    Anyone used it? Anyone liked it? Worth $300?

    Any other sources out there to use? I found a book from Peachpit for $60, can get it on Half.com for $20.

    Just looking for some insight. Thanks.

    No, my company is paying for the tests and I'm picking up the training...

    And my question wasn't "should I", it's more of a "how".

    worked for them, If I could I would send you the training i got for desktops. But Im sure I would get in trouble(mainly bc i signed the no-talkie-about-shit policy and legally im still held to it). I dont work for apple anymore, but what i have is more for the phone techs. Wouldnt be bad background.

    I am considering it also. I do tech support for apple right now, really no point as i really don't think it would teach me much, but hey it would be free... :)

    Im sure it would give you more hardware experence. Most phone support is software related compaired to hardware. Most of the time I referered to stores/ASPs anyways. Althought its all the same with PCs, components are the same, most are just named different.
