In 2013 when I first started out to achieve my A+ certification I took a class through a community college that was textbook based and had limited labs. In May of 2014, at the end of the course, my instructor told me that I was ready for A+ and would be fine. I took the exam and barely passed receiving a 650 on the 801 when you need a 650 to pass. I took the 802 immediately after the 801 and bombed. After I failed I went through a free online video class and took notes and then went to take it again and I failed again by 1 question. It was not until I got into the TestOut labsims to get the hands on experience that I passed with a 94%. Immediately after my A+ I went through the TestOut Network Pro course. After taking the practice exams until I was scoring a 90% or better, I passed my Network+. TestOut’s material has helped me immensely in passing the certifications I need as a network administrator.
I have certified myself in A+, Networking, Security, CCNA and finishing the 70-410 all through Testout I can not tell you how this has transformed my career and my personal confidence in the IT world. I hope to pass along my complete satisfaction and success due in large part because of TestOut.
I wanted to share my success experience regarding the 70-680 exam from Microsoft. I have been working in tech for over 5 years and thought myself pretty experienced when it came to configuring and troubleshooting Windows. What I did not expect was the exam to be so difficult! I failed it once and continued my plan of study (which was at the time just a study guide published by Microsoft Press) I then failed it again and was feeling pretty low. I almost gave up and did not attempt the exam. It was then I decided to really study for the exam and purchased the “Configuring Windows 7” training from TestOut. I ate, slept, breathed TestOut for 2 weeks, going through each module in the course. I’m proud to say with only 2 weeks of studying with TestOut that I passed the exam on the third try. I have purchased the TestOut Linux Pro course and am currently using it for the Linux+ exam and can’t wait to get certified. I will definitely keep using TestOut for future certifications!
