Could be worse, I had to sit through an install class I had pretty much taught before just because my record at corporate didn't reflect my completing it myself

The instructor knew me, told me to sit in the back and pretend like I was paying attention

To compre this to my world, I spent 6 hours today on a client upgrade that should of only taken 2-3 max, problem was their equipment and network pipe

Took so long that I was watching a movie on TV while remoted in watching it progress 1% at a time

Good thing I was billing them my standard rate of $150/hour :icon_cool

what kind of classes?

The ones I took were boring as hell. Hated every minute of them. I did learn a lot about Microsoft and Cisco but not doing me any good as of right now because no money for the 20,000 certifications you need before someone will even think about giving you a call back on a resume you submitted. At least that is the case around here.

All this Certs stuff, prior years you didn't need to have all to this. The reason why you need to have it is because to limit those who don't know what the heck they're doing. A+, N+ CCNA, MCP, MSCE bla, bla. But you still need to know what you're doing and have years of experience doing it. Now my point is this you got 11 years under your belt do you still to have Certs? Answer is no! Why because you know what the heck your doing.

Now if you have 11 years and go take the exams for these test without studying for them you'll fail the exam. Most of the guys I know in this boat have taken the A+ exam 5 to 10 times and can't pass it because they figure they really don't need as they have too many years doing all of this crap anyway.

Anyway good luck getting A+ Certified..

Classes are fun... Well when you outsmart the teacher when it came to computer hardware and networking, but when it came to a server based os... grr.... I will say I enjoyed all my classes.

I hated my class. I knew more then the teacher. Also the teacher was right down boring. I remember one of the first classes, he was giving a lecture on how a hard drive works. When he said "The head goes up and down, in and out." There wasn't a dry eye in the whole class room, he was so boring everyone took it as a sexual indowindow.

Wow, Sounds like my progaming in C++. But I will say it doesnt sound as as bad as "Object Oriented Programing and Data Structures 1". The real kicker is that im not going to be using the programing for my carrear. I just need the Computer Information Systems degree to become a network architect.
