I don't know about anyone else but,in my opinion I think that a person that sits at home on a comp is far more advanced than a person that completed college!
Depending how many years,and installing files,or etc...

Way too general

by James R Linn In reply to Anything

Are you talking about someone who goes to college for PC Tech? Programmer?

I wouldn't necessarily agree. Some colleges do a fine job at exposing students to both practical experience and teaching the theoretical. But of course depends on both thecollege and the student -some people are adept at self study, others need the structure of a classroom environment.

I tend to see college grads as better long term employee prospects as they have "learned how to learn".

Not Anymore!

by RDSchaefer In reply to Way too general

Colleges no longer teach people 'how to learn'! The grads I've seen in the last 5 or 10 years only learned how to work the system so they could get by with a minimum of effort. Probably 90% of what I know, I taught myself from books and hands-on experience and that's not just about computers.

not necessarily true

The problem with statements such as this is there will be an exception. Any experience is what you make it. If you are learning on your own, and you are serious about learning, it is possible to pass someone who has a degree. However if you are learning on your own, but are just playing around with it, you probably won't learn much.

On the degree side...
If you work hard and earn your degree, you have the opportunity to learn far more than on your own. The reason for this is that you can draw on the experiences of a lot of people. However, if you are just working the system, you won't learn much of anything.
