    If you have A+, Network+ and IT experience, these tests aren't difficult. You really don't need to study except for the web design, database and coding ones, since you'd obviously have to know about the topics. I took the security associate exam today and passed that. It was pretty simple, Sec+, Net+ and a little CASP/CISSP.

    I'm worried that I might be "over-prepairing" for this cert. I've been the reading the material from WGU.

    Yes...you are.

    When you and Xcluziv take this exam and pass it, just promise me that you guys will say "erpadmin was right..." That's really all I can ask...lmao.

    I stand by what I said earlier...you only need that mcmcse.com study guide. I passed WFV1 with a headcold.....lol.

    BOV1 is a different story...you will need to spend your "over-preparing" on that one.

    You guys will be fine. I think it took me less than 30 minutes for this exam. Most of it is common sense questions.

I thought to take a shot at it before they retired the exam, but Perl was just too much for me to pick up in the month or so I had left (I was also studying something else for WGU at the time).

    I am thinking, though, about getting that Web Site Specialist or whatever cert that's three exams including Perl, as I already have the other two done. But that's all a few months down the line.

    Since there are no real study materials for that Perl exam, I'll probably have to get a copy of O'Reilly's "Learning Perl" and use it to prep for a BrainBench exam prior to taking CIW's. I did read a couple of free books in PDF/ePub when I was shooting for the exam originally, but they just weren't enough. It looks like I would need "Learning Perl" for the exercises alone.

    I took the Javascript specialist exam last week and passed, as it was a requirement for WGU. I did very little hands on, pretty much read up on it for a week, and can say with all confidence I don't believe I could actually code anything beyond a basic "Hello World!" alert in javascript to save my life.

    Not the book alone, but following the course of study with youtube videos on any gotchas.

    For Database, I ended up reading parts of one print textbook I'd bought off Amazon, as well as eChapters from another text on eCengage. Relational algebra and. . . dang it, what was the other terminology were what tripped me up. I believe I used uCertify as well.

    On Foundations, I skimmed over their HTML text a little and did some practice tests (WGU's?). That was about all I needed. Even though it wasn't hard for me with my background, I'd still say it's a good IT overview exam. If I were hiring techs, I'd seriously toy with the idea of making them sit it to gauge their knowledge.

    With Javascript, I'd spent about a month studying an "ancient" book on Javascript/Activescript before I started WGU, and later probably another 2-3 weeks with that book and uCertify before I actually took the test. I think that course is a decent overview of scripting from a programming perspective, and is a good prep for Java (if possible, take it right before the Java classes!). If MS ever comes up with a scripting exam, it would probably be a better fit for the networking tracks.

    I think I'm finally ready to take the CIW Javascript exam. I just took a practice test:

    Start Date/Time 11/06/2011 08:27:16
    Time to Complete 0000:18:09
    Test Name JSSv1 PE JavaScript Specialist Practice Exam
    Final Score 92.73%

    I requested the voucher from WGU on Saturday, if they can get it to me tomorrow I'll sit the test on November 8th (I'm off work that day). Study materials have just been the .PDF's from certification-partners, provided by the school. I printed out every chapter, read the whole thing, then went chapter by chapter taking the practice tests, and finally went back over the ones that I did the worst on. Fortunately, this weekend I've been able to lock myself away and spend a lot of time on the material.

    The absolutely horrid online certification partners resources provided by WGU & CIW. I also watched most of the JS tutorials on thenewboston.com, and read through a lot of code snippets on w3schools.com.

    Congratulations...(also to be polite. )

    I actually spoke to someone on CIW's marketing team about this exam. They really need to change the name of this exam to something that reflects basic, entry-level knowledge of IT. Even with the HTML objectives aside, this exam tested me on everything I ever did with PCs/IT (and I do mean everything.) It felt very much like a comprehensive review of what I've done.

    In fact, for those who wish to break into IT, they should be required to take this exam first, just to see if they could even hack even the CompTIA A+ certification (which was much "harder" that the CIW 1D0-510 exam).

    In any event..."congrats....."

    I am scheduled for the js exam next week and feel under prepared for that based off the WGU materials. I'll give it a go and hopefully wont have to revisit it.

    1D0-635: CIW JavaScript Specialist -uCertify (WGU students should be getting that for free....)

    uCertify definitely helped me out for the 435 exam. Would have taken 635 but WGU wasn't ready for me to take the exam when I wanted to take it, so I opted for the 435 (against the course mentor's advice....I just wasn't going to wait another month for them to get their act together.)

    Can't say enough good things about uCertify for the CIW stuff. I've looked at their Oracle/Sun and ITIL materials as well, and they look just as good. Don't know about the MS stuff.

    But yes, definitely use uCertify religiously when studying for CIW stuff through WGU. You will not only stand a better chance of passing the exam more quickly, but you will likely learn new things from the uCertify materials alone (directly or indirectly, such as looking up their answers elsewhere to verify).
