Scored 825/900

How long did I studied for..? Started and bought the first book at 2018, it took long because I'm working full time as well.

Study Materials:
Todd Lammle's Study Guide (I read every single page and tried to understand it and did all 540 questions ;_;)
Craig Zacker's Practice Tests (I did all 1202 questions ;_;)
Professor Messer's notes (hardcopy printout) & his Youtube videos (I watched every single video on the Net+ playlist with the notes accompanying)
Udemy Jason Dion's 6 Practice Exams and Simulations (I did all 450 questions too ;_; My scores averaging 70-80)

Due to it taking too long for me to finish studying the whole book and have forgotten quite a lot of what I have studied previously, I had to revise this way day before the exam.

Re-read prof. Messer's notes Chapter 1 & 2
Re-watched prof. Messer's videos Chapter 3,4 & 5)
Go through all 75 flash card banks from the study guide.
Do a set of 90 questions from the study guide.
Do a set of 90 questions from the practice tests.
Review some hand-written notes by myself.

    The full time work and family responsibilities along with motivation makes it tough for certs. Well done on the pass. What is your next cert Khleh

    Thanks

    Congratz to you too! In my case, I didn't go for A+ reason being I felt my diploma already has got that part covered

    In my view, I consider A+ is good for the following:

    1. Those who are just getting into I.T without any background in I.T previously
    2. Those who are already in the I.T field, but wants to strengthen their foundation/to be proven capable, by being certified.

    For me, I went for Net+ because (1) I thought myself lacking strongly in networking, and (2) I picked up interest in it, and (3) I'm planning to land a job in networking for my next career (crossing fingers), thus taking this cert

    No way .... some of the folks on the board have me beat by miles.   I enjoy learning new things as well as the challenge of taking an exam and passing it. Some of the certs are for job requirements , and some are because I enjoy the topic.  It is kind of like a hobbie I suppose.

    Congratulations! You definitely have the momentum going on! You probably know this but it is surprising how much free resources Cisco also has!

    Not being much of a network guy I really enjoyed studying for Network +.  Hated security and A+ but REALLY enjoyed Network +.
