Have somebody here that bought that course? What is your opinion?

Thanks.

    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

    Way to go Steve. That’s the best way to learn.

    +1…I am an autodidact myself, never took any courses in IT or Telephony other a “computing” course in tge late 80s that was actually a typing class that used computers.
