Passed 801!

Just out of the exam.. passed with a score of 874.

Most of it was very straight forward and simple for me, only took me 25 minutes and I was confident enough with my first answers that I didn't have to back to review anything.

I studied 2 days for this using the Professor Messer videos but I must point out to any newbies that I had 4 years of laptop diagnosis and repair between 2008-2011 so the exam was pretty much written for me! :)

I have 802 scheduled for Wednesday.. I'm confident that will go fine also although I looked at the objectives and I will definitely need to go over things such as the difference between features/requirement for each version of windows (i.e. XP requiring a 233MHz CPU and 64MB Ram etc... why would you really need to know this?). Perhaps this wont come up but seems kind of pointless, particularly today but even 5 years ago wasn't a real concern.

I read 802 has a lot of command line questions, I'm pretty au fait with most of those they mention however a few of the flags for nbstat etc. I may need to revise.. but I don't see much time needed on this. I'm going to have the weekend to myself and then watch the Prof Messer videos for 802 over Mon/Tues to prep me for Wednesday morning.

    Congrats! I had took the A+ a few years ago, but I recently let it expire. I just enrolled in a Bachelors degree program at WGU and will have to take the A+ exams in January. I've been brushing up on the material and am surprised at how much I remember :D

    What test is next on your list after the 802?
    Goals for 2018: MCSA: Cloud Platform, AWS Solutions Architect, MCSA : Server 2016, MCSE: Messaging

    Thanks. Next up is Network+ and Storage+... I will study for both at the same time but due to the retirement of Storage+ on 15th Jan I will sit the exam on the final day (and hope I pass since it will be the last chance!).. N+ exam I will sit sometime in the last 2 weeks of January and if all goes well with those then I will move onto VMWare and AWS.
