Hello All,
Today I passed my 901 & 902 exam. I studied for approximately 6 weeks total and passed both on the first try. I wasn't really going for a high score I just wanted to pass. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Both 901 and 902 were pretty much the same in difficulty for me. The material I used to pass is as follows:

Professor Messer videos/notes
Mike Myers Udemy videos/test
Exam Cram study and test books (didn't really use this often)
crucial exam
exam compass (simulation and tons of questions)
comptia's certmaster (Great Investment!!!!)

My job is pretty relaxed so I can study as much as I want. I really think that helped. Overall it was a challenge because I didn't know what to expect but I am glad I accomplished what I set out to do. Network is the next one to tackle. Last but not least I want to say to anyone that is taking these exams......Your return will determine the investment you put into yourself no matter if its time, money or both. If I can do can you!!!

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but how do you actually get the simulation questions to work on They are just pictures.

    Good foundation to start with.

    Congratulations! Wow. My school gives us vouchers for 1 at a time. Both in one day? Good effort I'd think.
    My school uses Kaplan, but without the simulations on this website and Professer Messer for repetition on my commute, I think it would have been harder.
