    I recently decided that doing the A+ course from a book is all well and good, but to really understand it, you need to get hands on experience!

    to that end, i decided to sign up for an HN unit course called "Hardware: Installation and Maintenance" to bolster my practical skills. i chose this course because A) if i want an HNC (which i do) i have to do it, and B) because it will specifically overlap with the A+, meaning its little extra work, but benefits both!

    so now i am doing my A+, and an HNC part-time in computing. :eek:

    You'll gain some really great practical experience from that course if it has hands on. I did a City and Guilds course when I first got into hardware and from that learned a great deal of foundation knowledge that I use now everyday. Best of luck and keep us posted on your progress.

    Si :)

    I started with the A+ and am now working towards a B. Eng and maybe a M. Eng all to gain the Chartered Engineer qualification. :p

    thanks guys. btw, i spoke to the woman who is dealing with the apprenticeship i mentioned a while back. apparently i made it through 2 rounds of screening, and they want to give me an aptitude test!!!!! great!

    the only down side, is that they've been told to put a hold on the proceedings for a while, so im in limbo for a few months! grrrrr
