Project+ help

wayers22wayers22 Member Posts: 37 ■■□□□□□□□□
I need a little help guys. I plan on enrolling into WGU within the next few months, however I want to knock out all of the Comptia exams first. I currently have A+ as well as Net+ accomplished. I am now studying Security+. I would like to accomplish Project+ at the same time I get my Sec+.

My question for the board is this: Would acquiring Sec+ and Project+ at the same time be too dificult. Also, I keep seeing different Project+ exams (2009 and 2003), which one should I study for? And what book should I get?

Thanks for your help. Any advice is appreciated.

    I really don't think it would be a big problem to do both at the same time. The hardest thing about the Project+ is how boring it is to study. Study for the new one, and if it does get to hard focus on the Security+ since finishing it this year nets you a lifetime cert icon_thumright.gif

    Which book are you using? I decided to do the project+ now because I've read about how easy it was. I started studying for the 70-680, but it was very boring (to me).

    I don't think there's an academic code available for Project+ 2009, yet, so count on taking the test based on the 2003 objectives. I just took mine a couple weeks ago (and got my card/cert in the mail today).

    I didn't look at the 2009 objectives, but the passing score for 2003 is only 499/900. The material is dry, non-technical, and resources are limited, but you can definitely knock it out in under a month. The book WGU sends you is good, the practice tests they require are decent, too.

    Yeah, I've been having a tough time finding information on the exam. I actually want to get it in before enrolling at WGU. Do you happen to have an ISBN for the book? Or the title?

    This book will be sufficient for either Project+ exam:

    Amazon.com: PMP Exam Prep, Sixth Edition: Rita's Course in a Book for Passing the PMP Exam (9781932735185): Rita Mulcahy, PMP: Books

    Also, I don't think that it's too tough to study for both at the same time. I've taken both exams; for the most part they primarily test your ability to remember material.

    This is the book WGU uses for the exam. It's really dry and difficult to read.
