  • Hi Patrick,

    Small world :-)

    The course was great. You need to have discipline and set aside regular study times otherwise it’s easy to fall behind.  Some of the assignments were quite big as well however lecturers are happy to give extensions as they understand that students are usually juggling study and a fulltime job (that’s one of the benefits of this course; it’s based around fulltime employees and not full time students).

    The course is a little different now and there are a lot more subjects to choose from.

    I would recommend doing the Microsoft certifications yourself (i.e. not through the Uni) as you can buy the Self-Paced Training Kits from any bookstore (Approx. $90 per book) and then sit the exams through Prometric (Approx. $200 per exam).  You them provide the Uni with a copy of your exam report showing that you passed and they'll give you a credit for that subject.  Works out a lot cheaper than doing it through the Uni (Approx. $1950 per subject).

    CHeers

    Jeff
