    Hi guys.. Im thinking of bringing the lab partners forum back and running but first i wanted to know, how many people are studying for a MCP/MCSA or MCSE?

    If you could post what you are currently studying and if you would be interested in doing labs using CF, MSN messenger and if possible vmware (not required but would be nice to have!)

    Also if you are interested in helping out? Im thinking of doing the actual labs on weekend with all the preperation during the week..

    Hope to hear from you all!!! 8)

    Zim,

    I am hoping to nail the N+ in the next few weeks (honest :biggrin ) and then will be moving on to 70-270, so if i can help you out it will be helping me out too.
    Let us know what you decide.

    Zim,

    I am hoping that with the knowledge gained from here A+ and N+ it won't be too long! How long would you guess at?

    well i started in nov and wrote on 31 jan.. okay i got an 800 cause i know i was a little shabby on security... but i think the a+ and n+ will have little to do with the xp.. its not just learning an OS its making it work for you in a corporate envirment..

    @Everyone... well since alot of people are starting out.. i was thinking of starting up by setting up our enviroment.. a domain controller and/or member server with one client... (dont worry if the terms are new!!) if you can get hold of vmware (dont worry if you have never used it- i think im mastering it and so will you!) or if you dont mind and have the space get actual machines..

    PS out actual labs will take place in the Lab partners forum so keep it in mind! 8)

    Hi Guys,

    My A+ is booked for three weeks time after a 4 day workshop at NITLC (I can defer the exam but I think I'll be OK :unsure ) then it's N+ and MCSE.

    Count me in on the labs (although someone will have to explain to me how they're going to work :oops: ). I have VMWare up and running.

    Cheers.

    EDIT: for those that want more information on how this will work HERE and HERE

    the one thing we are lacking is ideas from you guys.. i dont want to dicate what we do so please feel free and we can all conlude together what we want to do... ill start with the lab setup so we on a common ground then start from there...
