Test Scheduled

I called Prometric today and got my A+ Core Hardware test scheduled for Tuesday, June 13th. I've got a little more studying to do, mostly on wireless networks, but I think I'm pretty well set. Now, I've just got to pass the test. Then after that I'll study for the OS (operating systems) test and probably take that sometime the end of July or mid-August. Wish me luck in passing!

I started watching the Mike Meyer's videos at work. ZZzzzzzzzz!!! He's entertaining but he's telling me stuff I already know. Maybe that's a good thing! :)

Well, it is a good thing if you know this stuff, means you have that much less to study and learn. The early videos are pretty basic, when you get into the more complicated stuff, then it gets more interesting. Also make sure you take the practice tests I gave you. That will really let you know what you know. ;)

Good Luck!!! You'll pass with flying colors! ... (What does that expression mean anyways? I never had any "flying colors" keeping me company when I passed anything! Hmmm...) Anyways, best of luck with the remainder of your studying & with the test next month!

Thanks, Ruth. And, just for you, I found this explanation:

FLYING COLORS, WITH - " 'We came off with flying colours.' George Farquar, 'The Beaux's Stratagem (1706). Victorious; extremely successful. The term comes from the practice of a victorious fleet sailing into port with flags flying from all the mastheads. By 1700 or so it was being used figuratively, signifying any kind of triumph." From "Fighting Words: From War, Rebellion, and other Combative Capers" by Christine Ammer (NTC Publishing Group, Chicago, Ill., 1989, 1999).

Ok funny....or sad.... is it that I was just about to start a search on what that meant when I realized that mom already did one? Like mother like daughter. :)

Wow...only a group like us would be interested in the meaning behind such a phrase - we're all a bunch of cookoo's huh?

Best of luck on the test...let us know how you do!
