Hi Sam

Yes, my jaw dropped when I saw my result the first time. I have gone into quite a bit of detail with some of the subjects, including TCP/IP and thought what is going on here. Very naughty.

Hi William

I'm not actually doing the online course you are asking about, but was
curious to see what was on the website.

I am doing the MCDST course but at a local training centre in
Birmingham.
The course is 5 days, but obviously it takes a lot longer to do than
that.
There are lots of video's to watch and you get a manual . I have a PDF
version of the book which makes the course material accessible.

The other thing you need is a computer with XP pro on it so you can
install
Virtual PC 2007 as there are labs that you need to complete on virtual
machines.

I don't know how the online course works, maybe they have a virtual
environment that allows you to complete the labs? I don't imagine it
would
be accessible though. Maybe their course is designed in a different way,
but
doing practical labs is key to being a good technician and understanding

what you are doing.

After going to the link you gave I was interested to find a link to a
small
test. There are 10 questions and after taking the test I got 2 out of
10.
Took the test again and apparently got 1 out of 10. I know for certain I
got
about 8 questions correct. So obviously they are fiddling your answers
to
make it look like you need to take their online course. I find this very

misleading and would therefore not trust them.

Anyhow, the training centre I go to is called New Horizons and they have

centres all over the Uk. They were very accommodating in helping with my

access needs and I would recommend them. I am almost ready to take the
first
exam and I think that is going to be quite tough as I don't believe you
can
install access technology on the exam machines.

Kind regards
Darren.
