I learned more when i attended some seminars and trainings rather than to my school lol. Although my course is related with computer, But you will learn more from the job or When you are reading and surfing over the Internet as well.

Hi..the point is we can learn self-taught.Not too difficul when we have interest.For people who work at office and they face computer everyday surely they can learn continue or learning by doing.Anyway, thankyou for responding.

When computer first came out, it was XT 8088 processor. I wasn't impressed at all :p Then AT 286 came out, still I wasn't impressed. I don't like the black green and black white color of the screen. Until one day I saw my friend played King's Quest IV if I'm not mistaken, the graphics was so good, the sound was also good. The game made me attracted to find out about the PC, it was an AT 386 processor. I bought the game and many more PC games, and also a PC. As we all know, games need more hardware than other software. It made me learn about hardware, and when I want to play a multiplayer game, it made me learn about LAN. Now, I'm an IT staff responsible of network and security in my company thanks to games :)

I never learned computer through a course. One of my friends helped me to learn the basics of computer. I learned computer as a paper along with my BS, but it was only theory and I never get to use computer. I passed that exam by memorizing some computer programs. Now, I get to use computer and I have a computer at home. Computer courses were very expensive at that time.

I learn about computer in school, not special courses, just simple English lesson. They want us to expose to the computer initially. Then later on, they use computer to let us do mathematics on them. I had fun lessons doing that when I was first exposed to computers.

For me, we did learn some computer courses at school. But only very basic and easy ones. I gain most of the computer knowledge by myself, through much experience. And practice makes perfect. Have a nice day!
