    Thanks guys!

    Yeah I didn't get to or want to watch the Messer videos beyond 701. I'm starting to feel the grind.

    After I pass Ill watch the second portion of Messers videos.

    Good luck man, If nobody told you, the 702 is harder than the 701(it was for me at least). Its all troubleshooting and scenarios, not like the 701, which is all facts. I haven`t watched the Messer videos for A+ but if they are as good as the Net+ videos you should be fine.

    Passed 701 with a 827. Hopefully I can pass 702. I had about 30 mins to spare so I did go back over some answers. I felt like a lot of the OS questions I blew through. I just took Network + about 3-4 weeks ago and I squeaked by with a 775, however having that networking knowledge helped a lot.

    Thanks for all the good wishes I really do appreciate it.

    You should be fine if you read that book. I just watched the videos and went off of my experience.

    Never taken 702 so I have no idea.

    Well if you fully understand the material nothing is hard. i always use the analogy of "Remember back in grade school when you took a test you thought was easy but your buddy sitting next/behind/in front of you kept bugging you for answers. It wasnt because he/she was stupid, it was because you knew your stuff and was prepared by studying and they didnt" With that in mind i was new to the IT field so truobleshooting PCs was COMPLETELY new to me. Anybody can memorize some facts but when you have to use reason and logic for the answers, well it helps to fully understand the material.
    I took a 3 month course that was all hands-on. I got an 895 on the 702 but i went over all of my questions to make sure of it. As far as the type of questions....Multiple choice, multiple answer and i don`t remember if there were true and false ones. if you are passing the practice test because you understand the material and not because you remember your answer from last time, you will be fine.

    I have 702 scheduled this Thursday around noon.

    It was the only day I could get off work this week. Since the holidays and all.

    I took the A+ about a week apart myself. You should do well...especially since you got one test out of the way. When I took A+ it was after work and I didn't want to be home very late.

    At this rate, you should have the Trinity done in no time. Best of luck!!

    Yeah after this and security + (hopefully no guarntees) It will be all Excel and Access. I also signed up for a Visual Basic class 1 and 2 for the following year. To be honest I might not get to security plus. It's looking more distant each day, but you never know.

    The potential position I am going to be hired for is going to require a lot of metric driven decisions. i won't be making the decision, but providing the data is a logical format.
