My progress in getting certification

I am currently trying to get the A+ certificaation quickly so that I can go on to bigger and better things.

I go to the school , to times a day, on my own time when i basically want to go. They have study groups and “microlabs” which like hands on stuff.

I really like the school, and everything is going well.

That is all.

Howdy Sly,

I am going to offer you a friendly bit of advice on the subject of the
CompTIA A+ certification.

First off, if you are having to attend classes, and then have to spend
time studying, for a certification, which honestly, if not worth the piece
of paper it is printed on, you need to pick another career.

I went in, on a wild hair, took BOTH exams in a period of approximately 30
minutes on the same day, one behind the other. I knew even before I walked
in, that I would have NO problems with the exams.

Now, the piece of paper, and membership card that will receive are NOT
going to get you job, much less an interview without experience to back it
up. This means, that if you are having to take classes for it, you don’t
have the experience to back it up, and are coming at this problem from the
WRONG direction, as it is going to hinder you.

There are a number of other certifications, which, will give you a much
better chance of getting a job. Though, a FORMAL education is required,
not one of these two weeks of accelerated classes. It will also give you
REAL hands-on experience, especially if you can get in one of the
work-study programs.

Wolfe Strickland, MCSE, MCP+I, MCP, CompTIA A+

I know A+ will not give me a job. I will get different certifications
after I am done with A+, I also want to get N+. I am going to go down the
MCSE, Cisco, and I would like to get MCP.

Re: My progress in getting certification

Remember, that the A+ can fill some of the MCSE electives as well.
