  • Question

  • Would anyone care to recommend either a 7 day boot camp, which requires about $3,000 in capital, or just a self study program in order to take the certification exams? I think Microsoft, whichout their vendor/partners, offers these online classes and textbooks. Although, I'd like to acquire the cerfification in order to further my Career, as quickly as possible. I'm already using 07 Outlook, Word, and Excel, but not powerpoint.

    Is there value getting this and how would you recommend a motivated person with time resources to get it? This is concerning the new business certification application specialist.

    Thanks.

  • The BootCamp is something you need to desice for yourself. I've not personally done a BootCamp for the MCAS Certifications, but I have taken and taught other BootCamps along the way. With that I can tell you a BootCamp is designed for the person already experienced and proficient in an area of expertiese, but needs to update his/her skills to the newer applications, versions or familiarize themselves with new proceedures. These BootCamps also have a secondary purpose and that is Certification obviously.

    If you fell you can do well to learn from Self-Paced study guides then that may be your best option, but if you feel you are more inclined to learn in an Instructor-Led Enviornment then Normal Classroom Training would benifit you well I would choose that route. Just remember normal classes do not compare to a BootCamp. If you feel ready for the BootCamp and confident then I would ask for testimonal's form the Vendor and maybe go give it a shot.
