    Where would you be without Certforums? How much of a positive effect has this website had?

    I reckon that I would now be the proud possessor of an MCSA and CCNA, without any experience, and bemused as to why I didn't have a job.

    I also suspect that I'd be several thousand pounds lighter having listened to the guff from a certain training provider :dry.

    On the other hand, you may be £1000's lighter but the TP may have found you a job.

    With the right TP this could have happened, but you'll never know. :D

    The OP has made the right choice, the "finding a job" part is down to the individual, not a TP IMO.

    Yes I agree hence the 'may'

    I have worked with a few that gaurentee a job, what a load of b**locks!

    With the right TP, they can help, but the individual must also put some effort in.

    Possibly practising the ancient art of ninjitsu, or riding a bmx off a mountain with a parachute on, either of those or sat in work organising work for my team whilst checking CF to alleviate my boredom. . . . . . but more likely the first two

    If CF didn't exist, I'd either be Frazer Macenzie or James Thornton.
    Getting rich and laughing my ass off.

    Certainly a good few £ lighter as I would have taken my PC to repair shops for stupid things like replacing a RAM stick.

    Possibly fighting crime in some sort of spandex outfit, alternating with a cape, and without a cape depending on how cold it was outside

    Guys I know this is a great place to share & discuss. I thought it would be nice if we could share the other great forums especially dealing with certifications so that every body can share knowledge.
