I don't have to take the exam til 9am so that will be sleeping in for me, and I'll have lots of time in the morning for breakfast and light review. Hope to post a pass tomorrow morning.
    Good luck! Just finished up chapter 5 earlier myself. Currently out of work so i've got nothing but time to study. Will more than likely finish the book Sunday at the pace i'm going. Should finish up Labsim Saturday. Plan to sit the test Tuesday afternoon, provided my funding comes through.

    Thanks man, yeah HUGE weight off my shoulders. I sat down and the first question I was stumped on, I'm like oh great this is going to go swimmingly. But the next like 15 were stuff I knew well and I flew through the test.

    Sorry about the abrupt announcement above, but I went straight to work after the exam and it was absolutely slammed, I barley had time to get logged in before i was berated with issues.

    I'm not sure what's next on the adjenda as far as certs go, I kind of want to go the security route and maybe stake that as my niche at my job, but I'm not sure yet.

    Me too

    With work and a potential job change and kids I am only realitically looking at getting Sec + at the dead line. And that will be with only 5 weeks of studying maybe only 4 so it will be cutting is close. I am wondering if it is worth the time, but I am going for it. I won't have A+ but you can't have it all.

    Anyway back to where to go I really don't know. I think I will stop certing and hopefully by then I'll be in a new job learning that instead. Current I am a remote desktop specialist and network analyst, I will be moving on to either a desktop support role, management/supervisor role, or supporting Production systems in a manufacturing environment. Out of those 3 2 of them will require at least 6 month of ramp up time. I think next year I might not even get one certification. I will be all about growing with the company.

    Well, the Sec+ is easily doable in 4 weeks with Darril's book. Very doable.
