    Hi everyone.Been scouting around on here for a while now and would just like to say that the advice handed out on here seems pretty good.Im at the usual crossroads i.e do i do self study or go with a distance learning course but wont annoy you with that.Im looking at studying CompTIA A+,MCSA,MSCE and possibly Security+ and MCDST.Any advice would be a little Brucie bonus as to which order to do them in which are easier etc.Hope to hear back from you.:rolleyes:
    Cheers

    Welcome, the general order for them would be A+, N+, MCDST, MCSA, MCSE. These are gradually getting harder, the more ya do.

    Thanks for replying.I thought that was the general route to take but wasnt too sure.I would just like to ask if £1500 sounds reasonable for distance learning as i have spoken to Computeach and some of the other big boys and they wanted the shirt off my back and for me to bend over with the prices they were asking i nearly fell through the floor when they told me.They should wear masks and stripey jumpers!.Anyway does £1500 sound ok?Really want to get started with all this asap.Hope to hear from you soon.

    Cheers

    Hallo
    Just a thought how about trying out for the open university , having qualified for a degree in computers i found the courses very interesting and informative to the point that i have been studding for about 8 years the cost of the courses are well sign posted and help with cost of equipment and materials may be given from the government also if you are in the low wage bracket you may get a grant to cover the cost of the course . Hope this helps

    Stumpy,

    Hi and welcome to the forum. :)

    If you are *new* to IT, aim for the A+ or MCDST. :thumbleft

    hi stumpy, I don't what cost is like over there. But from my exp of going to school for these courses, it not worth going in debt for A+ or N+. I actuall ended up learning more and doing more hands or at my kitchen counter with my better half running around yelling "Now what the hell is this part for":biggrin Bless his heart he was a good guy though those 15 months. And by the time you get though studying for those 2 you won't think a thing about study the rest on your own. Unless as paddy mention you can get a grant for it. Good luck with your studies and welcome to CF.
