801 for the Second Time

ashleyykkashleyykk Member Posts: 10 ■□□□□□□□□□
I've been studying non-stop for about a week. My only big concern is remembering RAM and intel/amd material. Last time I took the test was in January. I was off by 4 or 5 questions. Really, really nervous for tuesday. I've been watching professor messer, watching 801 study guides on youtube, and taking practice test and doing decent on them. I just don't want to fail again, and waste the money AGAIN. In class, I'm a great student but when I sit down for test I can't even remember my own name icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_eek.gificon_eek.gificon_eek.gif Any **** sheets, HELPFUL test I can use would be great!

    Being that you were only couple questions away from passing the first time, going over the material again should be more than enough to get you through this time. For topics you think you will have hardest time remembering, RAM/intel/amd as you mentioned, make yourself some notecards with the information on it. Arrive at the testing center about 20 mins early and go over these notecards.

    examcompass.com has some decent practice tests if you havent already looked into them.

    Write down what your weak spots are and summarize the topics on paper. Arrive at the test site early looking at this paper before you have to lock it up and write down as much as you can on the white board asap.

    I'm taking my test at a testing center college type thing, I guess you could call it. I'm going with the rest of my class, it's quite a drive up there. I will probably probably study on the way, but not too much I'll probably get anxious lol.

    I take my test tomorrow aswell. I'm rather nervous. First time taking it.

    What was/is your experience with computers the first time you took the test? Have you been using and tinkering with computers for years? or did you go from Zero to Hero just with studying?
  • ashleyykkashleyykk Member Posts: 10 ■□□□□□□□□□
    I'm only in high school, and this is my first year with computers.But I've always been around computers. I don't have any outside experience ethier. I took the test the first time and really didn't have much knowledge,but I could tell you basic stuff. I was only a couple of questions away from passing. That was four months ago, I think hopefully I learned more and hopefully it will show by me passing tomorrow. I have probably non stop studied all weekend.

    Sounds good. I'm a couple years into college, but have decided I wanted to get this certification to hopefully find a decent IT job while I finish school. I have been "gaming" on computers since I was 5 years old... and tinker/building them ever since BUT I also have no outside/professional experience. That plus a few months of studying I hope I can pass 801 & 802 on my 1st attempt.

    I take mine tommorow at 10:00am... GOODLUCK to you!

    Ashley, if you see this before you go take the test today, relax on the drive to the service center. Let that poor brain have a rest. And good luck.

    For those wanting to know I passed with a 751. I honestly think anyone can pass this test. (801) I am only a sophomore (16) girl in high school. And this is my first year in IT
