    Hi All,

    I have just been made redundant was an IT Manager and have 15 years of experience but my IT certs are very old and costing getting a new job so I would like to do a MCITP but I don't know who I should use to get my certs? :)

    Was thinking of using computeach has any one used then to get a MCITP?

    If not what company would you use?

    They are good but not enough on their own to prepare for the exams. You will still need to read the books and compliment it using technet articles if you need clarification. If the subject is new, then using CBT nuggets will give an overall tutorial, you can then hit the books to learn the details and goback to the CBT nuggets as a refresher.

    I've used a lot of the CBT Nuggets, found them very useful, but not a complete study solution. I've had to accompany them with the Microsoft books, and of course the hands on practise with VM's or whatever to actually have a play myself.
    So in other words - exactly as Spidey76 said above :)
