    Default Passed with 825

    Not the best score I've ever had on a CompTIA exam but I'll take it if it means I can stop studying this stuff! This was by far one of the driest subjects I've had to go through and I'm glad it's over.

    For study, I watched the SkillSoft modules and read the Sybex Project+ book, both of which were more than sufficient.

    Congrats on the Pass

    i am been looking to see if any vendors do a CBT Series for this exam . I have access to the Skills Soft @ work but was worried if that would be sufficient along with the books to pass this exam

    Dr IT -

    SkillSoft's modules for this are a bit better than a lot of their other training. The best ones I have seen overall are the CBT Nuggets videos, which I rented for a day to see if they were worth paying for. They are, but I don't have that kind of scratch to spend on a class I wasn't interested in, and was trying to finish as fast as possible to satisfy the WGU requirement.

    Congrats on passing. I agree that the Sybex book is pretty much all you need. I did find the charts in the Phillips book to be helpful. I memorized them and wrote 'em out before the exam. Helped tremendously on the formulas you may encounter.

    I spent about 5 weeks or so on this course, mostly due to procrastination. It all depends on experience, though, for the other courses. 1 class per week won't work once you get to the Microsoft courses. Prepare to spend some time on those, unless you are extremely experienced at Server 2008 R2.

    Paul I spent about three weeks diddling with the book, and about a week and a half studying it hardcore. I spent the first three weeks of the semester finishing up my studying for ICND2, so that took most of my focus. That said, 3-4 weeks may work for you, or it may not. I have a lot of experience with Business Process Improvement and Lean Six Sigma, and there are a lot of carry over concepts between those and project management.
