Lx0-103/104

I see a lot of people are still taking the 101/102 exam series instead of the 103/104. Is there a particular reason for this? I'll be taking 103 next week and I'm worried that there aren't a lot of reviews on it yet.

    Because a lot of people are still administering cent servers which aren't on 7.

    It could be because the 101/102 exams are still around to 30AUG. I was going to try and hurry and take these exams but I'll just wait until the new exam versions come out, then take them.
    Booya!!

    The new exam versions came out in April, but everyone's still taking the old one. I understand the need for a change over period for those who spent time studying the old material and what not, but considering the new one has been out for a while I figured I would see more people having taken it. I know I studied using new books, and the Linux systems I work with are kept up to date, which means I should hopefully be prepared to take a test on up to date material, not stuff from several years ago.

    I think people feel more comfortable taking 101 and 102 because there is so much prep material for it.
    Few want to take the plunge with the new exams.

    I just passed the 102. I don't want to be someone's guinea pig for a new test, and I think for WGU there isn't even an option for the new ones.

    After looking around, it doesn't seem like theres *that* much of a change to where it could alter your pass/fail based on that alone. If you know the material, it shouldn't be an issue

    My current WGU schedule is still for the 101/102 version (Semester ends 07/31).

    Spoke to my mentor two days ago about all the changes, including CUV1 Web Technologies being dropped from the B.S IT Security program (YAY !).

    Next month/semester (August 1st) they are converting to the new 103/104, which are my 1st two classes.

    @TampaIT: I'm in the same boat. I'm doing 103/104 as my first two starting in Aug. at WGU. 103/104 is now through uCertify at WGU. So far, I find that uCertify is lacking in presenting the material. I would have preferred LabSim instead. In uCertify, you miss out on the lecture and demonstration video for each topic. I know it's important to perform hands-on with your own distro of Linux, but I think those videos from LabSim helped out quite a bit for previous certs. Good luck with your coursework!
