    I was just wondering if any of you guys are actually certified? Considering that you give advice to people, do you have anything that would show that you know your stuff.
    On a side note; its better to know your certs than how fast you overclocked your athlon.

    For the most part me too. But i realized jobs dont revolve around, "Well... i havent tested my knowledge yet, but i taught myself alot, and i've learned that you should hire me... i taught myself that, too"
    A++
    Network+
    Server+ expected early '03

    But I still dont know alot of stuff, most of these guys (^for example) know more than i do.

    Some of us are certifiably insane. So when your computer drives you crazy, we already understand.

    Self taught and have the knots on my head to prove it. Fluent in: WTF, Duh!, and "big hammer" terms.

    Done all my training for a CCNA, could get my MCSE, but can't afford to go do the exams yet. :)

    But as others are saying, certifications don't really count for all that much. It just shows that you know how to pass an exam. That's one of the reasons I haven't done the exams yet. I'm happy with the knowledge I gained from the training courses, and at the moment I don't feel I need a piece of paper telling me I can do so.
