Prepare and get certified for COMPTIA Network+ Certification in Milwaukee Area

I am currently attending MATC going for the IT Computer Support Specialist program. I plan on taking this exam by the end of this semester because I want to land an internship this summer so by writing this guide this will help me research a lot about the exam so that I can be prepare. The A+ Exam is one of the best beginner certificate to get because it shows employers that you are knowledgeable about both software and hardware. This exam has to be renewed every 3 years because of the advancement in software. If you study at MATC like I do there are benefits to preparing for the exam because the school supplies the students with programs like Transcender and CBT Nuggets. CBT Nuggets is very different from Transcender because it is just videos and does not give questions straight from the exam like the other program. The first thing to preparing for the certification test is make sure to have some ground rules like learning the basics, practice tests, courses that teach this subject. First rule is taking the Network+ course, this course will teach you what you need to know and also give you hands-on experience. The hands-on experience will how you how it will be in office environment you’re going to be working in. After finishing the course, you can take practice tests or buy exams that will help you enhance your knowledge on the certification exam. The program that is helped me study for this exam was called Transcender. Transcender prepares you by showing you questions straight from the exam. After practicing for...

I saw this article on the website, and have been trying to adhere to it as much as possible. I actually printed a copy and posted it on my bedroom wall, kitchen fridge, and inside my laptop case, as reminders. I hope this will also help some of you as well.

There is nothing worse than to realize you have a ten page paper due the next day or five quizzes you just remembered that need to be taken. Procrastination is one of the worst things you can do to yourself during finals time. Planning out your assignments for each week should do wonders on those stress levels. This way you can do one small task at a time throughout the week. The last minutes occurrences and the quality of your work will improve with this method. Get to bed Whatever you do, don’t pull an all-nighter, especially during finals week. They just don’t work. Sure, you get tons of last minute work done, but at the cost of a sleepless night? Sleep deprivation does not improve work, it makes it look sloppy, and professors can usually tell when something was done the night before. And on top of all that, the stress on your body after not getting any sleep is more harmful than good. Our bodies need sleep to stay functional, and a sleepless night actually puts ore stress on your body. Start a study group Starting up a study group with friends and classmates can also...
