Must have missed the first one. I took the Strata IT Fundamentals last year which was a nice confidence booster. Since, I've only done A+ which wasn't bad either. I took this exam and it felt like an updated version of the Strata IT Fundamentals exam. Didn't take too long, it was free, and I could take it from home. Looks like a lot of other people took it as well as the beta is closing tomorrow. Don't know if anyone else would like to take this but I thought I would let everyone know.
