I've been lurking in the background for the past few months and I thought it's about time to thank you guys and this forum for all your help and contribution to my certification studies. With techexams, I was able to attain the following certs:

Nov '09 - Network+
Dec '09 - Security+
Jan '10 - MCTS Win 7 Config
Feb '10 - CCENT
Mar '10 - CCNA
Apr '10 - MCP (70-290)
May '10 - MCSA (70-291)

Of all the exams, I find the Microsoft ones difficult, not because of the topic itself but how the questions are worded. It`s probably just me but it feels like they added words to the questions that don`t make sense just to confuse you. For now, I will take a couple of weeks reviewing what I`ve learned and then work on another certification.

My study routine is 2 hours of study on weekdays and around 5 hours on weekends along with my job. I watch CBTs first and then read the book so it's easier to understand. It took me an average of 1 month for each certification as most of the topics I've learned from school already. Self discipline is probably my best asset. So far, I haven`t failed any exam (phew). My near future goals are (1-2 years): CCNA Security, CCSP, CEH, MCITP EA. I`m currently a student working as a Co-Op Service Desk Specialist. I like my job as it`s 30% phone and troubleshooting then 70% administration (setup AD and VPN accounts, grant NTFS permission, setup network printer, GPO etc). It feels more like a Junior Network Admin.

Again, thank you very much for all your help. I will do my best to return the favor to the community. Have a good day.

    Welcome to TE!
    You should have come out of hiding earlier as you've been working on your certs. It's an inspiration to us all to see others succeed at their goals.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    you're welcome

    that's what's so great about this forum, everyone really does help everyone and for the most part, people leave their egos at the door.
    It's not important to add reptutation points to others, but to be nice and spread good karma everywhere you go.

    While we are a Certification Forum, this is what I found most impressive :D

    Education, Experience and Certification -- along with a little luck and some people skills and social networking -- will get you those great jobs down the road. But I'm guessing that you've already got that figured out icon_thumright.gif

    Welcome to the TE Forums!! Good Luck with your Studies icon_study.gif (and Certifications).
