It sure does, There was a guy in my class who completing Discovery 2 which is very hard and he was really committed to completing it. He passed his 3rd attempt at the final exam then was trying to complete labs (prac work) but then he pulled out altogether as he wasn't doing any of the labs when he was doing the readings.

I don't know about serious good, but it pays the bills. I enjoy the work, and the school environment.

Is getting any qualification/certification from Microsoft worth it as I've been thinking about looking into it.

I'm a lucky person but I have worked hard for 3-5years on and off as an assistant accountant.

Why am I lucky? My step dad is the boss of his own business, he has a ACA, which is Chartered accountant, a salary of over 100k + a year with over 150clients, I work their, but I do book-keeping and bank balancing, just started a AAC course, lvl 2, their are 4 levels, so if I pass lvl 2 I do 3 then 4, 4 is a diploma, hopefully if I pass that I'll have a AAC diploma and may earn upto 20k+ a year first year and from then it says it can be 72,000+ if you carry on with it after 5-10years or so.. anyway, this is my life, but I was ment to be computers but I guess this is one of the best jobs in the uk and always in need of work so I have chose my path wisely and hopefully this forums is still around I can start donating to make it bigger once I earn big should be next year around march-april, we are getting contracts of firms to book-keep where I get the bill, woooh, can't wait!

It's all about the certificates these days, you must be qualified.
