    Default Pased the SKO-004 today

    So I just passed the SK0-004 Server+ exam today.

    I know most say that it does not mean much or a have ROI.

    I took a required college class on the subject matter and decided why not, "Its a lifetime cert, I'm already studying it and I let my A+ expire, Servers are also an area I'm really interested in."

    I studied for about three months just to be sure I had everything down, and it was the length of the class.

    I was surprised at the exam, not what I expected at all, it was difficult with a lot of odd ball questions that caught me off guard. Passed with an 852 out of 900. I did finds it challenging.

    I have 4 years experience as an IT technician, but I can definitely say I learned a lot preparing for this exam. Now on to the next cert.

    Awesome job!

    I had the same reaction when I took the exam back in 2010. For many years it was the most difficult exam I had taken, but that was until I took (and failed) a few Microsoft certs during my Bachelor's studies.

    So what IS your next cert?
    Master of Business Administration in Information Technology Management - Western Governors University (Started 10/1/16)
    Master of Science in Information Security and Assurance - Western Governors University
    Bachelor of Science in Network Administration - Western Governors University
    Associate of Applied Science x4 - Heald College

    Thanks and good to know. I was halfway through Network+ when I registered for the Server+ class , so I'm going to finish studying for Network+, plan on getting Security+ since there's an air force base near me. After that I will be going after more vendor specific certifications.

    Hi Halz! I'm plan to take the exam in about a month and I was hoping you could share what books and or guides you used to pass the exam? Or what areas I should focus on?

    Congrats, I have my MCSA but I've always been tempted to take this exam. I may take it next year just to add some CE's.
