A new strategy to study for certification

binarysoulbinarysoul Member Posts: 993
Over the years I've done a lot of work and done a lot of reading in IT, everything from networking, OS, and a bit of security. I'm not an expert, but not a novice either; I'm always learning. I have often read different certification books and watched videos. But now I want to do something different.

I first want to bypass most if not all text/reading and jump directly into practical tasks and taking practice tests. For example, if a chapter is on DHCP I would setup and troubleshoot DHCP and then answer questions at the end of chapter.
In areas where I'm weak, I would definitely go back to details.

But overall, I will focus on (1) practical tasks (2) answering questions. This is my new strategy and not sure if anyone else has done it.

    He who loves practice without theory is like the sailor who boards ship without a rudder and compass and never knows where he may cast.

    Umm, you've made the wrong assumption from my post!

    What if you know nothing on the subject?

    It's in my post, but as I said "In areas where I'm weak, I would definitely go back to details."
