    Hi there everyone

    I started with skills train Almost a year ago (Yeah i know they aint too great!!!) After 9 months i decided to get some additional study stuff including the CBT nuggets videos and mike meyers A+ passport,

    I am taking to hardware section to the A+ exams and look to take the software say 2 months after around christmas. I have been studying for a long time and just need to pull things together,

    I have been doing the practice exams and they all have a high pass rate compared to the exam (I believe the pass rate in the UK is 515 am i correct)

    I am worried about the exam as it cost a bomb and i don't really want to have to fork out all that money again!!

    Any tips people ???

    to be honest I know exactly what you are talking about, I had to pay a lot to get my a+ but you know something you are investing in your self, not someone else and if you know that you really like this field why not do it, and a+ alot of people do it, its a good entry level cert

    yeah i defo agree its worth it the only worry is that i can't really afford to fail i am doing a gap job n money is tight

    after i will go on to take the network + exam ( I was nearly ready to take it but thought i had better get my A+ first so a couple of months more on N+ afterwards)
