    Well I'm pissed beyond all belief I got an 801 and needed 804 (BULLS*IT) I am pissed beyond all belief. I'm going to fight Cisco on this issue. I got so pissed I almost punched the god damn computer. My day just got ruined.

    Sorry to hear that bud. I feel your frustration, I failed my NA first time by a fraction. Take a few days off, get back to the books and smash it 2nd time.

    All the best.

    memorize the subnet chart and write it down during the exam intro
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 0 ■■□□□□□□□□
    The subnetting was fine. It came down to a question that was so poorly worded it could have been interpreted in a few different ways. I wish I could post it to just point out how dumb it was worded but it would break my NDA. F*CK YOU Cisco. allout.gifallout.gifallout.gifallout.gifallout.gifallout.gifallout.gifallout.gifallout.gifallout.gifallout.gifallout.gifallout.gifallout.gifallout.gifallout.gifallout.gifHaha just venting. Sorry this is just the first time I have had something like this happen. I passed my Boson and Transcender practice tests. All I can say is Boson is byfar the most accurate in regards to test accuracy to the actual exam.

    Look on the bright side, I guarantee you pass the next time : )

    Think of the 2:00 a.m. test—if you were awakened in the
    middle of the night because of a network problem and had to figure out the
    traffic flows in your network while you were half asleep, could you do it?

    Those Transcender practice tests suck to be perfectly honest (for both ICND1 and 2). They have so much legacy equipment and irrelevant questions that it's a joke.

    I got nothing for you man...hope you nail it the next attempt.

    Sorry man that sucks! At least you now know what to expect from the exam and you were just points off from passing.

    I would try to retake it relatively soon depending on what else you have going on. Cram a little bit on your weak points but since you were so close probably just lab to stay fresh.

    I agree. Maybe by some chance Cisco maybe messed up on the scoring. I mostly used Paul Browning CCNA in 60 days book, Pluralsight videos, Boson/Transcender practice exams, lab equipment, and Chris Bryant videos and some simulator software utilities. I would recommend passing up Transcender and buy Boson practice exams all the way. Boson actually has simulation based questions similar to what Cisco has on their exams. Has anyone else had similar issue with this where they were only a mere 3 or less points away? The main thing which I believe made the difference in me passing or not was one stupid answer choice that was worded like S$#T. Anyways what's done is done. Got another voucher and my Christmas break off of college to hit it up again. Taking a break from this and hitting up my CompTIA Healthcare IT technician to give myself a confidence boost after such a chilling defeat. Thanks everyone!

    There is the right answer, the wrong answer and the Cisco answer. I have found that piece of advice to be helpful.

    Like others said, study up on your weak areas, and hit a home run next time.
