Used a combo of CBT nuggets and Darril's book so a big thanks to Darril!

The book really gave more relevant info that the nuggets did.

Score was 848

Will probably carry on with MCITP:EA now although i was thinking about Net+ or Proj+

I lurked here for tips!

    Congrats and well done, great score, "I might have to lend you my nealing mat that I used for Darril's book" many of us, I have nothing but praise for his work. There are many authors out there, but not so many that have a telant for teaching the technical in a non-technical manner and use techniques which prove easy comprehension and simplicity for students.

    I agree CompTIA in many arenas is seen as being very unimpressive.
    They tend to be very basic exams that just test your knowledge of vocabulary.
