    Practical Knowledge turning into a Cert??

    Locked

    by chilli_willie ·

    I manage our companies network and I have alot of on the job training and experience. I want to take it to the next level but my time is very limited. Is the train on your own thing good? Or what about the 2 times a week night classes?

    I just want to take my knowledge to the next level so I can bring more to the table for my company.

      at least that used to work for me in the NT4 days. I used a $20 Sybex book. The paper was so cheap you could see little bits of tree bark in it.

      I’ve found, for myself at least, devoting two or three nights a week worked.

      I used the MS Press guides & a few systems to do the labs. You have to really LIKE reading to do that & get anything out of it. 70-216 was as dry as some of my wifes cooking LOL.

      In addition, the Windows 2K3 has been changed substantially so your practical experience will help a LOT now.

      IMO opinion, at least in Canada, courses I’ve seen are really pathetic – They mostly just ‘teach’ how to write a test and not learn the material.

      You don’t say what your wanting to study so I’m assuming MS here.

      Good luck!

      Try your local community college. You may find some really good offerings at reasonable prices.

      Good luck.
