    Hi Guys

    I am very interesting to do comptia a+ course.. i was wondering what is best way to get start...
    e.g. self study or training course (paying £1300 with all the materials e.g. books, 24/7 online help n so on)

    and is it self study better than training course or is training course better than self training..and why

    can you give me some advice???plz

    many thanks
    Bhav

    Personally, I'd go for the self study route. That works fine for me. It certainly wouldn't hurt to get yourself a study guide book (it's probably going to cost you around £30) and start reading. If you find yourself getting really stuck with it then perhaps you might want to look at doing a course.

    There are plenty of posts on this subject. Still, I will give the same advice I always give: I highly recommend self study.

    For all the reasons why, there are about a billion threads on self study vs. training providers on this forum for your viewing enjoyment.

    Just realised, this is the 3rd or 4th time you've asked pretty much the same question, with pretty much the same answer in each case.

    Is there something you don't like about the answer :twisted:

    Hiya, I made the mistake of going with a training provider and paying 3 grand for material that would just scratch the surface of what you need to know for the exam, self study is much cheaper and you can go at your own pace! I only have a year to complete the mcse which is making me rush it basically,
    hope this helps!
