Thanks for the suggestions. Good ones all. Unfortunately Effexor really kicked in my deep fatigue button, as have all of the SSRIs I tried out, not to mention dulling my mind even further. And unfortunately my dull mind doesn't do well at translating this info. into anything more perceptible.

While in school I did have some great coaching from some of my colleagues which hellped me eke through a couple of initial MCSE tests. Since my attempts to tackle further readings in this area have been thwarted by zoning out and low motivation -- both doutbtless reflect the anxiety/depression and the dull nature of the material which just seems to make my mental wheels spin off in a thousand different somative states...

BTW, have you ever seen this comic about a female IT whiz -- Helen, Queen of the Internet . If not check it out, good for some chuckles on occasion.

Also, outlining everything as I read it. Yeah, it's more work, and it's deadly, but at least at the end, I understand what I've read better. Another, even harder, suggestion is to find a study buddy. ...You can also make flash cards for yourself, or draw a poster of the concepts or write your own study aids. Anything you do to put the concepts into your own words will help you.
