Good luck.  I recently took a sample test for the A+ certification and failed (because I know nothing of Laser Printers).  It was one of those that tell you what you missed so you can brush up.

Keep a clear head and all of that stuff, but since you have those other certs, I am sure you know this already.

These exams are for Windows Tech Support/IT? (I know MS has hundreds of different tests)

Don't feel bad, triverse. I just barely passed the test latter half of the A+ that included laser printers and it was the part I feared. Never made any use of the cert yet and likely won't. Any job I'm cut out for in the industry would likely be rather mundane. Meh, maybe I'll make use of it when I get too old for construction. I love computers, always have, but I fear when using one becomes part of work, it'll take away the fun.

Is their any particular order you would recommend taking these courses?

If you had to take it all again what do you recommend?

How much of this do they actually teach you?

The MCSA isn't really that bad as you have worked up all of the other classes by the time you get to it. None of the tests are really that hard (compared to some of the other exams out there like the Patent and Trademark Bar exam). If you actually do the reading, it should be an auto pass for you. You have some of the "harder" ones under your belt allready.

Good luck!

Did you take the test yet? I used to have a lot of time to study for classes at my work until a few months ago which was really nice. Now I barely have anytime to study at work and have to study at home more.

Good luck! I used to go to DeVry Long Beach before I had to move back home. I wish I could've finished my ECT course...

I'm always really happy and impressed with people who go through all the work of finishing college. I really admire when people can stick to something so well and not get intimidated or overwhelmed and back out. I hope someday I can get the open time to go back.
