    College Degree
    In the fall of 2004 and the spring of 2005 I studied at Penn College of Technology majoring in tech support specialist. Since then they have dropped my major and I was interested in getting into doing repair and technical support for Macs since I have switched since then. The major that I was taking was all Windows based. What would be a good way about going about this. I know on Apples website that they sell the program for you to study for the technician test, would this be a good idea?

    If that is your goal than yes it does sound like a good idea.

    However with those programs you have to dedicate yourself to doing the work I don't know how many times I've seen people with "Teach yourself ..." programs and books that don't make it past the second or third chapter.

    If you wanna be an apple tech, hunt down an apple tech and ask them what they did to get into thier jobs. They should be able to tell you a lot more info than a program from the internet would.

    Although it does look pretty cool .

    Good Luck!

    I looked into it further and I would definitely want to do this. I am just wondering if I should not attend college this spring and take learn the information then take the certified test or not. Would it make a difference if I had a degree or not since there isnt really any degree that I know of that is specifically for Macs or is this the equivalent to having a degree?

    How long has it taken you to study and prepare for the exams, I am assuming that you ordered the information from Apple to prepare for it.

    What is your major that you are studying?

    Only having an Apple Technician Certification would really limit your job options, stay in school.
