    Hi - first found Cert Forms a couple of years ago and have finally taken the plunge and decided to change careers from banking to IT. Have worked in IT Service Management for a couple of years but for a long time have wanted to move into the technical side of IT and now is the chance - albeit a late start at 42!
    I am self-studying for the A+ and Network exams (full time from January) using the famous Meyers books and a basic home study lab (thanks to Cert Forums for all the threads and tips on this!) and hope to get into some kind of entry-level role over the next 3/4 months. Once I have the A+ exams will need to decide whether to progress on self-study or sign up with one of the training providers.
    Can feel a bit isolated with self-study when you don't know people in the industry and Cert-Forums seems a great way to find and keep in touch with like-minded people.
    If anyone is in the early stages of A+ and fancies buddying up for moral support/study get in touch. Similarly would be great if there are any members around West Yorkshire who might want to meet up "offline".
    Look forward to getting to know people and hopefully making it into the big world of IT!
