    Hi All,
    Was recommended that I introduce myself on here before i start posting so i thought i would resepct the sites wishes and do so. :-p

    Had a thourough read through the site before registering and it seemed like the users have a lot of knowledge about sprecific exmas.
    I am already working as a IT engineer but i am lacking relevant qualifications but have plenty of experience. I am working towards getting N+ certified ASAP then move onto getting MCSA certified.

    Hi & welcome to CF :)

    If you did the A+ inconjunction with the Network+, both those exams together count as an elective for the MCSA credential.

    Hi all, Thanks for the welcomes :)

    Could you please share with me some helpful links, practice tests or maybe recommend particular study guides that people have had some joy with in the past. Test is going to be the N+

    I have had a look on previous thread and seem to see Mike myers study guides, sybex and i wanted to buy the N+ for dummies because it seems quite light hearted and fun to go through before taking it really serious.

    What would your thoughts be?

    I've bought the Meyers and the Sybex so far- I used both of the materials for the A+ and they both helped in different ways. This might be worth a look.

    How does that work? What do you mean by 'inconjunction with'? As in - taken them both, or taken them simultaneously with one eye on each test computer? :P

    I'm actually interested now, because I've been passing my MCDST practise tests, and think I might progress sooner than I thought. :)

    Yeah, MCDST or A+ and N+ count as the MCSA elective.
