The MS Press books can be picked up from Amazon for pretty cheap. It's only when you want better quality training that the price starts getting out of hand.

I tried an MCP about 8 years ago in XP, I found it really hard to concentrate reading a book the size of the yellow pages and trying to remember it. Did the exam twice I think and didnt get anywhere, not easy at the time but I might understand it more now.

I found it easier playing on a computer at the same time, or having one close by to put what's said into actions.

I also have trouble reading the books but the hands on experience definitely helps.

I am currently doing this Welcome to OpenITtraining.com u am doing a MCSE/MCITP
Also MCDST, MCSA, MCSE certificates.
It isnt perfect but has provided me access to other courses materials which I have gone through and had a good look at to "Know" it. Price wasnt bad either, although I will add i did find one mistake in a question/answer/course materials.

Blackburn College used to do Microsoft courses.

Well worth contacting Lancaster University too. InfoLab21 - ICT Focus - Microsoft Training
They do some excellent courses and have some very experienced trainers.

You dont really need any qualifications with in ICT if you have worked in it for 10 years, you have that 10 years experience which is way more than that Qualification/degree.
Any company taking people on IT wise they will always go for experience rather than qualifications

It's worth looking at what the Open University offer - I am currently studying TM128 which doesn't include the Microsoft MCSP exam but does prepare you for it and gives the option to take the exam at a discounted rate. They also do a course relating to the Cisco CCNA qualification.

Totally agree with that, especially if you deal with staff/students/all ages. If your IT system evolves often then you for sure got an advantage over some one who has a certificate.
As a bonus though, I am currently doing a MCITP and I am learning things I never knew, redoing things I already knew and have already found a few mistakes! To me Experience is best but qualification and experience is top notch. I will soon be reaching the 10 Yrs of working in IT. And by then I would of completed my MCITP I hope!

It sounds a stupid question but I would appreciate if anyone can help me understand "ICT qualification".
I presently holds MCSE and Cisco certification engineer. Does these qualification are equivalent to ICT qualification?
appreciate advises in this regards
