    Is it wise to study for the exams separately? I have all the resources you could imagine. CBT nuggets, Pluralsight, Pro Messer, Mike Meyers Udemy videos, exam cram, all in one book, quitins A+ book THE LOT. I would feel safer studying for these separately if i go for them both it would reduce my chances of passing greatly, but I'd like to know if this hinders me?

    Whenever I study for certification I use 2 sources of learning material - a book and a CBT. I then will typically use Boson ExSim for practice questions. I would not recommend using too many sources as it will take you much longer to get through the material and may confuse you even more.

    Yeah you're probably right Mike, I think I will use the udemy videos and exam cram but may also use pro messer. Did you study for the A+ as separate exams?

    Yup, also done them separately mate. I used Meyers A+ All In One and Messer.

    Took the 801 (Going back a few years) then took the 802, two weeks later (Xmas Eve if I remember correctly).

    Depends on how you learn but I find, videos, reading and practice exams work best for me

    If I had it my way Id always go for classroom training, the A+ ran at my local college for awhile but due to lack of interest they removed it :(

    I am with you there, I prefer the idea of socialising with others on the training and much prefer it to self study (although I did just have to do that for the VCAP exam and it was hard).

    Study buddy for my next VCAP I think.
