Passed CompTIA Storage +

W00t passed the CompTIA Storage + exam. I got a 732/900. Passing was 720.

Boy was that a hard exam, had to really think and use process of eliminatation.

Now to redirect my full focus toward ICDN2 which I just finished OSPF and EIGRP in Odom's OCG book or roughly 250 pages left in the book....

Glad this exam is over with and it renews my other CompTIA certifications and it's now a life certification.

Must keep my momentum, on a side note I found a cocktail of nootropics that really work for me now with learning, focus, memory, and alertness in my brain. I'll post a blog on it on my website for all to use. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    Congratulations! I am thinking about switching over my studies to that one so that my other CompTIA CE certs can get renewed. What resources did you use and which one(s) were the most useful?

    Only used the CBT Nuggets and Pluralsight subscription for the videos. Nigel's book on Storage + was good but extremely boring, his Pluralsight videos were more entertaining.

    Did nothing but video review with them both for 3 weeks, roughly 30 hours a week of watching them over and over. Used them recently in our backup DR fabric and methods, so that was proof of concept for me and helped on exam.

    I have a Pluralsight subscription, so I will watch those videos and probably pick his book up...just to put a few more pennies in Nigel's pocket. Not to mention, the book looks like a decent resource to have on hand.

    it's a good read indeed. Bear in mind that CompTIA is retiring it Jan 16th so if you are studying keep that in mind. :)

    How long did it take you to study?

    Currently going through the book and CBT Nuggets. Did you take any practice exams?

    1 month exactly, book took me two weeks and videos took me about 2 weeks just watching them over and over again until my head got tired of Storage. No practise tests, just home-lab NAS and SAN/NAS deployments at work and past expereince.

    Bear in mind I was also reading the OCG for ICDN2, I'm up to chapter 17 as of tonight, as of Friday I was up to Chapter 12. I was balancing study between them both, now it's just ICDN2.

    ...but the VCP6-DCV and MCSA 2012: 70-410, and CompTIA Project+ exam books are staring at me, so I'm pressing onward to passing the R&S so I can do them soon.... :)
