I'm not saying it's a bad deal, but do your research before buying. Also be sure to check when the tests expire, since some of the tests might have a new version coming out... meaning that some of the material could be outdated somewhat faster than you'd think.

For CompTIA A+... Many people seem to prefer Professor Messer (free on YouTube).... and some like Mike Meyers's videos on urlhasbeenblocked. There's also Jason Dion on urlhasbeenblocked, and some like his practice tests. Exam Cram books are also liked, but more to the point so I probably wouldn't get those as the sole resource.

Does this mean lifetime access to the "2020" stuff or lifetime access to whatever is current? If I try to log in 20 years from now, will I have access to learning material to 2040 learnin' stuff? (realizing that the website may not be around at that time).

you often need some sort of CompTIA cert to work on some sort of systems.
just my 2 cents, as someone who had those certs (linux plus and sec plus) in the past: i think the class themselves are quite useless (for me anyways). for example, the class touches on what encryption algorithm is better, but never touch on how those algorithm is implemented and why some are better than others. i certainly hope the format has changed over the last 10 years.

and if the cert is all you want. you could literally know nothing and just read the dump for 4 days and pass the exam.

Stacksocial is fine I've done classes on there before (CCNA etc).

So I've worked in IT for 20+ years and in computer support roles for 5+ on top of that in my younger years. Knowledge itself has value, but in my experience the A+ tests are worthless on your resume for anything higher than entry level helpdesk stuff. That doesn't mean there isn't worthwhile knowledge to be gained here, but the tests are a waste of time IMHO. You could spend that time on a certification that is worthwhile like Cisco CCNA, Microsoft (whatever they call their certs this year), VMware, SQL, Amazon AWS, etc.

To restate... if you're looking to bolster your IT career, skip this stuff, spend the same amount of time on a topic that employers care about.

No thumbs down, knowledge is knowledge. But skip these certs.

If you are a veteran, you can get a free online course AND ONE FREE VOUCHER TO TAKE THE ACTUAL CERT EXAM through https://ivmf.syracuse.edu/

Subjects range from IT, to HR, to LOG, etc. These include CAPM and PMP as well.

You may then take a qualification exam to attend one of these, for free: https://www.cvent.com/surveys/Wel...a706d317b9

I'm in the process of getting Sec+ and Cisco CyberOps [cisco.com] for $0.

Tons of garbage "free" veterans training out there, but these are 100% legit.

P.S. I second the practice exams from Dion available on You Demi for $10-12. Sec+ are clutch. Don't buy this StackSocial nonsense. It sounds like a better idea than it actually is.

P.P.S If you are interested in certs, consider applying to an IT program at your local community college. Many are 100% online and result in certification of some kind. I was awarded a $1000 / semester scholarship for doing almost nothing, which is good for about 6 classes a year.

Don't buy anything from stack social please. Be warned!!! I almost did but thank god i took advice from a dear friend. The contents on their ad isn't straight forward, it's really cunning.
If you notice on their website, you can't even click or see the reviews.
Go to trustpilot, and you'll see reviews about them. Be careful plz.
