Just finished the A+ 901 test on Friday with a 707, completing this for WGU. I plan on studying for 902 for a couple weeks before taking it.Study Recommendations: I used Ucertify mostly, i read the chapters mostly to cover material i was unfamiliar with and then did all the practice tests, pre assessment, post assessment and a couple generic labs. I also watched the mike meyers videos of udemy.

    UPDATE: Took 902 Friday 3/16 and passed. I found 902 easier than 901, maybe I was just given easier questions but I found the situational questions easier than the specific hardware specification questions. I used mostly Ucertify again for practice questions/sims and also used Professor Messer/Mike Meyers videos. The simulations are the hardest part but Ucertify prepared me well for them.

    Hardware questions are harder to study for because of sheer exposure. The folks who write questions often pull from experience and if you haven't had a lot of experience with the metal (depth and breadth of a lot machines) then you might struggle more than you would with the software that everyone has handled a whole lot. Later on when you've put your hands on a lot of machines you will look back and say, "oh yea. I would have asked that too."

    A pass is a pass, and congrats on this accomplishment!

    Congradulations! I've been studying really hard for my 902. Strangely enough i'm more nervous about the 902 than the 901 for some reason...

    I just started WGU and because my A+ was long expired, I have to take this course. I did the pre-assessment, to my dismay I got 75%. I'm hoping to brush up on the course work in about a week or two and knock out the 901.

    Congrats on your success!
