    2011/6/6 Antonio Modesto : I have not bought the course nor will I. I am self taught everything in IT and Telephony. I know each person
    learns differently, that is why when I train someone, I don't show
    them, I make them do it and coach until they don't need help. In college, I studied for business administration and accounting. It
    was too easy. My classes at WVU had 300 students, so attendance was
    impossible to keep track of. I aced all the tests. Then one summer I was a book keeper at t a travel agency. I hated it.
    I hated waking up to go to work, I hated the commute, and I hated the
    job. Then it dawned on me that I was always good at computers and figuring
    things out, ever since I got my VIC 20 and later my Commodore 64. I even had a Timex Sinclare(sp?) I got into a bit of trouble but since I was a kid and there was no
    malicious intent, the legal anchorites went away, just had to deal
    with my parents. Total tangent, I apologize. Classes slow me down and then become super boring. I fell asleep in
    the 3Com NBX course a few times, but got a 98% on the cert exam. I
    learned Cisco on the job, walked into a Prometric and passed with 80
    something % and got my CCNA. Same for M$ products. I am planning to take the Red Hat cert soon. Anyways, I find structured courses to be a waste. Usually they hamper
    your creativity and are filled with fluff. If you cannot get a solid grasp of Asterisk in six months on your own
    lab using Google, voip-info, and howtos, then the course is probably
    for you you. Thanks,
    Steve Totaro
