completelyyy readyyy foryy myyy certification.yy Thisyy certificationyy wouldyy lookyy reallyyy goodyy
onyy myyy resumeyy foryy theyy futureyy andyy Iyy believeyy moreyy opportunitiesyy wouldyy comeyy myyy
way.yy Theyy onlyyy reasonyy whyyy Iyy wouldn'tyy takeyy thisyy rightyy nowyy isyy becauseyy lackyy ofyy

wasyy stillyy ayy requiredyy certificateyy toyy haveyy inyy theyy ITyy field.yy Iyy letyy ityy expire,yy theyy

toyy haveyy whenyy youyy areyy stillyy youngyy inyy youryy ITyy career.yy Onceyy youyy reachyy theyy five-

studyyy guide.yy Iyy tookyy ayy practiceyy testyy andyy thenyy focusedyy onyy theyy areasyy Iyy wasyy lackingyy

goodyy candidateyy foryy theyy job.yy Ifyy youyy didn'tyy getyy theyy certificationyy youyy hadyy toyy retakeyy
theyy classyy andyy tryyy againyy oryy youyy didn'tyy getyy theyy job.yy Iyy wantyy toyy getyy theyy practiceyy
examyy soyy Iyy canyy practiceyy beforeyy Iyy takeyy theyy actualyy exam.yy Iyy alsoyy wantyy toyy studyyy ayy
littleyy moreyy beforeyy theyy exam.yy Iyy wantyy toyy knowyy asyy muchyy asyy possible.yy Iyy alsoyy feelyy
thatyy gettingyy certifiedyy willyy helpyy whenyy Iyy pursueyy myyy bachelorsyy andyy myyy mastersyy
degree.yy Iyy thinkyy collegesyy willyy lookyy atyy myyy certificationyy asyy ayy plusyy ifyy Iyy decideyy toyy
goyy toyy ayy differentyy collegeyy foryy higheryy education.yy Iyy believeyy thatyy havingyy thisyy industryyy
certificationyy isyy criticalyy inyy achievingyy myyy futureyy goals.yy Ityy benefitsyy meyy byyy provingyy
throughyy testingyy thatyy Iyy haveyy learnedyy properyy methodsyy andyy procedures.yy Myyy planyy isyy
toyy moveyy intoyy ITyy management,yy andyy knowyy thatyy thatyy beingyy certifiedyy isyy ayy wayyy ofyy
showingyy skills,yy andyy alsoyy motivationyy inyy theyy fieldyy ofyy myyy choice.yy Iyy thinkyy thatyy
someoneyy withoutyy theseyy certificationsyy wouldyy getyy passedyy overyy foryy opportunityyy whereyy
someoneyy whoyy isyy certifiedyy wouldyy atyy leastyy beyy considered.yy Thisyy classyy isyy theyy 2ndyy
inyy myyy 2ndyy year,yy andyy Iyy planyy onyy atyy leastyy havingyy myyy A+yy completedyy beforeyy theyy
endyy ofyy thisyy academicyy year.yy Havingyy CBITyy Central,yy Iyy thinkyy willyy helpyy toyy putyy thisyy
planyy inyy actionyy withyy practice,yy tips,yy andyy videos.yy Thisyy inyy additionyy toyy myyy normalyy
academicyy loadyy ityy willyy assistyy inyy achievingyy theyy goalsyy thatyy Iyy haveyy setyy foryy myself.yy
Theyy studyyy planyy thatyy Iyy haveyy isyy toyy justyy continueyy onyy theyy pathyy thatyy Iyy createdyy whenyy
Iyy firstyy startedyy schoolyy again.yy Createyy smallyy goalsyy toyy helpyy accomplishyy theyy largeryy
ones,yy andyy continueyy toyy makeyy newyy goalsyy onceyy thoseyy areyy achieved.yy Theyy discountyy
voucheryy isyy goingyy toyy beyy ayy greatyy helpyy toyy meyy sinceyy Iyy switchedyy toyy ayy lesseryy payingyy
jobyy withyy reducedyy responsibilityyy whileyy Iyy wasyy focusingyy onyy myyy academics.yy Iyy haveyy
beenyy workingyy inyy customeryy serviceyy foryy years.yy Iyy hadyy triedyy toyy goyy toyy collegeyy
previously,yy butyy eventuallyyy droppedyy myyy classesyy afteryy theyy deathyy ofyy myyy father.yy Partyy
