Best Boot Camp for Server 2008 EA-urgent requirement

araczekaraczek Member Posts: 7 ■□□□□□□□□□
Hi all,

I have a requirement to get certidied ASAP. I have been reading (since January) the 70-640 book from MS Press but it's going too slow. Been told to think about a boot camp, so I have no choice. What companies out there have the best boot camps at a reasonable price? They must have a high pass rate.

What should I look for in a boot camp? I realize it's a bunch of cramming but I have a deadline called ASAP. I won't do brain ****.

Thanks in advance.

    Global Knowledge springs to mind, they have a good reputation.

    I have used a company called Firebrand Training before, they are very good at what they do.

    They mainly target companies but they give you a reduced rate if you are on your own. They provide accomodation, food, books exams etc. Based in UK and in Europe.

    Also if you fail to pass, you can sit the whole course again and the exams and all you pay for is the food and accomodation costs.

    Global Knowledge are also good, i have only done day courses with them though.

    Thanks for the replies. I am in the US, East coast (specifically MaryLand). Need to certify per job requirements.

    New Horizons would be very well known internationally, don't know about the assumption that their pass rates must be very high. I've been through some of these bootcamps (I would call them training courses) but I never found them satisfactory - I always had to read the book afterwards anyway.

    I always found it easier just to get the time off, study at home and throw hours at it and then take the test. You know your situation best though. They can be a good place to network with others in IT. For specialist topics then I think it's the way to go.

    Intense School, Training Camp, or Global Knowledge, in that order.

    I totally agree that reading is far better. I have the whole Microsoft Trianing Kit V2. Still on my first book with my schedule and commute don't get much time to sink into it. Besides I HAVE TO CERTIFY ASAP per my job. So Boot Camp is the only way to go
    then pick up the books and video's later after I pass to brush up. I really want to do it right the first time, but I am under the
    gun. It HAS to be done now.
