yet. My term will start after the summer holidays.

    Welcome to CF Jacques.

    I notice you have decided to jump in at the deep end, the MCSE and the CCNA combined will be an awful lot of learning ahead of you :ohmy

    In retrospect, I would have taken the MCSE step by step. Get the A+ N+ MCP or three, then MCSA, then think about whether or not I really want to get MCSE. Bear in mind that if you are not working with all the concepts taught in MCSE, then it is a waste of time and money. You really need to be able to put these things into practice, or you will become a paper MCSE which is pointless IMHO. Then think about whether or not Cisco hardware interests you. Personally routing bores me to death :D

    Welcome to the mad house! :biggrin

    I thought the same as you, about taking a college course, but then realised home study would be better, because I could try and earn some money in something else at the same time (me - I tend to drive a class 2 truck every-now-and-then). Last week I delivered some phone books by hand.

    I opted to obtain a career development loan for £2500. paid back at £70 per month over 2 years, by going with Skillstrain / Schiedegger.

    I have just finished the A+ part of the course (I only just realised it after reading this forum :oops: ) after 6 months of reading and taking weekly / chapter tests.

    (It takes me a week to do one chapter, take a test, email it to skillstrain, wait for reply, then either move onto the next chapter or re-take the chapter test again).

    As Bluerinse says, it's a lot of hard graft, or words to that effect. :eek:

    Little steps and more little steps. :blink

    My name is Elton and new to this forum.

    Am thinking of doing a CIW with some training provider but have not yet decided who to go with. I have great interest in web design and development.

    Any advice will be greatly received. :D