ofyy theyy reasonyy Iyy returnedyy toyy collegeyy isyy dueyy toyy theyy highyy levelyy ofyy anxietyyy directlyyy
causedyy byyy workingyy inyy customeryy service.yy Ityy wasyy ayy dailyyy amountyy ofyy stressyy toyy
knowyy thatyy Iyy wasyy simplyyy ayy cashier,yy theyy mostyy challengingyy partyy ofyy myyy jobyy wasyy
havingyy patience,yy andyy everyyy singleyy dayyy Iyy wouldyy haveyy ayy completeyy strangeryy shoutingyy
meyy down.yy Myyy goalyy isyy toyy neveryy experienceyy thatyy again,yy andyy toyy haveyy ayy jobyy Iyy
canyy enjoyyy doingyy withoutyy everyy feelingyy belittled.yy Iyy haveyy attemptedyy toyy getyy myyy footyy
inyy theyy dooryy foryy entry-levelyy ITyy jobs,yy butyy whenyy Iyy explainedyy Iyy wasyy stillyy takingyy
generalyy coursesyy (Iyy believeyy Iyy wasyy inyy ayy Nutritionyy courseyy atyy theyy time),yy Iyy hadyy
employersyy literallyyy laughingyy onyy theyy phone.yy Toyy thisyy day,yy I’myy stillyy confusedyy sinceyy
I’veyy knownyy peopleyy thatyy workedyy foryy thoseyy sameyy companiesyy thatyy hadyy begunyy withyy
little-to-noyy experienceyy butyy I’myy notyy goingyy toyy shareyy myyy theoriesyy asyy toyy whyyy theyyy
didn’tyy hireyy me.yy Havingyy thisyy certificationyy willyy allowyy meyy toyy finallyyy beginyy myyy
careeryy inyy IT,yy andyy receiveyy ayy decentyy wageyy thatyy willyy allowyy meyy toyy getyy myyy firstyy
apartmentyy (inyy myyy lateyy 20’s).yy Iyy haveyy alwaysyy beenyy passionateyy aboutyy technology,yy
andyy havingyy ayy jobyy whereyy Iyy canyy utilizeyy myyy experienceyy andyy skillsyy asyy wellyy asyy workyy
myyy wayyy upyy toyy largeryy rolesyy willyy giveyy meyy ayy dailyyy senseyy ofyy satisfaction.
Myyy ultimateyy goalyy isyy toyy eventuallyyy achieveyy ayy Master’syy degreeyy inyy myyy field,yy andyy
feelyy valuableyy inyy theyy workforce.yy Whenyy Iyy initiallyyy startedyy atyy theyy Universityyy ofyy
Phoenix,yy Iyy wasyy overwhelmedyy becauseyy Iyy hadyy beganyy workingyy onyy softwareyy developeryy
coursesyy andyy realizedyy Iyy shouldyy haveyy signedyy upyy foryy differentyy courses.yy Ityy wasyy hardyy
foryy meyy toyy pickyy upyy onyy methodologiesyy suchyy asyy “Scrum”yy andyy “Waterfall”,yy thusyy Iyy
changedyy course.yy Myyy goalyy isyy toyy learnyy code.yy Althoughyy Iyy enjoyyy workingyy directlyyy
withyy hardware,yy especiallyyy recentlyyy sinceyy I’myy goingyy toyy attemptyy toyy installyy ayy customyy
heatsinkyy inyy myyy MacBookyy Airyy (whichyy hasyy ayy fanyy that’syy literallyyy justyy ayy placebo),yy
Iyy wouldyy beyy muchyy moreyy valuableyy toyy employersyy ifyy Iyy knowyy multipleyy codingyy
languagesyy andyy continueyy toyy educateyy myself.yy I’dyy likeyy toyy workyy onyy myyy resumeyy oneyy
dayyy andyy knowyy thatyy Iyy noyy longeryy needyy toyy listyy myyy customeryy serviceyy experienceyy inyy
detail.yy Partyy ofyy myyy studyyy planyy includesyy goingyy throughyy myyy previousyy coursesyy andyy
re-readingyy theyy material,yy whichyy I’myy alreadyyy doing.yy Answeringyy multipleyy choiceyy
questionsyy andyy simulationsyy areyy differentyy fromyy actuallyyy beingyy ableyy toyy pullyy
