    A+ could be permanent, but a lot of qualifications aren't.

    Like BK said, best way to stay current is to work in the business. Or pretend to work in the business, but sit at your PC and look at computer sites all day. ;) Works for me

    I think the MCSE is 2 years, isn't it?

    anyway, even though a job can help keep you current, I still like having 'proof' that I'm current...I change jobs so offten that proof can be a blessing

    these forums keep me more up to date than my job can :laugh:
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    its easy to give a prospective employer proof that you know what yer doin, while waiting for the interview hack his system, erase all financial data, then retrieve it back for em at the interview, guaranteed* job.




    *Guarantees not guaranteed to work.

    That's the problem with a lot of 'qualified' people out there. They got the letters after their name, but they don't know jack about real life practices. I've seen fully qualified CCNA idiots use 'cisco' and 'class' as router usernames / passwords (because that's what they were taught in class). BK's suggestion is a good one.

    to me qualifications mean you have done the bookwork, but it dont mean you know what yer doin, only experience can proove that.

    i thought ccna was 3 years.

    the cisco certifications seem to filter out allot of braindead morons, but the MS ones seem to attract them, MS courses mean nothing to a lot of businesses i know

    I'm pretty sure that CCNA is only two years... with the rate they change (some) parts of the curriculum, that's not such a bad thing I suppose.

    so like I said, you do need to study. If you can I'd recommend taking a class. Taking the actual tests is not usually part of a class though. I say take a class because you will usually learn much more than is in any book that way.. assuming of course that you have and good instructor and the class is more than just a lecture

    lol, someone stop me from writing so much next time... [/B]
    Im gonna try to take a class, thats if one is oferred around here for fiarly cheap, and OS's, the only M$ os i dont really know is 2000, or 3.1 Im pretty good with printers, Ive took all types of dead ones apart to see how they work etc.,

    Stop me from Reading so much next time :p

    A+ is dirt easy to get if you can put a system together and have it working. I dont really think that taking a class would be any better than reading the book.

    Oh yeah, if youre planning on taking it. remember, there is no such thing as Printer Snake Virus. It seems to be in every test. :thumb:
    Also the test is adaptive, so you cannot go back once you choose an answer. it bases the next question on how well you did on the previous one. and there are about 20-30questions. :thumb:

    My bad, a CCNA certification is valid for three years. :)
