However Microsoft did prioritise security updates for XP and Server 2003 before releasing Vista.

Windows Vista contains many changes and new features, the visual style called Windows Aero is the updated graphical user interface and incorporates gadgets to provide quick links and personalisation.

Here is what some of our customers thought of our course;

" When I took over the IT department at Burns Pet Nutrition I was given a lot of responsibility. Obviously this responsibility required a certain level of knowledge, some of which I did not have. After a lot of searching on the internet for an appropriate and cost effective way to get the training required in order to carry out my tasks I came across Microsoft Certification. It did not take long to decide that the methods of learning described were ideal for me. I could do the course at work or at home, in my time and at any time. The course material is easy to use and easy to access and keeps you aware of your progress. Plus the tutors answered all of my questions, quickly and accurately.

So far everything is as I would expect from an online course, just what I wanted.

Thanks "

Mike Howles,


" The initial conversations with the account manager was helpful in determining the best course to meet my needs, providing clear details of the course content and costing.

Once the account was open, accessing the system has been easy and the support has been responsive and helpful. The course documents and workflow was very easy to follow and helped guide me through the subjects.

Regards "
