I just came back from the testing center to take the MTA 98-366 exam for enrollment at WGU and I came in thinking I was ready but to my surprise I was near the cut off at 63 :(. I’m new to IT so all this information is new to me. My exam results so far have been Exam 1 - 46 Exam 2 - 56 Exam 3- 65 Exam 4 - 63 Now I only have one more try next week before I have to wait a whole year to take it again. I’ve been studying ucertify videos , quizlet, certiport practice tests and used the YouTube videos from Microsoft. This has been so discouraging and I’ve been looking online everywhere for where I can find more materials to study but I can’t find much :( it seems like there’s no definitive study guide that will get oh from 0-100% knowledge for this exam. Can someone give me tips or something I could do to help me pass this exam ?

l never really had a reddit until one day my brother told me to make one because there are many funny stories that would keep you entertained. l downloaded the app on my phone and started wandering in the world of reddit. l stumbled upon this sub and it changed my life. l started to read posts on how to pursue IT correctly and because of that l feel confident in my career path. Shout out to everyone who posts in this sub just to help all the noobies out there that aren’t familiar with this field. You are great individuals and hope your lives are filled with success!

Working on your back is the biggest factor with posture. Do your pull ups and never skip back day

lm not sure what field in IT to pursue really is networking a field that can make really good money? I’ve been doing some studying for CCNA and the information seems interesting but I really hope the job market is good.

I’m a bit nervous about this l don’t know much IT as l just got into the field very recently. What will l be doing exactly as a service desk analyst? Any tips and guidance on this role would be greatly appreciated 🙏🏽

lm Muslim and quite frankly l don’t care if someone eats infront of me lve been doing this fast thing for many years for lt to bother me. Also in my work experience lve never expected someone to not eat infront of me because I’m fasting but if they chose to do that l had a lot of respect for them because it’s a kind gesture.

Make a spreadsheet of the courses in each one and rate how well you think you already know that subject, and choose the one you already know the most of. Thats the main way to get through things faster, is if you already have working experience in the subject area.

But yeah, ppl i've seen go fast do more than 15 hours, often the study 2-3 hours in the day (including morning or late night, and sometimes during work) plus full days on the weekends

This isn’t a hippie post lm just saying the presentation and taste of rare is complete garbage

if you’re gonna take the CCNA+ you shouldn’t do N+ bc CCNA has all of N+ certs information and more. Your idea is good but however you need to realize that CCNA will take a couple months not just 30 days .

l was just talking to my fiancé about this yesterday. We both agreed that no way in hell are we going to have a kid unless we have a big house good card and a solid saving already then we will think about having a child. There’s no point in having a child while you just started off and you’re making just 50/60k a year. It’s going to be a struggle for you and your child and lts just silly.

Like the title says, what would l need to start a system admin job. Would a CCNA follow the roadmap for a system admin?

CCNA is good for pretty much anyone. Beyond that, it all depends on the job or what kind of admin. If you want to do Microsoft stuff, get MCSA. If you want to be a Linux admin, get Red Hat certs. "System Admin" can mean a lot of things but usually means a wide scope of knowledge.

l was told l could get a 60k job lf l learn more about data bases which one would that be ?

lm 23 year old that substitutes at schools every week and l learned a lot about high schoolers. All this work they do in class is complete bs and has no greater significance for them. Busy work ls being laid out for them for 4 years straight. They should be taught real life things like how to do taxes or how to build a business etc. l live in a very rich county so there’s no excuse of “oh lts because of low income “. No, high school ls bullshit and needs to be reworked.

>useful skills
>like how to build a business
Yes, because most people will build businesses and become business owners. There’s totally a place in the market for all of them. What a useful skill! Totally something that everyone will need, and not just a relatively small minority.

That was only an example, there could many skills the student could choose from the point ls not to waste time learning things that won’t help post high school.

That’s good that you got your associates but to be frank experience with Walmart even as a supervisor l don’t see that as very helpful for an lT career path. lt companies are looking for people with experience specifically in IT. Now, with your associates and customer service experience that could probably help you land a help desk job. Help desk jobs are the first step into the IT career world. If you’re having trouble getting a position with your skills as a help desk try studying for the A+ certification which will highly increase your chances of getting a help desk job.

The work experience is to more show that ive actually done something more than just sit on my ass and go to school the last 5 years. Not to mention shows im capable of showing up to work enough not to get fired and such.

l understand where you’re coming from but in the end , all companies will look at is how much IT experience you have, that’s lt.

What exactly should l buy to make sure l pass the CCNA exam. Any practice exams/videos/toils that will get me from 0 knowledge to 100%

I’m a unemployed college student and lve been applying to a lot of IT help desk jobs as l need this for my experience in lT like everybody else. l haven’t gotten any good luck and lts been bringing me down because l really need to gather experience l feel so lazy and l really want to better myself. l wake up today in the morning and l get a text from this number saying they saw my application on indeed.com and asked me if lm still interested in the “admin assistant” job that l applied for, l said yes and the guy who l was texting said okay message me on google hangout and we will start the interview . The interview was text we didn’t video chat, only asking general questions like what are You weakness and strengths. lt looked totally real and l got super excited. The pay he said was 25$ an hour for the help desk job and that lt was a work st home type of job. after the interview he said hed offer me the job. He said he needs my personal information to send me a check so l can buy the correct office supplies. l said okay and gave him my home address and phone number and then proceeded to tell me that he will call me tomorrow regarding the check. l was excited and told my parents and my fiancé and they got really happy. l felt proud l landed a 50k job help desk. l kept thinking about the job and did some research about the company but l couldn’t find reviews that said they did a google hangout interview so then l searched up google hangout job scams and boom. Many people were getting offers like this one with the same exact questions and it turned out the job posting is a scam. Crushed my spirits and now lm back to applying to other jobs.

TL:DR applied to a job they contacted me saying they’ll offer me 50k for help desk and l accepted turned out lt was a scam to get personal information out of me.

Here’s the thing, people nowadays are less antisocial and friendly with each other(stranger wise). Because of that, l never approach anyone 100% about their form. But for me if someone saw me doing something right l welcome the constructive criticism. lt really depends on the person it’s say people can’t take normal criticism for their benefit but what can you do
