    Welcome to CF!

    Just a peace of advice, do the self study method. You'll save yourself so much money in the end.

    Also MCSA is for someone who already has experience in the industry. You should start with A+ and Network+ or MCDST and get some experience before attempting MCSA.

    Good luck with the studies.

    Hi & welcome to CF :)

    Good luck with your course, at the end of the day everyone has to choose their own method of study.

    Hi Welcome

    You dont need a course to get certs, and as said above if you get your MCSA without any job experience it will likley be harder to get a job, because Microsoft say that you should have 6 - 12 months experience before going for it.

    Advent wont tell you that as they are just after your money.
