I’m taking the Network + exam in 3 weeks.
I’m using a udemy course but I don’t feel confident yet. Anyone know of some tools to use to help pass? I’ve looked at different boot camps and crash courses but I’m overwhelmed and want to ensure I’m studying the correct Materials

Do you have any relevant experience with networks or network engineering?

Having done network engineering for 20+ years, I took the test without any prep, and used what I already knew from experience to pass it. From registering for the test to completion, only 72 hours passed.

That said, if you’re a bookworm, you may nail the theory part, but it all depends really on what you already know…

Highly recommend Professor Messer videos! All the videos are free and he charges a small fee if you want a copy of notes. The videos are relatively short in length and easy to understand.

Monday Morning rumination: unsolicited advise is criticism.

Much to reflect on with this topic. Last week I was told in a 1:1 with a new contact that I was “too direct”. After some time chewing on the conversation I was struggling to place the emotions I was feeling. Turns out I was feeling guilty and shame for being me, for taking up space. Lesson of the week: unsolicited advice is a criticism of you, a micro aggression of who you are, and being “too much”. What would you do??

Hey you, weary teacher, I see you.
I hear you sigh,
eyes closed,
Head in your hands...

I know the things you think,
the doubts,
the frustrated pain...

I know you are trying.
I know you work hard.
Sometimes it seems like you’re the only one
in the whole damn school who cares...

I know.
I see.
I hear.
I care.

You are the difference.
You are power.
Through you flows the future.
You author the stories of the world.

I care about the tale you are creating.
Please keep writing. Please.
