Passed The Net+ Exam

Afternoon everyone. Just wanted to report that I took the exam today and passed by the skin of my teeth, but a pass is a pass. Some of the questions were pure head scratchers. Up next is the Sec+ then Project+ to wrap up the term @ WGU.

    Curious, how long did you study for and what's your past experience in the industry?

    Grats? What material did you study? Is this supposed to help if we're not at WGU?

    I'm starting this class today at WGU. From what I've read on the WGU subreddit, the Ucertify materials are horrible, and I'm going to use the Mike Myers course on Lynda and the Professor Messer videos.

    Ucertify is a waste and it's sad the mentors try to push you to use it as a study guide for the exam. I'm currently studying for the Sec+ and using Professor Messor videos.

    I used Ucertify plus Professor Messor videos along with some experience I've gained while working in IT.

    It's funny. I'm taking the course to get Sec+ at the moment and my mentor advised to just use my Darril Gibso book instead.

    Only thing that's truly helping me with Sec+ is the PM videos and the fact that I've had some type of encounter with this material prior so I'm familiar. I had to fight with my mentor about Net+ because he wanted me to do UCertify before I took the exam and I wouldn't budge on using that material.

    The only thing I find useful with uCertify is the test questions. Can't have too many practice questions

    I have an awesome mentor. I told her about these comments on both this board and the WGU subreddit, and she's totally cool with me using other materials instead of uCertify.

    Glad she's understanding. My mentor doesn't get it and I'm still not sure why he feels the need to talk to me every week 3 months in to the term. My last mentor was the absolute best. When I told him I was ready it was no second guessing.

    Is that all you used for Network+? Ucertify and Professor Messer. Which Ucerity course exactly? Congrats

    I would NOT recommend UCertify unless you're already familiar with networking and can use UCertify to brush up. It was included with my Net+ course @ WGU. Professor Messor videos are clutch.

    Thanks for the congrats everyone. I have Sec+ scheduled for next Tuesday, but might move it to Friday or Monday. I'm ready to get it over with honestly.

    Congrats on getting your network+. Just wondering if you can give an example of how some of the questions were worded?
