Not the best score I've ever had on a CompTIA exam but I'll take it if it means I can stop studying this stuff! This was by far one of the driest subjects I've had to go through and I'm glad it's over.

For study, I watched the SkillSoft modules and read the Sybex Project+ book, both of which were more than sufficient.

    Congrats on the Pass

    i am been looking to see if any vendors do a CBT Series for this exam . I have access to the Skills Soft @ work but was worried if that would be sufficient along with the books to pass this exam

    Dr IT -

    SkillSoft's modules for this are a bit better than a lot of their other training. The best ones I have seen overall are the CBT Nuggets videos, which I rented for a day to see if they were worth paying for. They are, but I don't have that kind of scratch to spend on a class I wasn't interested in, and was trying to finish as fast as possible to satisfy the WGU requirement.

    I hope to follow in your footsteps soon.

    Congrats on passing. I agree that the Sybex book is pretty much all you need. I did find the charts in the Phillips book to be helpful. I memorized them and wrote 'em out before the exam. Helped tremendously on the formulas you may encounter.

    Just started studying for this one for WGU. Whats the average amount it takes to pass this? Weekend reading? 2 weeks? 1 month?

    I curious because I wanna stay on track with WGU, so far 1 class per week. And a whole buncha hurry-up-and-wait for taskstream (tis eviiiil)

    I spent about 5 weeks or so on this course, mostly due to procrastination. It all depends on experience, though, for the other courses. 1 class per week won't work once you get to the Microsoft courses. Prepare to spend some time on those, unless you are extremely experienced at Server 2008 R2.

    Paul I spent about three weeks diddling with the book, and about a week and a half studying it hardcore. I spent the first three weeks of the semester finishing up my studying for ICND2, so that took most of my focus. That said, 3-4 weeks may work for you, or it may not. I have a lot of experience with Business Process Improvement and Lean Six Sigma, and there are a lot of carry over concepts between those and project management.
