Yesterday, I went to take a rather indepth technical exam. It's called Convergence-Plus, sponsored by CompITA, and is 90 questions pulled from a one-thousand-page study guide. It's purpose is to show that the one passing the test knows something about voice-over-IP.

I passed the test (YAY!). I now have a new certificate to frame, and place on my resume. As a friend pointed out, this organization has a reputation to uphold. Getting a CompTIA certificate tells the world that one has a clue about whatever the test is covering.

In order to manage to keep my cool through the testing time, I had plan B in mind - in other words, if I failed the test, I had a backup in mind. Let's say I failed the test - I could go back to my employer to say I tried (part of my bonus hinges on this certification), kiss the testing fee goodbye, and just take it again in October or November. The key was that I could say I tried - that was my plan B.

I did not want to fail the test, but I had my backup plan, and that helped me get through it so that I was not really nervous. Having a Plan B always seems to be a good thing. Preparedness is a wonderful thing. Nevertheless, I passed and can put away that @#$%& thick study guide!

And to demonstrate just how sick of a man I am, I broke out my Network Plus study materials, and started reading up for the next certification. The upside - this one is not required by work.

Dude, that IS really sick! LOL

Congratulations Andy!

You are right, part of preparedness should always be a Plan B.

Peace and love (and get some rest...geezs...)...
