  4. just passed 101 today... exam is very tricky and touch.. dont take this exam easy.. not a networking exam.. all about apps

  5. Took the exam just and passed. I looked he study quide only and it seemed to be very basic and easy,but suprise suprise, in the real exam there was quite alot things that were not in study quide at all so I think I passed with my 18years experience...

  6. Anyone has dumps for 101 exam?

    1. Hi Raj,
      Mostly you wont need dump for 101 exam since it is quite basic stuff. I do not think you will find dump here since I did not used it. You might search online to find in other websites. Good luck!
