    Hey guys, I've given in and I'm asking the million Dollar question - What Training Provider do I use?

    I would like to achieve my Windows 7 Config and Enterprise Desktop Admin.

    I initially was going with Computeach, then I shopped about and decided to go with ITOnlineLearning - and now I've just found out about Lynda and Pluralsight - and they look great?

    I've looked at CBT Nuggets but I am interested in keeping costs down, has anybody used one of these Providers for the Courses I'm interested in please?

    self study for a fraction of the cost, post questions on forums, have discussions on forums

    I'm an ex Advent student and after that ordeal I can't imagine for the life of me why someone wants to spend 5 times (maybe more) as much going through a training provider instead of self studying

    That's my take on it anyhow! :) good luck in whichever path you choose

    I tried itonlinelearning once. There was a load of video of some guy who is no doubt highly expert in IT, but unfortunately is semi-literate at best. Has was just reading (haltingly) from Powerpoint slides, and it was impossible to learn from him.

    Haha - thanks Dangerpants :)

    Well I have decided to go with Pluralsight it's £29 per month, can be cancelled at any time - I think that will complement my Home Study.
