    Welcome to the forum.

    They effectively mean exactly the same thing.

    Please see the amendments I have made in red. Remember to start every sentence with a capital letter and check your spelling and punctuation.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Welcome from me, too, nadereh .

    Here's a tip for a better title: Are you ready (yet).

    The "yet" can imply that the person asking the question is impatient.

    ...and 'Aren't you ready yet?' implies even more impatience.
