801 Pass

ShdwmageShdwmage Posts: 374Member
Good Morning,
I passed the 801 yesterday. I would hope so with 15 years of experience. I had to do it for WGU, I didn't bother studying for it. 850 points

I probably would have had myself flogged if I didn't pass it. My biggest hit was in networking. Always is.

Words of advice to anyone taking the test:

Read the thing carefully. One word in the sentence can change an entire answer. Also memorize your networking stuff. I always get tripped up over some of the things about network security and encryption stuff.

Good Luck!

    Congrats on the pass. I passed 801 on Wednesday as well. I didn't have many networking questions per say, more wireless standard questions and scenarios than anything.

    I had 2 questions that were worded almost identical, but had different answers because of one word in the sentence. They are tricky folks, those CompTIA people!

    When you take MS exams make sure you take notes on the questions. Draw the network out if it helps. For me, it helps to see it laid out rather than in the block of text.

    Congratulations :D I passed mine today with 813, 90%. I, like you, didn't do much studying, building systems, and being the family Techie for 13 Years prepared me for a lot of what was on the test, somethings that tripped me up were the laser printer questions, and some of the dealing with prohibited content questions. Best of luck on your 802 :D

    Felt mine was a little odd... But passed.
