    Hi everyone, as the title says why is CIW still v.5? I had a salesman come around 2 years ago from skills train. I
    paid the deposit (50 quid) and recieved section materials there and then. Then thanks to forums like this I

    realised that 2700 was a ripoff so i cancelled the loan before first months payment. I intended to do self

    study and started to look for materials. eventually i got a new job and moved on to other things. ive kept the

    first section safe knowing it will come in handy and nows the time!


    my only query is why in such a rapidly changing industry has the course not been updated in 3 years? i think

    theres been 2 minor updates because on the footer of the pages mine says version 1.0 and ciwcertified says

    1.2 on there books on site. is this because the general theory is still the same and i just build on that with

    updates such as css / using cs3 etc? will i be ok using the version 1.0 folder for the first section? when i buy

    the second half that will be updated so i should be fine i think. i just need to get my hands on the second

    half now! will probably end up buying it all again anyway.

    the only really decent s s k's are the official ones arent they? i've emailed the c-cert'd to see if they have

    changed there policy and will post to u.k again because its 3 times cheaper. sorry for the long post but im sure this will help other potential ciw's.

    cheers guys this is a great forum! Gareth

    does no1 have an opinion on this then? no1 thinks that 3 years is way too long for a web syllabus update?

    I'm not a web guy so can't comment really but some courses don't change for years it depends on how much things have changed since exams/courses were introduced.

    Welcome to the forums :)

    Hi mate and thanks I actually browse the forums all the time just keep quiet. There's so much to read and take

    in never mind posting to! I suppose there hasn't been too much change to the theory behind it. I suppose it's good to get the cert then build on it with new knowledge.

    Thanks

    Oh brilliant, I haven't got that far yet. I have th CS3 suite so this will help me a lot at home (and obviously if I work for someone else). Could you just tell me do your books say '2005 Prosoft Training. All Rights Reserved Version 1.2'?

    ermm not on this one, on my last section, server administration, it had prosoft something in the footer, think it was 2007 tho.. the cs3 section is version 8.2.. pretty good this section 2bhonest just started it.. but id reccomend teaching yourself and practisin with the cs3 programs.. as they wil take agggesss to master, i have lots of video tutorials by lynda.com and total training plus a loada ebooks, if anyone wants any get in touch. :biggrin

    If you mean e-books of study guides that you'd buy in a bookstore, that'd be a violation of copyright law. There are several authors here who make their living off of their published writing... including me.
