So one of the few exams i've failed on the first attempt, went through the ACG material (definitely not enough), and did 4 out of 6 of Jon Bonso and did pass the CCP a month ago. i think the issue is scenario based questions are a weak spot in general and this exam reminds me A LOT of the comptia CASP style which is brutal in itself as well. i've spent probaly since december going through the material...tough pill to swallow for time spent but admit i probably wasn't focused all 4 months

for those of you that failed the 1st time around what did you add the 2nd go around to help you pass?

    I've read a lot of reports that say ACG is simply not enough to pass the CSAA exam. Loads of test takers have recommended Stefane Maarek? on Udemy as a very good training resource.
    What were your Jon Bonso scores? Why did you only do 4 exams?
    Again go though the Bonso exams (after studying) and review the exam questions.
    Many people also recommend to really search for key words in the exam questions.
    You are say you did the CCP a month ago, that does not sound like sufficient time to study and absorb the material. I know you pointed out you had studied on and off for 4 months but have you focused on CSAA?
    Maybe you just need to also accept the fact that people like you and ME just take a bit longer to get certified.

    Keep your chin up, lay out a reasonable study strategy. Tick off the items in the blueprint, can you teach that to a newbie? You got this! You have already put in the study time, just need to up your game a bit. Before you know it you know it, that celebratory beer will be all that more tasty.
    Good luck

    Thanks, I originally started studying for csaa back in nov but pivoted back in Jan to study for CCP as I thought it would better serve me to get the pillars down /services hoping it would help with CSAA...nope my mistake in that . But I’m taking a 2 week back to mentally check out on studying before hitting the books. And will purchase the other use my course 

    thanks for the encouraging words
