    Congratulations! That is awesome. If you don't mind me asking, what resources did you use?

    Thanks! I only really used the PrepLogic Mega Guide and tried to take as many online practice exams as possible. The exam was pretty straight-forward but I feel like I had to really pay attention to how the question was put together. Sometimes, the meat of the question would lead you one way only to have one little phrase make it a different answer.

    Thanks again!

    My scores haven't been that great but I'm just trying to methodically pass as many certification exams as possible to help with my job prospects (I'm doing quite a few so it's hard to really learn every intricacy - but I try!). I have pretty good experience so I really just scan over the exam guide the day of and try my best. So far, so good.... icon_cool.gif

    How was the Cloud+ test? What resources did you use..?
    Did you take it for your job, general interest or for a targeted follow up cert?

    It wasn't that bad but I was fresh off Sec+ and self-study of virtualization/hyper-visors for a couple of months which definitely helped me. The questions are more comprehensive where you have to incorporate fundamental knowledge in a few domains to figure out the answer. It's a step up in difficulty from Sec+ and Server+ - that's for sure.

    The only resource I used was the CompTIA Cloud+ Certification Study Guide by Stammer and Wilson - 7-day free Kindle trial...WOOHOO! That was really the only resource I could find - it helps but using it alone won't guarantee a passing score.

    Honestly, I took it because it was $99. Haha! BUT - it's actually one of the only vendor-neutral certifications in cloud out there (CCSK = expensive) and it's helped me with job prospects. I'm really trying to take advantage of this hot market. icon_cool.gif

    Nah. I was only going to take Security+, Linux+ and CASP from CompTIA but the deal(s) for Project+/Cloud+/Server+ was/were too good to pass up.

    I'm actually working on the CCNA (Cisco lab!), SIP School and others like eLearnSecurity certs.

    I passed the Cloud+ exam by just reading the book put out by Mc Graw Hill Publishing. If you recently studied for the Security+ exam I recommend getting the book and taking Cloud+ because there is some overlap in the material.

    Do you remember if there any or much RAID questions? That's what I have some trouble with.

    I plan on trying the server+ not too long from now.

    From what I've read, most people say there is plenty of RAID on the exam. It's something I plan to study heavily.
