    Haven't heard of them before. What else do you get for your dosh. You should be looking for study materrial, exam fees, technical support, employment help and other stuff that the others will say.

    Find out what books they use and look on amazon at the reviews for the book. Some of the larger, dare i say it, PC Worlds have books. Pop into there and have a look see at the book. This is important as it is your main learning tool, you need to make sure that you can get on with the way it's written.

    For £3.5K you should be getting at least the first exam paid for.

    Anywaygood to see you on the boards. Why not post in the New Members Section and tell us a bit about yourself. [​IMG]

    Don't you think that 25 days is a little bit short for MCSE 2003?

    Interquad is top of the line
    brilliant facilities, top instructors, very qualified, done properly
    it is not some run of the mill training providor run out the back of someones flat, its the sort that employers send you to, where moneys not the problem, quality is

    I myself am likely to do my CCA and CCEA with interquad, along with my HP ASE (Proliant) they dont offer the variety of StorageWorks courses, probably due to equipment requirements

    i havnt used them personally for a number of years, but never had a problem with them

    they are expensive
    but thats what you expect to pay at top of the line providors like InterQuad, Sprint and other big names

    good luck if you go for it :)

    basically the cost of courses at places like that tend to run about 1500 for a 4 day course

    thats the average

    im doing a 2 day MSA1000 SAN course thats 600 (non interquad)

    and my CCA is 1450 at interquad
