Justin Forlenza, NY: “I loved the command line and the (windows) registry portions. I knew my way around command line and I knew my basics but I really needed to study PowerShell. It wasn’t just the social engineering aspects, you had to troubleshoot problems in a real work environment. Study the ITS blog, it was very helpful.”
Andrew Ware, IA: ” I put a lot of emphasis in studying for the A+ exam. For the networking module, we were given an un-configured router and had to go through the first time setup. I was able to configure my router because the instructions were very good. We had two interfaces we had to get working and I did not get either of them to work.”
Trent Kenny, WA: “Look what’s in the A+ guidelines, if you pay attention to that, you will do pretty well. Getting a goods nights rest before competition makes all the difference. It was a long days competition and it will really drain you.”
Ammon Turner, UT: “We were placed in a room with a team to answer phones and you have calls rolling in and you have to deal with customer issues in real time. We were working with upper management issues but besides that, we had other people in management coming in to tell us about other issues that were happening at the same time.”
Logan Perry, OH: “PowerShell really caught me off guard but I was familiar with Linux command line so that really helped. If you feel like you are not doing well in a module, don’t think it’s the end of the world. Just take it easy”.
Jerome Czachor, PA: “Learn command line and learn PowerShell! You’re going to need it.”
