Is this prgram worth it?
Ok I've been considering actually going to get some certs under my belt before I start school. There is a local training center in my town called career quest which offers training and certification testing for A+, practical, MCDST etc. The tuition for the 9 month program is 15,000. My pell grant will cover a third of that leaving me with a 10k dollar balance. My question is, considering the other routes I could take (ie buying the books and studying on my own and paying for the tests), does paying the 10k for the schooling sound like a reasonable thing to do? And are there any advantages I don't know about for either that I should take into account?
