Eight performance based questions! ouch.

Failed today. 700. Thought I was sort of ready. I was getting 90s on a variety of practice tests. Hammered in on subnetting last weekend and then mind went blank tonight. Do yourselves a favor and anticipate a complex subnetting problem with a multitude of hosts and networks. Studying with just one IP address on each practice question doesn't cut it. A lot of WAP questions and antenna configurations. Can't recall one wiring question and I worked a lot on that. OSI, maybe a couple. Tried skipping over the simulations to do at the end, but another one would come up, and then another one and then another one..after the 6th one, I think the proctor heard me muttering. I didn't understand the scenarios half of the time and I've been doing this line of work for 9 years! This was the mother of all. Are all test created equally? I'm bummed and broke. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Sorry to hear that you did not pass icon_sad.gif. I also had a terrible time with those performance based questions and a couple kept exiting the simulations while I was making the configuration changes. Keep studying and you will get it. What study materials did you use? Maybe you just need a different author that explains things differently.

    Don't give up, now that you've identified your weak areas. Go back and sharpen it up, based on what I've read on this board everyone experienced a different exam. The performance part IMO was horrible, it wasn't an issue about not knowing the material. The difficult part was navigating and executing the problem.
