im going to tell you what i tell everyone ....


you need 3 things to get a certification and know your shit so in the real world you can get a job with the certification...

1. the theory, the knowledge the books

2. the hands on work.

3. studying for the exam...

if you do this online you will only be able to accomplish number 1...

How can't you study for an exam online? You would have the books, plus a plethora of online study sources for multiple certs. On the other hand I do agree completely on #2. It is very hard to get hands on when you are doing it online.

Well, I already know a lot of the hands on stuff. I've been building PCs for 5 years now.

pfff "FIXing pc's getting rid of viruses through the registry troubleshooting" is very easy. You just need to learn how to ask The Oracle! nicely :wink: A little hands on experience is nice too.

No online class can give you an A+ cert. You have to study and learn, then take & pass the test.

Sheldon made very good points about studying online and/or with books & a little hands on experience isn't bad either.

Find out what the test covers and go from there.

The Oracle & Wiki are very informative.
