    Hi - What is the average time taken to study and complete the exam for the
    above from start to scratch?

  2. Time is relative....

    (Knowing I should leave it at that, I'm going on). It all depends on
    one factor........... YOU. If you can speed read the study materials,
    and retain it. Or (and this is more preferable) you have the actual
    experience, which enables you to comprehend whatever you do study for
    the exam, you could be ready within a month or two. But, if you have no
    clue about what a network is, or you have to read things three or four
    times before you understand it, it's going to take you up to a year.

    In other words, how much time it 'should' take you isn't nearly as
    important TO you, as how much time you should take to completely
    understand and be able to implement what you're learning.

    My suggestion is this. Get your first book. In the book (if it's set
    up anything like the A+ book at least) they'll give you a time line and
    a method to determine how much time you'll need. Follow that, and don't
    be afraid to take longer. After all, regardless of whether you pass or
    fail, YOU just spent $100+ to take the test. How many times do you want
    to have to do that?

    I've nearly finnished the 1st book and am just revising really. There is
    alot of information to take in though. I've been working in a network
    environment for 3 years so alot of it makes sense, where as some takes more

    I suppose it does depend on the individual, i try todo about 12 hours per
    week study, and am hoping to get my mcse in a year and a half if possible.

    Go to and look at the A+ exam. Or a google search is always
    your best friend.

    That reminds me.

    Can the InterNeil protect me from unlawful disclosure
    of my search practices by W. and the evil Republicans?

    Maybe the perfct compliment to the InterNeil browser would
    be to invent the Nieloogle search engine.

    We can call it Noggle for short.

    How about an InterNeil messanger? Every time you send a message, you get a
    response from Neil.

    Even if you didn't send it to him in the first place...

  18. I like this idea. Go to the atm and withdraw all of your balance, and send
    me all of your meaningless papers.
