Passed with a 820.

Started freaking out about half way through but then things just came together.

For everyone out there hearing "consistenly score in the 90s and you'll be fine", based on my experience thats a half truth.

Scoring in the 90s will help, but im sure you can pass if you score in the 80s and even 70s in some practice tests. I got a 73.6% in 72 preplogic demo that came with my book. Also took the tests at this site and mcmcse.com and got 90s in those..

I studied WAAAYYY too much for it though (3 months) . study for two weeks (hard studying though) and you'll be peachy. Props to everyone at these forums for helping me out.

This will prolly be the first AND LAST certification I get. I stressed out way to much for this thing. Also, this whole process has showed me that certifications arn't insanely important. True, they look good on a resume but experience is of the utmost importance. If i were to go for another certification, it would be a CISCO one and i'll be 35 years old as opposed to 20.

Thats just my two cents.

Keep it O.G

    Well done! However, I'd like to say by the time you're 35 you're looking at paying a mortgage, school fees for your kids, planning for retirement, paying off the car etc. And trust me, there will be folks with more experience AND certifications.

    If you're gonna take part in the rat race, at least make a good run!

    Hope you study further and become a real network GURU.
