  • Question

  • I'd really like to start working towards an MCTP and further but I'm reluctant to pay the course prices, are the Microsoft E-Learning courses suitable as they are around £1000 cheaper than the classroom courses.

    If enough time was spent studying and working through the online courses - would you be ready to sit an exam?

    What are your opinions on the Microsoft E-Learning content

    Many thanks

  • Hi Craig,

    I personally think that the E-Learning training is very good as one exam I failed twice on before using this and the Inside/out book.

    I would suggest that you dont just use the E-Learning and maybe use the MS Press books as well and then reviewing objectives on the Microsoft page for the exam.

    I haven't done any clasroom based courses and I am currently on my 5th MS exam so although I can see the benefits if you are willing and dedicated enough to study at home don't think that if you don't study in a classroom that you will fail,


    Regards

  • Hi Craig,

    Live Microsoft E-learning is becoming a more and more popular "blended learning" solution platform.  It  gives you the same knowledge with the ease of fitting it in your schedule and saving you money on travel and lodging. 

    Check out: www.solartech.us for LiveE Online training and certification opportunities.

  • Personally, until MS updates their training to reflect the addition of 2008 R2 content I would save my money. Use the MS Press book and get the book Server 2008 R2 Unleashed to help you with the new stuff.
