Getting Started with IT Certification

I’ve been in the game long enough that it’s about time I can pretend I know what I’m talking about and start offering advice. If you’re looking to get started with IT certification, and looking to make Microsoft Certification your focus point, look no further. This is what you need to get started:

  • Be sure to build yourself a decent “lab server”. You’ll want something with a decent amount of memory and disk performance and a 64-bit virtualisation-enabled CPU (All new CPUs should have this, but be aware of this if you are repurposing an existing computer). If you’re going to specialise in networking, get something with a decent amount of network cards.


  • If you have any suggestions, please post a comment.


  1. Hello I also have a Asus N51VN-A1 notebook I saw your post about you got an ssd, well I also did but do you know what speed the optical drive sata slot operates at?

    It reports 1.5 but I think thats only because of the optical drive inside it. I want to buy a caddy for my old drive.

  2. I am a fan of informative content, especially when it's this good. Your views are interesting and I really like that.
