Believe it or not, self-study is the chosen method for half or more of all successful certification holders. Cost control is the primary motivation for this trend. As long as you pass the exams, it doesn't matter where you studied to get through them. And a certification based on self-study is exactly the same as one based on classroom training. So your certificate will indeed be just as good if you get it as cheaply as possible. Good luck as you prepare. With a mix of good study materials, practice tests, and a home network to let you get the necessary hands-on experience, you can do as well as anybody!
