Got an 821 - better than I thought I did when I hit submit actually.

Some questions really easy, some were worded to try to "trick" you. As a Comptia SME who has helped design questions for the A+ exam I think this is despicable. It almost makes the test more reading comprehension than a technical exam.

I did not think the Stammer & Wilson practice questions and practice exam from the book did a good job of prepping you for this exam at all. Some of the questions I had to lean on my CCNA knowledge to answer, which I guess is okay but is not covered in the book. The book does do a decent job of prepping you for the memorization stuff and giving you a broad overview of topics. Do not rely on just the book though, have some professional curiosity and learn the topics in there a little better.

There were about 7 or 8 questions that had 2 correct answers, again, despicable. We shouldn't be trying to trick people here!

    Congrats! Now take a VM-Ware Associate certification (such as Data Center or something along those lines). You'll be surprised how much Cloud+ helped me pass that within a month.
