So, got to the testing center (45 minutes away) this morning about 20 minutes before my 9:15 slot. Go inside, the guy there tells me he doesn't have me scheduled for an exam, not at 9:15 or any other time :O A 45 minute phone call with pearson later, I am now scheduled for the exam at 11:30 in another testings center, 30 minutes from home in the opposite direction...

Get to the 2nd testing location, sit down, start the exam, brain **** everything from my head to the eraser board they give you, and proceed to need NONE of it... weirdest CompTIA exam I have ever sat... it read more like a Sec+ exam got dumped into the Network + exam bank... hour later I passed by the skin of my teeth with a 725. And then the test centers printer doesn't print :O

Finally the test center lady calls someone and they walk her through re-printing the form. At least the last of the certifications I had to re-take for WGU are complete :D Now on to the Linux + also for WGU at least its a net new cert for me :)

    Congrats! That would be quite frustrating. As for your take on the Network+, yeah, I felt that way too. Quite similar to the Security+ exam.

    Congrats! I've been planning to take this too, as it'd help my resume out and my future plans to attend WGU. Hopefully it's not too difficult.
