Certifications are a part of life in IT. On today’s Heavy Networking we explore preparation strategies with guest Mary Fasang, who you might know as the Network Green Girl or the Running Green Girl on the socials. Mary and I met at a tech event a while back, and I found out she’s a fellow certification enthusiast. Her certifications run the gamut from CompTIA to MCSE to the CCNP, as well as the PMP and ITIL certs. She’s also got an MBA.
We discuss Mary’s certification study strategy. How should you prepare for a cert in 2023 when there’s so much content, so many training options, as well as home labbing available? How do you handle failure? Which certs have been the hardest? Should you buy the book? Take courses? What other study materials have proved helpful?
Mary has her opinions, so let’s get into it!
