is ms press self-paced are enough? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    first of sorry if this is duplicated (I tried to search and didn't find enough answer to my question).

     

    let me first explain my knowledge and my goal

    I'm using computers since 1999 started with win 95 and ms dos to win 98, etc to ,currently, windows 7

    (I'm php programmer btw)

    I own a little home network (consists of 4 desktop pcs and a laptop pc) which I use to test anything seems hard or I like to learn.

    shortly, I believe I'm more than just a windows user, I need to go in the IT field.

    the first thing I thought about (and read a lot about) is the mcitp EA...

    so my very simple question is "is the self-paced training kit enough to pass the exams with good score if a I do study them well?"

    or there will be missing stuff that I need to use other sources to study it?

  • All the self-paced training kits that I have seen were quite good and complete. If you study the subject matter and practice what they teach, you should be well prepared for passing the exam.

    That said, bear in mind that these kits are not "basic, introductory material". They presume that you are reasonably familiar with all the basics. In your case, I don't think that you should have any trouble. Go ahead and purchase one of the self-paced kits. They are inexpensive enough (when compared with the value of the hours of work that you will need to invest to study them), so it's worth giving it a try.

  • Thanks a lot mate,

    yup, some of my experts (certified) friends said that the self-paced kits are not basic step-by-step introductory, and that's why I liked it,

    to see some ambiguous information will push me to look up to get more details, which mean I'll achieve the goal of getting more methods (theoretical and practical) and go through more details.

     

    thanks once more mate.
