PASSED, but still a little unhappy and confused?

O.K, I know this may sound stupid, and ecspecially to some people who have failed the exam. But when i found out that I only got a 700 I was a little dissapointed.

I studied for about 2 weeks, and sat a course, i knew the stuff backwards and as I was sitting the exam i was thinking that i would be close to getting all the questions right. When I hit complete and saw the 700, I was a little confused.

Did anyone else feel like this?

It upsets you to, because you really want to know what you got wrong, and all you get is a rough idea of what section you were wrong. Oh well!!

From my experience, which was last friday-
-They were very heavy on 2000. About 50% of my questions was referring to 2000 PRO.
-Make sure you study the system requirements, i went roughly over it, but didn't really take it all in, and got two questions on it.

    Congrats on the pass. Comptia is known for having questions that you answer with the "most logical" answer, but they want the "Comptia answer". Either way, a pass is pass.

    I used the computerprep study books, 2 volumes. I also sat a five day course. As funny as it sounds i also used a A+ for dummies guide that i found on the internet. Its a small guide that covers both hardware and software, but it highlights key points that you may run into on the exam, and sure enough i did.

    I remember when i sat my hardware, i used the guide and they made a note of the class of fire extinguisher you should use to put out a computer fire.

    Sure enough im sitting my exam, and what question should appear. I hadn't seen a refernce to this in any my other study books.

    Its funny how the little things you dont think seem important, end up being exactly what they want you to know.

    Usually a pass will indicate the candiate has compentancy in the exam area, not a master of it. And as Ricka182 mentioned, the answer needs to reflect "CompTIA's" most logical answer not necessarily what you do in the field. And sometmes in the field 2-3 things happen simultaneously so it's challenging to quantify which goes 'first'.

    'i' before 'e' except after 'c'.... weird?
