    Im really trying to gain people's opinion of Cisco IT essentials 1, i have just passed my course this evening after 5 month's with a score of 89.3% , but reading from the course material they say this is more of a precursor to help you to pass the Comptia A+. which in the original college prospectus they said they would be running the A+ ,but when i attended the open day they said they would be running the Cisco ( IT Essentials 1 )course instead which they stated is the same course but in name only. I am know looking to take the Cisco IT Essentials 2 which is again meant to mirror the Compti N+ course.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Passing the Cisco essentials courses won't qualify you with an A+, that is a different qualification entirely. Not that Cisco's courses are any less than an A+ but they are most certainly not the same thing from what I've read about them. From what you are saying your college is perhaps giving somewhat misleading information which I would take up with your tutor to be honest.

    simongrahamuk Hmmmmmmm?

    IT Essentials 2 is closer to the Server+ course than the Network+.

    I have done both courses, found them to be very worthwhile. Had they not been part of my foundation degree tho I would probably have just bought a book and given them a miss. 8)

    IT Essentials 2 is based towards goin for Server+ or Linux+.

    Network+ CCNA Semester 1 would be a good start.
