    Certifications are mostly useless, show you know how to fix a broken operating system and diagnose a hardware problem

    Being literate in command prompt, powershell and term is useful as well

    Computers change so fast that everything you learn in A+ and the like is obsolete by the time you need to use it

    Thanks for the reply , @Squire72 Greatly appreciated. I've taken the A+ 4x now (on my own dime and not my company's lol) and have failed all trys. I just don't know if I really belong in i.t. after doing all that, with the basic things to know I have a good grasp on them. Guess cdi was a waste of time and money and I really just have to stick with it for a few years before I can be confident in it.

    In my experience it’s better to learn from experience - avoid exams that test your knowledge until you’re able to handle the tasks they’re testing you on.

    At least for me, I learn by experience - I break things sometimes, but I learn how to fix them as well by the time I’m done.

    Except that early 486 PC I tried upgrading. A 486 was the last processor you could mount backwards - turns white hot, sends out sparks, explodes.

    Not fixable
