Not everybody is a computer expert, but everybody uses computer daily. There're so much unkown knowledge about computer and mostly professional in order that we need throw some time to learn and grasp it. some of my friends attend computer and internet lessons frequently while some just learn by themselves. to be exact, learn the complicated information from books, videos and even google. wonder which is the best and efficient way to learn computer knowledge. what's your experience about learning?

I have no any computer knowledge before I took a job. After I got a job, I began to learn computer knowledge all by myself through the Internet in my office. As we can search much information about computer, we can try many tips and instructions provided in the webpages and forums.

I think at the initial stage it's better to attend some lessons & when you feel confident start using on your own. More you'll use computer the more you'll gain knowledge. Because nobody can teach you 100% about computers. But when it comes to career in this field. It's recommended to take lessons from an expert.

I remember learning about computer all by myself. A lot of it was by trial and error and i used to make a lot of mistakes. I always advise friends to take a course to start with at a decent and reputed institute and then learn as much as they can on thier own.

If you really have a zero knowledge on computer, basically you really need somebody to teach you and after knowing those basics, you can now easily learn by yourselves.

well it depend on where are you comfortable.. if you can understand what is your reading or watching tutorials from the web, just stay home and make yourself a genius.. but if you need people you will explain and answer each of your questions then get out of your house and start attending school.. teachers or professors also give their experiences that may be, can help you understand other aspects about computer.. it takes time to learn things about computers so don't expect to be a computer genius in an overnight.. hope this will help you guys! god speed!! :D

there are different approaches to learn a specific kind of a thing, some do it by self-learning while some who are having a hard time doing independent research, attend formal lessons and ask for professional advices. it all depends on the type of skills that you want to learn, either way, and i think that both approaches had their own advantages and disadvantages.

I learnt lots in highschool which peeked my interest to learn more. I taught myself some as well a friend taught me some more then i went to college for Information Technology and Network Administration. I learnt alot during that course and have learnt more through job experience and other courses since then.
