PASSED with a 720

passed today, thank god. icon_confused.gif

was a good mix of everything, troubleshooting, scenarios, alot of netbios stuff, alot of router stuff, a few ipv4/ipv6 questions that were definitely like a foreign language to me...

i thought i would get a higher score, but all that really matters is a passing score.. all in all it took about 2 months and some change...

i used the mike meyers book, the notes from here (Thanks!), the examcram2 practice tests, and any free practice tests i can get my hands on.

i cant decide on whether i should go for CWNA or 70-270. i think im leaning more towards CWNA because i have always been fascinated with wireless, but MCSA would look real nice on a resume....what do you all think???

o yea, im gonna get the ETA rollover as well, anyone on here do that? did it work out ok??

    Unless you plan to work with wireless networks and actually be able to apply the knowledge you'll pick up from preparing for the CWNA, MCSA seems like a better option to me. Though I agree CWNA is an interesting one for after Network+. The best one will probably be the one that will have the most influence on your career right now, which depends a lot on your current situation and plans for applying for certain jobs. If that all doesn't matter much, then I suggest going for the one you find most interesting.

    You can find more info about the ETA rollover option here:

    For my situation I am going for the MCSA/MCSE first. For you it may be different though.

    I did the rollover and it worked out just fine.

    Congrats. Just did mine this morning with 815. Was a whole lot easier than I expected. No questions about the 8 steps of troubleshooting. A bunch of DNS, WINS, DHCP questions. Only a couple of questions on OSI which really shocked me and a few more wireless then I expected. Used Thompson course from my employer, Actual Test, and tech notes here (thanks!). Already have 270 bagged so think I'm going to hammer out 290,291 and use A+, Net+ for elective for MCSA then decide where to go from there.

    Congrats both of you! I would agree that unless you are going to apply the wireless on the job now, the MCSA route would probably be the best. It is a more recognized cert, and the A+/Net+ combo works as an elective.

    To Sunny Winters and Booboo2, too.

    I have no advice to give about career paths seing as I don't take my Net+ until Friday the 21st and I haven't yet decided which way I'm going to go. Anyway, best of luck to both of you.
