Well, lemme go ahead and say this before anything else... i just learned why cookie dough is soooooo addictive... the vanilla flavoring is 35% alcohol... weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Now, back to the problem at hand:

I want to fix up my system since it is acting up a lot and i want better fps on Tread Marks. So, i found a pamphlet we got in the mail... it was advertising a tutor class. The class hosted certified Microsoft dudes that new how to tweak Windows and fix bugs. It is supposed to be hands on and give you a 45 dollar packet of software for messing with your cpu's noodles for free. Now, the class lasts over a period of TWO DAYS, with classes going from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M. approx. and the whole thingy is hosted by a group called CompuMaster. Now, here comes the punch line, ready? IT COSTS A STINKIN $895 per person for this, is this for REAL?What a bunch of balogna... i don't see how, LDA, is this for real? I think i'll go ahead and get a college course... That's gotta be the best way to learn about computer upgrading and fixing stuff, right?

Buy an A+ Certification Study Guide for $45, and then you'll have $850 left for cookie dough

If you want certs, follow Cell's advice, but IMO, besides getting you a job, they aren't good for much (A+ anyways)...

I went to tech college and got a few cert's for $230 a quarter (3 months) and finished the self paced course in 9 months. Therefore i spent $690. Which leaves many $$$'s for cookie dough

Going to a tech and taking courses is a lot different from "going to college". I'm not decided as to which, if either, I'm gonna do...

Yeah, Kaeto's right - 800 isn't near enough Cell...

The school I went to was 28000/year tuition, about 5000/year room and board.
