Re: Affordable training?

Can't say something about the site, but as I read the certs you mentioned are not too hard and should be quite easy to pass. Especially when you search on EH-Net for S+ and study guides, you should be able to find some recommendations.

Amazon has listed quite a few books, so you might also look there and go through customer reviews.

Re: Affordable training?

I'll 2nd and 3rd the comments above...  (I'm 37 with 4 kids, and have been there, done that... ;-) )  If I can be of any help, feel free to IM me on here, and we can chat.

Re: Affordable training?

Even though I teach Security+ as a boot camp, I advise people interested in the training that pretty much all courses can be self-learned if interested in saving money. The biggest difference between courses and self-study is you are exchanging money for time, or vice versa.

Also, be aware you often get what you pay for. If you decide to go for a training course, make sure the teacher is competent, not the school. Also, you might check out community colleges in your area as well - a lot of the introductory courses are being included in college programs now.
