David, you can probably pick up a good used computer for a couple hundred dollars.

I'm glad to hear about the UOP courses. I was toying with the idea and wondered about the value - good to know.

Margaret - My dad actually has an old computer around (actually very old, it's from around 1992) but the only thing in it that's really usable for rebuilding is the case. This summer I'm going to start working full time so that at some point next year I can afford to build up my next system (I'm going to save for a while so I can go all out on this one.. ) so I think I'll just wait til then for any rebuilding projects, also, I'm planning on rebuilding my current system to use as my own webserver (I'll just need to get a static IP from my web provider and then get my domain name directed to that address). I would definitely agree with anybody who says hands on is the best way to learn, so that'll be a perfect oppurtunity to get comfortable working with all types of hardware.

Clare - thanks very much for digging up all the info. I did check on the CompTIA website and they have a section where you can select a certification and your country and it will show the price of the test (the area of the site is here if anybody else is interested)

- David

Just a word of warning David, it's very difficult to knuckle down to an on-line/distance course if you have a busy schedule. It takes a great deal of dedication to take it to completion (drop-out rates on on-line/distance courses are much higher than face-to-face courses). I know you have a tight schedule, but I'd go with Greg's advice of f2f coursework.

The hands-on idea is also a good one. Get an ATX case and a couple of P2 motherboards, CPUs and hardrives and try and build them up from there. Learning how to make bits and pieces work with Windoze is something you'll never get taught on a course.
