Thanks for the updated link!  I'm going to take it by the end of April, and I'll post any thoughts I have on it afterwards.

Guys, need for all of this.  You all share the same body, making it a bit harder, but I think I have an answer.  Train both old school and new school.  Then use one hand to program with each method.  That way you get the best of both worlds and if you get tired of doing it that way, switch hands.

And you just put that hacker CD away codedonkey, no need for serious threats like that.  Big brother might be watching and come take you and your friends away. :eek:

Just kidding, hack away at yourself, I'm interested in how that would turn out.

No problem Redstar!  Did you try that method out yet?  And if so, how'd it work out?

Otherwise if you copy/paste the links from the other post I think they should work that way also.

This two-page article was pretty good, and as long as you have your own stereo receiver and cables it sounds like there is freeware to do the recording part.

Admin(s)....if you still watch this it is obviously time to step up or pass off the torch to those who still care about this site.

Enforcer, that sucks that they don't seem to care anymore.  If there's anything we can do to help, I'm all ears.

I would say yes, they are worth your time.
The only thing I would point out/recommend is something it sounds like you are thinking about too.
These are not the certs themselves, just programs from the college.  Those will look good to employers from your area, but probably won't matter much to those outside of your region.
They will definitely be good resourses for passing your exams, with both textbook material and hands-on experience.
You could get both of those from other resources, like free online tutorials and practice exams.  And hands-on from personal (buy them at garages sales and from classifieds just to play with, tear down, rebuild), friend, and family computers.
So I guess I would weigh the cost of those classes against the benefit of learning in a classroom environment.  Pick whichever of those is most important and go from there.

Good luck with everything!

This thread is in reply to 'geegeebee' and all those ridiculous cracked software posts.  I know this will be 'crunch munch'ed, (almost makes me vomit to think about) but I have to say something since nobody else is.


I want this site to be what I keep reading about in the archives.  Where is everyone?  If you are studying like me (and who in the IT field isn't) lets get this site going again.

Voice your opinions with me and get 'geegeebee' and the software crap OUT OF HERE!!
11  CompTIA / A+ forum / One Book!?! on: June 08, 2008, 04:11:32 PM
It sounds tempting from their posts (sales ad?) that the book will allow you to pass the certs.  But if you've been browsing the rest of these forums, you'll know that hands-on experience is also essential. Especially when it comes to applying your skills in a job.
Use many resources of many different types:
- Local colleges offer courses open to the public for reasonable prices.
- There are TONS of free online resources.
- You can find books at thrift stores and used book stores for cheap.
- Work on family and friends computers (just be sure to BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP before you do).

I am planning on reading the book, because it does sound really good from all the sites I've been to, this reply was not meant to badmouth the book, just to be helpful.

Good luck everyone!  Smiley

This site has lots of good information and practice tests. is also a good site that I use frequently.
MCMCSE and TechExams are good from what I've heard, but I haven't used them too much myself.
Good luck with your certs!

I'm still studying for and plan on taking this cert.  As far as I know it's not a programming language like raventec says.  It is about the basics of computers and how they work.  I'll let everyone know how it goes and my opinions of the newer exams once I take them this summer.  Even though lots of people have this cert, and some probably don't know how to apply their skills in the real world, there is no doubt in my mind that it would look better to have it than not.  It certainly can't hurt at any rate.
