Passed Hardware and OS today

Glutton for punishment here who decided to take both today. Due to circumstances somewhat beyond my control I had less than a week to prepare for it and had to schedule it last week- hardware 763 and OS 707. I used this site's practice exams and notes along with Mike Meyer's Passport book. The BIG thing is I have been in the field for two years in a part-time, mentor/internship while going back to school. Without it, scheduling and studying for this exam with any expectation of passing would have been very hard.

I recently re-graduated from a local Tech College and took A+ courses using Jean Andrews' books. Did not use them for studying for the exam. I find her books to be good for basic, foundational knowledge, in a classroom setting where you can get some hands-on but as far as actual testing preparation, she would not be useful.

Up next will be the CCNA!!!!! Targeting Nov/Dec for that one.

    Congrats! I'm taking the Hardware test tomorrow at 3:00. I'm to the point where I'm not even nervous any more, I just want to take it and get it over with so I can start studying for the OS!

    Quite a few people take their exams the same day, generally I encourage it since a person works with the 'WHOLE' computer they should be tested on it. So good for you for taking both and getting things done!

    'i' before 'e' except after 'c'.... weird?

    Thank you all. Plantwiz, I had always heard that it was best to take them apart from one another- NOT on the same day. Oh well! Just goes to show how much I know!!
