According to recent surveys at Certification Magazine, over 70% of all certification candidates include self-study methods as part of their preparatory regimen, while less than 28% use only classroom training to get themselves ready. The big issue with classroom training is cost, so if you can get financial support from an employer or other sources that will help you pick up the bigger tab for that approach to certification. On the other hand, you'll find that even people who attend classes also use study guides, exam crams, practice tests and other self-study tools to help them get ready for the exam. Like most people, therefore, you'll probably end up doing some of both if you are lucky enough to find yourself in the classroom as you prepare.
