I'm sorry. Mark.No c, please call me Mark.
I can relate to the knowledge not sticking around long. I am terrible with the remote learning thing. I cannot do it without the classroom element. Some people can, I just never could.
I took my A+ back in '98. I didn't cram for it. I was already an electronics technician, so knew most of the stuff. I did take a couple of practice tests online to see where I needed reinforcement and worked on just those specific areas. (In my case it was largely printer related, the phases that laser printers go through). I'd probably have to study a bit more for the test these days. It's apparently two parts now, where it was a single test back then. They still had DOS questions at that point. I'm not sure what the new modules are like. (I may have to find a practice test and see if I could even pass it anymore ...)
Also couriant, may I ask if this comment was said to put me in my low place? "I remember the City and Guilds.... not sure what degree I did from there though..." I may be missing the point.The problem I face couriant, is that, how can I take a job where I'm paid to troubleshoot, when I don't feel any confidence in my ability to do so?
