    Hang in there, and try again. Study your weak domains. You'll get it the next time I'm sure.

    Sorry that you did not pass, I am sure that is a terrible feeling after all your hard work, just remember, you can retake and pass it.

    It is an *awful* feeling- and not easy to swallow since I am paying for the exams myself.

    This is the question. Here are my guesses (which, of course I will address/study for the next attempt).

    1. Simulations. There were more than a few- I can only guess that since neither of the 2 books I used to study with (nor the Messer Vids) had simulations, that I may not have scored well enough on them. I missed questions in 19 of the 33 domains - about 50% of domain 1,2,3,4,5,6.
    A 600 score of 900.

    2. I did not have the Prowse or Gibson Books/study material that many here have reported to be valuable/content equivalent to the exam.
    This one is my best guess as I have different study materials... so different results. The sources/authors I used on previous exams did not get me where I needed to be on this particular exam.

    So now I must..

    1. Pay for more study materials

    2. Pay for another exam

    3. Spend a lot more time (of note: I spent more time on this exam then any of the previous 3 exams that I passed on the first go)

    gosh - that's a lot of grumbling from me- I am a bit miffed it seems, sorry to go on about it (its still fresh).

    Thank you all for the well wishing and advice- it has a very positive impact and I really appreciate it.

    Cool. I feel it's always better to get a few different books; just in case, one writing style works better for you. Do you have any idea about what mistakes you made on the performance-based/simulation questions? Try to visualize and/or replicate it with VMs or lab sims. You're probably gonna get something similar next time - maybe some of the same questions. I really can't say because I passed SYO-301.
