44 questions total with 2 Sims and 5 drag drops. I was really confident going in to this test. I was nailing every question, even the Sims. I got to question 33 of 44 and New Horizons' triple redundant web servers failed and I had to wait 2 hours for them to fix them. I didn't want to re-schedule, because I felt that if they could fix it quick I wouldn't loose my focus, plus it takes me an hour and a half to get to New Horizons. After two hours of waiting I was beyond angry and ready to choke someone. I got back on the PC and finished the test angry as all get out and failed. That made me even more mad because I know if the failure wouldn't of happened I would of passed and all would have been right with the world. I got a ticket number from New Horizons for the incident and now I have to call Prometric to see if I can get a free test out of this and re-schedule the test again. What really chaps my A$$ is the earliest I can re-take this test is in two weeks. I guess I can look at it as more time to solidify my knowledge on the subject matter. The test itself was pretty easy for me. Like others I found the questions wordy and long for no reason. Microsoft likes to add extranious information in their questions to try to throw you off of the main problem. I used Transcenders and Sybex for this test.

    Wow, that sucks. You probably only missed it by a couple of questions too. Prometric does seem to be decent with handling incidents like this, so hopefully you'll get a free retake. Good luck with all of that!

    Yeah, I just got off the phone with them and they are paying for the re-take on the 12th of September so hopefully things go more smooth next time. I am going to pass this time, I swear it.

    Good deal. You came really close under poor circumstances, so you'll probably do well the next time around. At least you got a free sneak-peak at the exam.

    A fail is a fail, even if a pass is a pass, but better pass with 700 then fail with 662, this is BAD LUCK! Hope next time a BIG PASSED appear on ur screen... :)
