I tried to get a Network Tech job at a school district but got blind sided by the amount of Mac based systems that they work with. I have all Windows based experience and have my A+/Network+ certs but the Mac part really killed my qualification.
I would like to be able to combat that requirement the next time an open job position at a school district comes up.
Would being a ACSP be a good solution? It requires only to take the Mac OS X Support Essentials v10.6 (Prometric exam: #9L0-403) exam.
Unfortunately I don't own a Mac and can't afford one at this moment.
How would I prepare for this exam? And/or how different would it be compared to taking the CompTIA certs?
