OK! Alright. Things didn’t turn out quite the way I expected for Dub Nation. We did end up with the best regular season NBA record ever (73-9), and another MVP trophy for my man Steph. Unfortunately we got surprised by LeBron and his Cavaliers in the Finals, and the less said about the release of the Curry 2, the better. It was a disappointing denouement to a great season, but I do still have reason to celebrate — the girls’ soccer team I coach went undefeated for a third straight season. (We were a defensive powerhouse, shutting out opponents more than 57 percent of the time and compiling a goal-differential of 4 to 1.)
Oh yeah, and TestOut’s Network Pro 4.1.0 just successfully passed CompTIA’s CAQC testing process. That means Network Pro is now an official CAQC training product and “completely covers the objectives for CompTIA’s Network+ N10-006 exam.” To be clear, Network Pro already covered those objectives, but now it’s has been approved through CompTIA’s partner processes.
Earning CAQC accreditation is like winning a title. According to CompTIA, it’s “a rigorous approval process that provides candidates assurance that the approved courseware is based on modern instructional design theory with exam objectives correlation. Students, training organizations and educational institutions recognize the CAQC logo as the quality trademark of CompTIA certification materials.” Like the Warriors, Network Pro was already an embodiment of greatness. Also like the Warriors, a few new additions have made it even better.
Network Pro still contains the usual excellent demos, videos, labs, and practice tests. With the update, we fixed typos, edited sections for clarity and accuracy, and updated practice exam preparation materials to ensure they contain the latest information. We also added Firefox to the list of supported browsers for all labs, and fixed that pesky problem of simulations not loading in Google's Chrome browser or in Mac OS. One other convenient update is the addition of a print button to the simulation Lab Report window to allow immediate printing of your scores. Network Pro is better than ever and CAQC accreditation is another guarantee that students will be getting the best examination preparation courseware on the market.
The CAQC stamp of approval does take some sting out of Golden State not winning the title. Besides that, it was still a great year and I’m looking forward to the new season. As my favorite motivational speaker Matt Foley would say, it’s time to get “back on the right track.” Golden State has made a few changes, saying good-bye to Harrison Barnes and nabbing big man Zaza Pachulia for a song. They also picked up some guy who just moved here from Oklahoma. I’ve got a good feeling and I know that my boys are going to be tanned, rested and ready, and prepared to win another title come fall.
Also, anyone want to buy a pair of Curry 2s? Anyone? Come on! I invested heavily and need to unload a garage full of these things.
