    Good Luck.

    Do not fear this exam logic and knowledge will see you through.

    You can do it! Good luck.

    My last minute advice would be to slowly read and comprehend the questions, they are not the most well written questions...

    After the first 10 questions, I was sure I was going to fail. I usually mark for review the ones that I'm not sure on and I ended up marking 6-7 of the first 11 or 12. By the end, I had marked over 30 icon_confused.gif

    Reviewed all questions and ended up changing 2-3 answers and pretty much accepted that I didn't pass. You can imagine my icon_eek.gif face when the score came back... 860/900. icon_moneyeyes.gif

    Congrats. I felt the same way on the Linux+ test and just stopped marking them because it made me depressed, but I passed as well.

    Congrats!

    How did you find the questions? Many people complain about the quality of the writing. CompTIA lets Subject Matter Experts write the questions as opposed to professional exam developers. I don't know that I would trust the average IT guy to write anything. Many of the brightest tech guys I know can't spell or write very well at all.

    Thanks everyone.

    I used Skillsoft CBT's (through my employer), the Syngress book and ExamCram2.

    There were some questions that were poorly written, but I shouldn't say exactly what was bad about it due to the NDA.

    Everyone seems to really like that Syngress book. I think I'm going to pick that one up for me.

    Congrats on the pass! I felt the same way when I took mine. I ended up marking down quite a few as well. Good luck on your MCSE, I take the 70-270 tomorrow afternoon. I am used to the Comptia format, so this is uncharted territory on the MS question layout. icon_wink.gif

    Congratulations on passing!
  • Congrats man.

    Tis strange, I really felt I was gonna fail this exam while doing it as well but ended up getting pretty much the same score as yourself.
