    Default Taking CASP in a week

    I'm taking the CASP in a week and coincidentally on my birthday. Trying to avoid a birthday bummer, any advice?

    Solid advice. It felt like bad mojo so I moved it to the 11th.

    Most of the questions that were on my test were not straightforward. Know how to manipulate the formulas (take your time and extract the information that will be needed to solve the equation). If you have issues with remembering the common protocols and their associated ports, brain dump that info onto your scribble pad right after you sit down at the computer.

    Stay calm and power through. If you are not sure about a question, mark it and come back later. Sometimes there will be related questions that will jog your memory. If that doesn't work eliminate the most obvious wrong answer and then move forward with eliminating answers.

    Good Luck

    Default Ports?

    There are lots of ports on the test? I will make sure to hit those hard. I'm afraid of Unix/Linux as that is one of my biggest weaknesses.

    There were quite a few of them on mine, but you also have to sift through many log messages.

    There are some UNIX references, and some in-depth ones, at least there were for me. A few were kind of obscure, stuff you wouldn't really know unless you'd worked with it or studied it specifically.

    Thank goodness CompTIA allows its candidates to come back to questions later. I left some of them blank and then guessed on the final pass before turning in the exam.

    At least on my exam, the first 10 questions were the hardest and they got easier from then on. So don't panic! If a question totally stumps you, mark it for review and answer the remaining questions first.
