    HI, i've just been offered the A+ with N+ this will cost me £2500
    over 3 years with skilltrain/Scheidegger, but was wondering if it would not be a better idea for me to do the CCNA course at my local college at a cost of about £145 instead of the N+?

    And has anyone on here done the course with Scheidegger if so could you give me your views on Scheidegger? Or possible cheaper alternatives.

    I agree with Phoenix. £2500 is a lot of money for A+ and Network+

    I got that course for £3500...maybe it's cos I'm female :rolleyes:

    The N+ verus the CCNA depends on your experience with computers. If you have a good understanding of networking then go straight to the CCNA, if you don't, I would go straight on to it - the CCNA is quite specialised, and assumes that you already have a good working knowledge of networking.

    Also, if you just want to go in to computing in general, I'd again mention CCNA being specialised - it's Cisco orientated, and might not be the best 'general' qualification to get. But other places should offer N+ for a cheaper rate if you don't want to pay Scheidegger prices.

    A+/N+ is really not worth £2,500 (And that probably exludes exams). And frankly you're better off self-studying the material and coming onto forums like this with anything you have a problem understanding than having to rely on Scheideggers tutors. I've phoned them up once and all they told me was to go read the course material again. The N+ course I did was also based on the N10-002 objectives, no updated suplements to be found on their website as the letter they sent me when I phoned them up about exams said.
