    Hey all - me again,

    Just wondering whether I should book the exam and see how I get on. I am really unsure of what to revise now that I have read the book (MM AiO 6th Edition), there is such a wide spectrum of material covered that I just really don't know what to take notes on or revise. Im thinking of just booking the exam(s) and giving them a go as I have an inkling I may pass - and If I don't I will know what to concentrate on. Ive been looking for vouchers for Prometric for the UK but have yet to find any so may have to pay the £114.

    Thanks in advance for any advice/guidance on what you think I should do :)

    What have you taken notes on so far mate? Also how are you getting on with the tests at the end of each chapter?

    You can get two discount vouchers for pearsonvue by visiting www.gracetechsolutions.com

    the were £107 each when I took my exams make sure you buy international vouchers. THey e-mail you the voucher codes after 24 hours after you have paid then you enter the voucher codes in the payment section instead of your credit card number.

    As for revision either make notes on bits you feel important or highlight the book. Refer to compTIA for the objectives on each exam.

    Well the end of the chapter questions im getting all right - even after being tested randomly on them, which makes me think I can pass the exam and also makes it harder for me to know what to actually make notes on.

    The reason I was going to choose Prometric over PearsonVue is because there is a Prometric testing centre just down the road from me.

    Sounds good :) It sounds as though you're ready, just be calm, revise what you think you're weak on and take the exam.

    Let us know the outcome :)

    The only thing I would add is to stick to the exam objectives like glue. Unfortunatley I don't always do this and I make life rather hard for myself at times. If you can go through the objectives confidently and your comfortable with practice test it's probably time to go and claim another cert :D
