Server+ Tomorrow :X

Hey TE,

I am taking the Server+ tomorrow, I earned my A+ two weeks ago and now I'm shooting for Server+. I used Johnathan Lau's book and CBT Nuggets and of course my own experience with servers. I think I do pretty well with the questions asked and material covered.

Any tips or hints?

Time for a last minute cram session.

    Know the different raid types and when to use them and not to use them.

    As kris said, know the RAID levels and when they're appropriate. Retain all of the knowledge you learned taking the A+, know about backup methods, know about data loss prevention/disaster recovery, know server hardware, know better of what to expect by reviewing the objectives on CompTIA's website, know that the pass score is 750/900, and let us know how you do!

    Talk about a close call...

    With one week of studying CBT Nugget Videos (Didnt even get through them all) and skimming through JLau's Concise Server+ book & doing over 10 Practice tests off of Skillsoft...

    My final score was....

    Passing Score: 750


    So, I did have trouble with the RAID arrays - there was only a few questions on that. Tons of A+ Hardware stuff, like SCSI speeds, iSCSI, NAS, SAN and SAS specifics (Speeds, features, hardware).

    The scenerio's were moderate. Some networking cmd stuff, nothing most people wouldnt know. Some security stuff like Backup's, Images and disaster recovery.

    Overall the test was pretty good, it really makes you think a bit harder compared to A+.

    My next step is probably Security+ and MAYBE Net+.

    A+ / Server+ in 3 weeks isn't a bad record ^^

  • LittleBITLittleBIT Member Posts: 320 ■■■■□□□□□□
    It's still Valid. Get the Concise study guide by Mr. Lau, it's a good book, it's just notes, but enough notes to pass the exam.
