Created the user account and use it for encouraging folks here, especially young ones. let folks know I am a kind of old, a 57 yearold guy, and not doing much relating the network work. You know it has a considerable portion on the network. I am doing application administrative work. I had had OCP DBA more than 10 years ago, at the time i told myself , this was my last certification. Well, the job asks me to have Security+ now.
Studied for 2 months, used Gibson book and the MeasureUp practice tests. I passed it on the 1st attempt.

Good Luck all.

    Proverbs 6:6-11Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler, Provides her supplies in the summer, And gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
    When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep, So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler And your need like an armed man.

    Congrats. I'm just a little younger than you. That exam took everything I had and I thought I was "Mr smarty pants". I left the exam room with a passing score and a headache

    Congrats guys! And I agree, age is meaningless in I.T. It's all about the desire to learn.

    Congrats! Don't be discouraged, behind IT we're all only judged by our knowledge and the ability to acquire it.
