Hello Everyone! I just wanted to share my experience with and taking the CompTIA IT Fundamentals Exam. I passed the exam in September of 2017 and it was my first experience with CompTia. I used mostly the Mike Meyers All-in-One Textbook for my studies. I would carefully read a chapter and when it came time for the quiz at the end of a chapter, I would take it, and not look at the answers or write in the book. Instead, I would write my answer on a sheet of paper and have a family member "grade" it while showing them where the answer key was, being careful not to see it. I was unsatisfied if I got below an 80%. Most quizzes were 10 questions. I would study the chapter more if that was the case.
When I came to the end of all the chapters in the book, the textbook also came with test-prep software. I did partake in the practice exams. I set the mode for no assistance, and test condition settings. I spent a couple weeks practicing getting used to exam format and when I really, truly felt confident, I booked an appointment at my local testing center. I was a bit nervous when I got to the testing center but the nice proctors there really eased my mind. They explained in detail how the exam will be administered. They held my cell phone/watch and everything on my pockets. They even checked my glasses for anti-cheating.
To anyone going to take this exam, I know it can be a bit stressful. I am still new to the world of IT, and back then in 2017 I didn't know about ITPro.Tv. My advice is study and make sure you understand the material and do not get frustrated if you do not get a topic the first time you read it. I didn't.
Right now I am starting my CompTia A+ Journey and it felt good to be able to share my experience with the IT Fundamentals Exam. I wish everyone the best of luck, and take care!