terminologyyy fromyy memoryyy andyy troubleshooting.yy I’dyy likeyy toyy confirmyy Iyy understandyy
theyy material.yy Thisyy course’syy textbookyy andyy myyy previousyy courseyy isyy filledyy withyy noteyy
aboutyy whatyy wouldyy beyy necessaryyy foryy CompTIA,yy andyy I’veyy takenyy noteyy ofyy eachyy note.yy
I'veyy beenyy creatingyy myyy ownyy flashcards,yy butyy I'veyy finallyyy begunyy toyy useyy thoseyy
availableyy inyy MindTap.yy I'veyy foundyy themyy toyy beyy convenientyy (exceptyy onyy myyy
smartphoneyy dueyy toyy theyy website'syy unnecessarilyyy crampedyy navigation)yy andyy Iyy willyy
recommendyy othersyy useyy ityy asyy well.yy CompTIA’syy websiteyy hasyy examyy preparationyy
resourcesyy thatyy I’myy planningyy toyy utilize,yy suchyy asyy CertMasteryy Learnyy foryy A+.yy Iyy planyy
toyy spareyy noyy expenseyy toyy makeyy sureyy Iyy amyy preparedyy foryy CompTIAyy (thoughyy theyyy
doyy useyy Affirmyy foryy monthlyyy payments).yy Allyy ofyy theyy discountyy codesyy appearyy toyy
expireyy atyy theyy endyy ofyy theyy year.yy Professoryy Salleeyy mentionedyy inyy hisyy postyy thatyy someyy
studentsyy canyy buyyy anyy answeryy keyyy andyy simplyyy studyyy theyy answers.yy Thisyy mayyy makeyy
senseyy toyy meyy moreyy thanyy theyy reader,yy butyy informationyy hasyy layers,yy andyy oneyy needsyy
toyy understandyy eachyy ofyy themyy toyy understandyy theyy informationyy theyyy areyy learning.yy Iyy
wantyy toyy makeyy sureyy Iyy amyy preparedyy foryy jobyy interviews,yy andyy Iyy amyy preparedyy toyy
startyy workingyy onyy Dayyy 1yy inyy myyy firstyy ITyy job.yy Simplyyy memorizingyy theyy answersyy
foryy ayy testyy withoutyy completelyyy understandingyy whatyy theyyy meanyy mayyy seemyy easyyy foryy
someyy people,yy butyy Idyy likeyy toyy understandyy theyy informationyy I’myy receiving.yy It’syy
necessaryyy toyy understandyy theyy why,yy how,yy andyy when.yy Whenyy Iyy amyy ready,yy Iyy simplyyy
needyy toyy followyy theyy “CompTIAyy Studentyy Registrationyy Instructionsyy 2020”,yy includingyy
applyingyy theyy discountyy code,yy toyy scheduleyy myyy test.yy Iyy doyy hopeyy Iyy amyy preparedyy byyy
thatyy dateyy soyy Iyy canyy utilizeyy thoseyy discountyy codes,yy andyy thatyy Iyy willyy beyy ableyy toyy
selectyy ayy locationyy withinyy ayy decentyy timeframe.yy Iyy haveyy toyy keepyy inyy mindyy thatyy there’syy
stillyy ayy pandemicyy soyy theseyy locationsyy mayyy change.
Whenyy thinkingyy ofyy whyyy Iyy wouldyy getyy ayy industryyy certificationyy suchyy asyy theyy Comptiayy
A+yy exam,yy Iyy foundyy theyy majoryy reasonyy wouldyy beyy toyy proveyy myyy worthyy toyy theyy
industryyy byyy testingyy myyy knowledge.yy Inyy orderyy toyy passyy throughyy HRyy filtersyy onyy
applicationsyy youyy willyy needyy skills,yy certification,yy oryy both,yy asyy Iyy amyy knewyy toyy theyy
industryyy Iyy lackyy theyy skillsyy necessaryyy toyy findyy ayy decentyy payingyy techyy jobyy andyy willyy
likelyyy needyy toyy proveyy myyy knowledge,yy learnedyy inyy school,yy andyy applyyy ityy toyy
certificationsyy thatyy Iyy canyy placeyy onyy myyy resumeyy foryy reviewyy andyy stillyy expectyy toyy landyy
ayy decentyy entry-levelyy career.
