To those of you who might be worried about being prepared for the exam it was not as hard as I expected. That said, it wasn’t easy. There were only a handful of questions which could be worded a little better… And the simulations… Much easier than I thought.
I really thought the simulations would require me inputting commands from memory to do “something”… It was more like matching questions on a test or drop down menus.
It was my fear of the simulations that made me put off taking the exam right away, assuming I needed more practice. Nothing was further from the case and I psyched myself out.
Best advice, take practice exams once you’ve completed your studying and make sure you’re consistently passing. Also, skip questions you cannot answer right away and mark them for review. Another question might give you the clue you need to jog your memory. Mark that one for review too so you can quickly find them both at the end of the exam.
Lastly, thanks to all the various members of this sub reddit who post all kinds of great info, advice, and resources. They have been and will continue to be a huge help among my journey through the cybersecurity world.
