    Hi there,
    I passed 220-701 and 220-702 yesterday. It's my first IT cert so it feels special. I found some of the questions quite ambiguous, awkward wording made me uneasy about my answers, but it ended all well.
    800 on the Essentials and 857 on the Practical.
    Many thanks to BosonMichael for the ExSim A+ tester materials. In my opinion, the Boson Environment exam questions are the nearest thing to the actual exam.
    I am not currently working in IT and I suppose the exams get tougher from now on. I am aware that the N+ would be the next step, but I haven't got enough time to study and take it by the end of December. So I am considering going for the MCDST by the end of March 2011 and probably the N+ after that.
    Should I get a job in IT before pursuing other certifications or should I just go for the MCDST?
    I'll start studying anyway and go from there, I suppose.

    You should start looking for jobs whilst studying for your next cert, infact you should have started before you got the A+ but anyways start looking now.

    Well done on the pass.

    Congrats, I can only agree on the poor use of language in the questions.

    Congratulations on the pass esspecially on the practical exam, that's a good score :)

    I'm pretty much in the same boat with regards to the next cert. Anyone have any words of wisdom on the matter? By the way hav you decided to definitely go for the MCDST?

    Thanks everyone.
    To J.Hinds, I bought some CBT Nuggets video tutorials before starting on the A+ and I'll buy the books asap, so MCDST is next. Good luck!
