Passed CWTS!!

hey just came back to say I passed my CWTS exam and it was easier than I expected. It was certainly the easiest one i've done so far. I did it because I wanted a better understanding of wireless fundamentals and felt it would be a nice stop gap exam before I do CCNP. I finished the exam in about 30 minutes and was surprised at how easy it was.
I've now attained 6 certs in the space of 11 months. Really pleased with my effort as didn't think i'd ever achieve more than two of those. Just goes to show if you focus and work hard anything that you previously thought impossible (subjective of course) is actually possible. It really has given me a lot more confidence in myself to do things
I'm an Xpert at nothing apart from remembering useless information that nobody else cares about.

    Way to go! Congrats on your accomplishments in the last 11 months!
    Had all of my WGU courses but too much to keep up on. I am working at it, will let you know when finished.

    Congratulations on passing the CWTS exam!icon_thumright.gif


    And yes, the CWTS is a rather easy and non-technical exam. That's why I recommend people already skilled in using 802.11 jump directly to the CWNA. Still, the CWTS is a great leaning experience.

    Congratulations!

    My only problem with taking the CWNA instead of the CWTS, is that you have to renew every three years, and if you are not in a wireless role you can't go for CWNE.

    Thank you
    Yes I probably will move onto CWNA later but for now going to start on CCNP and try to get that under my belt.:)

    This is what I was trying to find out, is the CWTS worth taking or would I be better off with the CWNA. I just got my ccna-wireless so I figure there should be some overlap but I didn't want to go for a lower level cert, nor did I want to jump in too far over my head.

    There is not as much overlap as you think, although I do recommend CWNA over CTWS if you have experience with WLANs already. If not read the CWTS book (don't go for the cert) then go for the CWNA.

    I found the CCNA:W did not cover enough 802.11/RF in my opinion.
