Just got back from passing the 220-901 exam! I made a 792. [DO NOT DISCUSS YOUR EXAM]

My study materials were the Exam Cram 801 and 802 book and the practice test question that came with the book. I used it to prepare me for a online class I took that covered the 901 and 901. It came with and text book and access to the Transcender practice test questions and two exam vouchers. The class lasted for about a week and then I studied more on my on for about 2 more weeks by printing out the 901 exam objectives and marking in my text book that was significant to the objective.

Now to start studying for the 902. Half way there.

    I'm wondering is there much overlap between the 901/902? I downloaded some sample 801 questions from the Comptia site and there was one question on there that would have been better suited toward the 802 as it was in regards to operating systems, so I am wondering whether the 901/02 has this overlap?

    Hello folks!

    I'm new to the forum - I was hoping someone could answer a quick question, which seems relevant to this particular thread.

    Last year, I took an A+ course in preparation for the 801-802 exams, but I never got around to scheduling the test. The course was a good one, and I did well, plus I'm comfortable using, troubleshooting and assembling computers, though I have no certifications. Would I be alright studying my notes and the 801-802 material for the 901-902, or would it be better if I took the course over?

    Thank you!

    Ok so going to be taking the 902 this Friday. I have been going over and over the objectives since last Monday studying them along with studying practice questions. Is there anything I should really focus in the days leading up to the exam?

    Hi, Mr. Servo-

    It sounds like you have some good experience and knowledge. I would recommend taking some practice exams for the 901-902, and if those go well, study some more and go for it. But if you feel a bit out of your league, I would suggest going for the 801-802 - you have until June 30, 2016 to pass both, which I'd say is doable if you study a decent amount 5-6 days/week.

    Hope that helps!

    I've had a interview yesterday for a entry level help desk position which I didn't get because I had no experience. From looking at all of the help desk positions I have applied for they all want someone who has at least 2 years of experience. How does one get experience if no one is willing to hire you? To me the A+ certification gets you into the interview but experience actually gets you the job. With that said I have a interview with Best Buy Geek Squad. It's only part time but if that is what it takes to gain experience then I am all for it. Also is would any of the MCDST certifications help landing a entry level job? Is there any help desk training that one can take?
