Passed Server+

H3||scr3amH3||scr3am Posts: 563Member
As a fun little extra, since the ProctorU deal is on, I took the Server+ hot off finishing my A+/Net+/Sec+ trinity.

I used the PrepLogic Mega guide and read it over the past couple days, and sat and passed the exam today, got an 827/900, so I'm pleased with myself, a lifetime cert for just over $100, not a bad deal if you ask me.

I'll be working towards the Project+ next hope to squeeze it in before this proctorU deal disappears.

    Congrats! I wouldn't be surprised if they pull the CE same bait and switch on this cert too.

    When does the ProctorU deal end?

    2/16 but I wouldn't wait. It's too cheap and convenient.

    I've tried searching for this Mega Guide...anyone have a link?

    Oh, I guess saying "I tried searching for it" didn't imply I searched for it..
    Nonetheless, I'm going to assume what you're saying is that they are no longer called PrepLogic and are now called LearnSmart and you didn't know how to convey that.

    I didn't mean anything like that...I actually did search for "PrepLogic Mega Guide" on Google. That's how I found it originally. Ask H3||Scr3am; he msged me a while back about it. Did not mean to convey any condescending nor patronizing sentiment...

    No man, you're good, I'm not upset. I did a lot of googling, but the only site I find is "LearnSmart" and all of their test prep is older certifications that have already been replaced.

    Congrats!

    the guide was enough because you got many comptia certs before (previous knowledge) .. or its enough by it's own ?
  • H3||scr3amH3||scr3am Posts: 563Member
    I'd say that having the other Basic CompTIA certifications certainly helped me, they each covered certain other bits of the server+ guide.

    is proctoru reliable and guaranteed ? have you received your certificate yet ?
  • H3||scr3amH3||scr3am Posts: 563Member
    my certificate is still in the mail, in all honesty, I've only received the physical copies of my A+ and Network+ at this point... they seem to take forever to get here. But on certmetrics I have my pdf copy of each of my certs, and after doing it on proctoru, it got to cert metrics in 2 business days, so yes they're reliable.

    Yup! I got Cloud+, Server+ and Project+ on ProctorU! They give you your score sheet right away on your Pearson Vue site.

    I got my certificate/card for Sec+, Cloud+ and Server+ - it takes a really long time to get out like a month.

    I've never heard of ProctorU. I see you can take online proctored CompTIA exams there.... Are there any other certification vendors available?
  • TerikanTerikan Posts: 10Member ■□□□□□□□□□
    I know that the proctorU deal was only supposed to go to the 16th, anyone know if they extended it at all?
  • PsychoData91PsychoData91 Posts: 138Member ■■■□□□□□□□
    I looked it up on proctoru's website and it still let me check out at the $100 price yesterday. I called their support and the didn't know when it would end.
  • A.HazemA.Hazem Posts: 6Member ■□□□□□□□□□
    i've just passed my CompTIA Server+ exam on proctoru. The 99$ deal will end on 28th of feb.

    i've only studied preplogic mega guide and solved the latest **** on exam collection. both can give you the knowledge to pass the exam.

    Finally i did it :D
  • PsychoData91PsychoData91 Posts: 138Member ■■■□□□□□□□
    I just tried to take it myself, had a few problems and never actually got to take it (Apparently Pearson is doing maintenance they didn't tell anyone about). Rescheduled it tomorrow for less money than I paid before.
