Be sure to buy training that meets your needs

"Let the buyer beware"

Latin for “Let the buyer beware”. CompTIA and Microsoft course-ware buyers need to know what makes a good training course and what to avoid.

The Issue

Too many books that accompany CompTIA training are not fit for purpose.

Beware that many course providers use their own or out of date course-ware. Download our course quality checklist before buying any CompTIA course.

Poor or old (GTS) CompTIA course-ware will not help you become a good technician or pass the exams.

Choose what book would you like your delegates to take away from the course?

Some companies give students training books foe CompTIA courses that do not cut it
CompTIA exam success requires having the correct book

Unfortunately both books fail to meet the current CompTIA standard, one is just poor imitation of a study guide and the other is now too old and out of date.

Some training companies will save money at your expense either by producing cheap versions of the book or using old stock.

GTS have ceased trading following being bought out by CompTIA. GTS was the market leader in authorised CompTIA courseware. The good news is that the GTS experts are now employed directly by CompTIA and produce the CompTIA Official courseware that is guaranteed to cover 100% of the CompTIA exam syllabus.
