I have only been to a few boot camps, but I recommend CED Solutions. I went there and they have the best group of instructors for their classes that I have experienced. My company asked me my opinion and they have sent people there after me as well. Every single person from my company, who went, achieved their certification.

So, you like the idea of taking a class to pass the questions, but then once you're in the scenario to do the work, you won't be able to since you've only taken the classes...right?

not at all, I am already in the scenario doing the work, however one of my goals for the year is to get the certification, I have a sharepoint deployment to work on while at work and a 2 year old and newborn at home so studying at home is out of the question, bootcamp gets me away and allows me to focus on the task at hand and get it done. but thanks for reading the question and trying to help of which it provided none whatsoever

Sorry I came across that way.  I just see a lot of questions (and interview a lot of people) who do the bootcamps just to get a job, and then once they're there, they're clueless.

Microsoft Learning has a LOT of hands-on internet classes.  Its not in-person, but they cover almost everything you'd need.  A lot of them are actually free.

Problem with the e-learning is either in the office or at home, no one is going to leave me alone long enough to get anything done

Turns out the company you recommended is the same company under a different name of the only other one I could find. not too many boot camps offering this
