Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Geeks Guide 2 from Register BooksGeeks Guide2 You don't have to look far to see that IT jobs are disappearing right, left and centre. For those still in employment it's becoming more important than ever to show your diverse set of skills. For those looking for employment, re-skilling or certifying is a possible route to securing a new job. This week's GG2 is a month long special, offering Reg readers the chance to study for a Microsoft certification with 40% off all Microsoft Press Training Kits until 31 July 2009.

A Microsoft Press Self-Paced Training Kit is an official exam prep guide that supports your studies for a Microsoft certification. For those of you who haven't used a training kit before, they are essentially a book and CD combo with a series of lessons and reviews that fully cover each exam objective. These lessons are complemented by 'real-world' case scenarios and practice exercises that allow you to reinforce everything you learn and help you pass the exam.

Microsoft Training Kits - 40% off at Register Books.

So far it sounds like a typical textbook right? Well, where the training kits differentiate themselves is with the supplementing 'extras' that they come with. Each kit offers something slightly different; however the general theme is that they come with a 15% exam discount, a trial of the software that the exam is based upon (e.g. Visual Studio 2008), and fully searchable eBooks. Furthermore, for a limited time period all training kits allow you to select from a range of Microsoft Online Learning courses worth £25 absolutely free.

The eBooks are available on the accompanying CD as too are a series of practice tests or 'review suites'. The tests shouldn't be underestimated and are an essential part of the training kit experience. There are multiple testing modes offering hundreds of questions, and if you get one wrong you'll be greeted with a thorough explanation of why and how to improve. In essence the suites are there to help you focus your efforts on areas you struggle in, allowing you to be far more efficient with your study time.

So if you're considering certification or just wanting to cash in on a bargain, Microsoft Press Training Kits are available now at Register Books with 40% off the list price, with same day despatch and free delivery*.
