Hi, I have recently decided that a career in IT is the way forward for me to hopefully get away from being 'mr. average' to being someone with prospects! however, i am unsure which is the best way to go about it. I am set on studying Microsoft Networking after talking with friends but i am not sure wether to study for it myself or to sign up to one of these 'home study companies' earlier this week i had a sales guy, from a company called computeach, come to my house to explain things, he said that the company would provide all the materials required such as software, studybooks, exam sits, in centre days and free exam resits if required, they also provide 'expert' support over the phone and study forums, another thing they provide is a careers centre where by they will aim to get me into a job within the IT industry within 6 months, this was particurlaly appealing to me because i wanted quick returns for my study, the price.....£3250 this is to study for IC3, CompTIA A+ and MCDST.
Does anyone know how much it would cost me to study for these exams myself and what sort of support is available.
A friend of mine who is studying cisco networking also recommended studying A+
your views on this is invalueable!
many thanks guys!
