I have a BS in Information Systems Security but I am currently a Telecommunication Technician. I wanted to take this exam because I am trying to move over in to the IT field. So I began studying last June starting the the Gibson book, which is really good and in depth. I finally paid for the exam and the retake just in case you know. So i took the exam on Nov. 26 and I failed with a score of 560.
So I began looking around for other sites that I can add to my studying and test taking, luckily I found this site which has helped me immensely. So I began studying on the SY0-401 exam on this site and even the older exam just in case, then I started looking at the videos online at work. So I finally felt like I was ready for and scheduled the exam for two weeks away from my current date due to not wanting to take it around the holidays.

I was studying all last night and taking test after test until about 9pm. When I work up this morning I felt like I was ready to go. I went in there this morning right when they opened the doors literally. I took the test and came away with a score of 810 out of 900. I am so ecstatic right now, since this is the start of what certs I want to get and broaden what knowledge I already have.

Thank you guys for all the info and encouragement on this forum.

    I thought he was referring to another site, I guess I read it kind of wrong, haha. I took Sec+ recently also and I now have a tendency to read into things too much...
