    I have had all the materials for several week now and done nothing... apart from ordering street guide IT tech to revise 602.

    Mainly because i have been more worried about getting a job and getting stressed out about that.

    Anyway, starting tomorrow i am going to study hard and get the A+ out the way ASAP.

    I am aiming for 2-3 weeks then 601, then 602 about a week later.

    That not taking into account any postage/booking delays.

    I watched the CB Nuggets material with a friend at the weekend i pretty much know my weaknesses.
    So it will be a quick read through Meyers, then making tables and flash cards for my weak areas and then loads of practice tests (that i have been collecting (rather still collecting) online) before I get the good stuff from advent.... then the dreaded booking :-)

    ... focus!! ..... I am sure i am not the only person who has this problem

    Cheers

    i got some part-time bookkeeping work that i can do from home.

    so I reckon i can spend about 3-5 hours a day on the A+ if I need to.

    If you're collecting practice tests online, then you've likely got a bunch of braindumps. You might want to ensure those are clean before using them... if that sort of thing matters to you.

    Good luck, dont feel you have to take the test if you dont think your ready! plan for your targets but if you need more time to full grasp a concept then I'd recommed taking an extra weeks or so.

    All the best

    I'm one of the worst procrastinators ever. I've been studying for 70-290 since 2005... seriously. :) Once I take ICND1, I'll be taking this test... finally.


    ... at least I hope. :)

    Yes they do, i'm reading it along side the Meyers book, for 601 the Meyers is better as a first read.
    The advent book is very detailed, not for noobies in my opinion.

    My friend had nuggets so we watch it, using it as a outline. In fact we picked up on one or two things in the Meyers which are'nt quite correct eg double sided memory.

    They do you still have to book it through them, otherwise how would they know when your available etc :D

    I been putting them through cerguard, a site i did'nt know about until i joined this site. :)

    I would like the moderators of this forum to maybe make a static read only thread, to list such tested sites.
    That would be ready useful

    no matter who or what you use you can never get enough practice exams / questions.

    Why? Certguard already offers that feature. And we certainly wouldn't want to provide a centralized list of braindumps... that would just make it easier for people to find them and use them!

    I strongly disagree. Poor questions can sometimes be worse than no questions at all.

    I think he means kosher sites, as opposed to the BD ones...

    Might I also suggest looking on youtube, you find all sorts of training videos on there! I think GBL did a thread on it??:blink

    Anyway, good luck with the exam mate:thumbleft

    I think you missed the point! A moderated safe list. To make it easier for people to find non brain dumps.

    Certguard doesnt offer this service the sites are not categorised. You could have a list of A+ here.

    which is why i suggested the above.

    Just because a site is legit doesn't make the questions worthwhile. I've seen poor training offered by legit sites.

    No, not a stupid idea... but if there are a few *really good* training resources (that are already heavily recommended), why waste time with the mediocre ones? ;)

    Umm... that'd be a good trick! Certguard doesn't provide training materials... Certguard merely indicates whether sites are legit or provide braindumps.
