    I’m so grateful for the quality of work you have put to this set of videos. It as really improved me as I’m preparing for the A+ certifications. May God bless you mighty.

    Wow! What can I say but thank you. How about if I just put it this way. You not only fed me, you taught me how to fish and even gave me the fishing pole! How can that possibly be repaid? God bless you.

    Wow. I’m finally finished. I’m kinda sad because I’ve enjoyed learning from these modules so much. I am going to review these modules again before I set up to take the A+ Test.

    When I finally do get a job in the IT field, I will look out for these social engineering methods and take the necessary steps to avoid being taken for a loop.

    Hi Professor,
    thanks a lot for ALL your videos!
    I’ve watched all of the ‘old’ ones. Now I’ll start with the new ones (70X exams).

    I find them quite addictive, so I might watch the Security ones too.

    Hopefully I’ll get A+ certified this year.

    Cheers.

    Hi professor. I piad 5 and a half thousand pounds to a company called computeach in the uk for a “home learning” MCP track which included CompTIA A+, MCDST, MCSA and MCSE. They provided me with 2 manuals which are not particularly great…(pictures are in black and white and are not entirely learner friendly because there is just pages and pages of info and nothing to keep your attention as a learner) and a username and password to a website of theres which has forums (which isnt bad, although could be a little better) and some interactive videos which are quite robotic and consist of drawn coloured pictures and some very minotinous tasks. I havent passed any of my CompTIA A+ exams yet. Then I came across your videos, colourful very well structured and well explained in each topic and youre doing this for FREE! I think you are great but I am very angry with Computeach UK for takin me for a mug! Ive got the MCDST next and thats if I get that far and then I have to use the half cocked materials that they provide me. My time as a student is running out with them because of the rubbish theyve provided me with. You though professor, I thank. You dont happen to do any MCDST learning videos do you?
