Passed on the second try... 900/900

I spent a few more weeks studying syngress, sybex, exam cram and paid more details to non-techical details. I personally like Syngress the best. Sybex had some "mistakes". The exam isn't overly technical and had a lot of "common sense" questions that I obviously complicated on my last try. I guess managing a PIX515E and Snort IDS along with 2 SANS courses probably helped me along the way. As I noted before, the questions are very ambiguous so attention to details is important. Next stop is CISSP. Thanks to everyone who contributed to postings.

    Good going, it's not easy to get a perfect score. I found it to be the easiest compTIA exam...but the questions can be really tricking, with there being more than one acceptable answer.

    Here's to future success

    Congrats, I passed on my second time. Hard thing for me is taking test and always second guessing myself. I took a lot more practice tests and purchased some from Exam Cram 2 guys and did them for hours a day for a week and memorizing better the encryption groups, etc.... finally was able to pass it without second guessing myself so many times.

    Thanks, as I said, work hard. Cover as many books and notes and this exam is passable. I think people underestimate how vague the questions can be. I spent way too much time studying crytography in detail but neglect stuff like policies. But it helps to have an active forums like techexams.net and good people who contribute to it.
