No one at work really cares, LOL, so I thought I would share it somewhere where people understood what kind of accomplishment it is.

Re: Good News !!!

If you don't mind me asking. What material did you use for study purposes?

I don't mind at all. I used the latest CWNA study guide by Sybex and did a lot of reading. Fortunately, we had training money in the budget so I was able to take the CWNA course from Global Knowledge (I talk about it here: http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/CWNA-Study-Group/CWNA-Boot-Camp/gpm-p/253427) and that helped tremendously as my instructor was very good.

 

A couple of things I did that helped me out as well:

- when ever I saw or had to learn a new acronym, I would say it out fully in my head every time. As an example, every time I saw VHT, I would read it as Very High Throughput.

- I tried to compare or associate the various concepts that were not as familiar to me with my current wireless environment at work. That really helped as it gave me real world identifiers that I see everyday.

- I got there early and was reading my notes in the car all the way up until it was time to go in and take the exam (so maybe a little neurotic LOL)

 

Hope it helps!

Well as I work full time, go to school online at ECU and am also a Dad of twin four year olds, I don't have a lot of extra time. But as I do get some here and there I am looking at a few different ones. The CWSP, from CWNP and another Aruba cert, either the ACCA, or if I am feeling froggy, the ACCP. With ClearPass I am full on into it on the secure, role based production network side, but I have yet to touch the Guest Access side. So we shall see :-)

Re: Good News !!!

Scott,

I am scheduled to take CWNA next week but likely to postpone again:) Did you use any test questions? Any testing materials?
