Materials used:

-ITProTV course/Transcender practice exams

I took this on a whim, albeit a ballsy one. I watched about 2/3 of the ITProTV course and went through the Transcender Flashcards and confident enough. The boss of my boss was asking around if any of the people in my department had a non-vendor security cert. I figured I could handle it no problem because I've been skimming this stuff for a while, and took a course for Security+ two years ago. I should have taken it more seriously because I barely squeaked by. The studying for my Linux+ and MCSA actually helped quite a bit. Overall it was a confidence booster for me that I could pass on little direct preparation. The knowledge must be retaining itself somehow lol.

PS The testing center was in an entertaining ghetto. I was interrogated by either an undercover cop or a drug dealer as I was smoking a cig outside the testing center after the test XD

    When I took the A+ 802 it was in a dive called Ponchos tax service, crap all over the place. It was the only place that had a good time. They had a testing computer in a closet with a camera. I think the computer and camera system was the most expensive items in the office. They must make a few dollars hosting these tests.

    Congrats on the pass !!
