    Default Passed 901!

    So I passed 901 yesterday with a score of 848. I used Exam Cram, CertBlaster, Professor Messer, Mike Meyers on Udemy.com and other free stuff on the internet. The 848 really surprised me. I was thinking more like low 700's as I was taking the test.

    On at least 10 of the multiple choice I was able to eliminate 2 choices right off the bat and then I was left with 2 possibilities. And I'd be thinking, neither choice makes any sense. So I'd take my best guess and move on. There were times when I was thinking, I didn't study this. But there were a lot of easy ones I could rapidly click through. I'd say that a lot of what I studied was not on the test.

    There were only 3 other test takers in the room and one of them started typing 100 miles an hour at the end of her test. Lots of noise coming from her keyboard. I can only guess that she had an opportunity to leave a comment.

    Anyway, on to 902.......

    Thanks for all the replies. Looks like 902 will be harder. However I just downloaded Professor Messers 902 notes and they look like they'll be a big help...

    CertBlaster....I'd give it a rating of 'good', maybe 8 out of 10. I just took a 5 question sample test by Measure Up. I'm thinking Measure Up might be better.

    Thanks for all the replies.....

    So I picked up Dave Prowse new book: Exam Cram 220-901, 220-902 Practice Questions. 640 questions. And these questions are a step up from his other A+ book. Forget those $100+ exams and buy this. I picked it up off Amazon for something like $17 and it covers both exams.

    Hey Steff....the new Prowse book came out after I passed the 901, as did Pro Messers $10 quiz question package. And I haven't taken the 902 yet. Although I could probably pass it right now. I'll keep studying to make sure. Plus we've got a 3 day community wide garage sale coming up that may further put the 902 off for awhile.

    Anyway, if I were just starting on the 901 here's what I would do......

    Buy a book from Prowse, Meyers, Gibson, whoever. A+ is not rocket science......

    Buy the new Prowse book off Amazon for $17. Its a lot of bang for the buck....

    Buy gcgapremium.com 901/902 package. All of his stuff is good to go.....

    Buy Pro Messers questions for $10 each.....

    And yes some folks can read a book and pass the test.......

    I just passed the 902 on my first attempt with a score of 772. This exam is a step up from the 901. I had 3 PBQ and they were all tough. Looked at them at first and couldn't get anywhere with them. So on to the mult choice thinking I could blow them away. Uh...no. I found myself guessing on far to many of them. Went back to the 3 PBQ and started to put it all together. You really have to know what your doing to complete them....

    So on to Network+........
