CompTIA ITF+ exam

2023-12-03 11:01:00

After my frustrating start with the exam check-in (started at 08:15, finished at 09:00), I did get to do the CompTIA ITF+ (IT Fundamentals) exam. 

Tess? Why do this most entry-level of junior exams? Two reasons:

  1. I'm test-running it for my students at ITVitae, to see if the curriculum and exam are decent.
  2. I've built a webshop selling heavily discounted CompTIA vouchers and wanted to test the payment process, by buying the cheapest voucher.

So what did I think? 

I like the curriculum / objectives. They cover a wide range of topics, which I feel most people in IT should really be familiar with.

The exam itself was decent, though I'm not a huge fan of how a lot of the questions were worded. In some cases the grammar felt a lot more clunky than I'm used to from Linux+, Pentest+, etc. 

I scored much lower than I'd expected! The range is 100 - 900 points, with a pass at 650. I scored 730, which suggests that I misread questions or that CompTIA wanted me to think about a question differently. Plus, I do believe that one or two questions, I got tripped up by the very weird wording. 

Do I think ITF+ is worth it for the most junior students I will be teaching? Yes, the curriculum is worth it. But I do feel that the exam might be a bit frustrating for them. tags: ,
