I took it and failed it by 2 points. I felt really stupid for failing a test that requires at 5X% to pass. Now I have to see if I can actually retake the exam because of comptia's not so clear retake policy for my situation.
Booya!!

    Why did you take the 2003 instead of the 2009? The 2003 has a lower cut off but is harder then the 2009.

    You'll pass next time with out a problem.

    Well, unless you are going to WGU, you'll probably take the 2003 again. I believe on the second attempt, you can take the exam immediately.

    Still, I would suggest you take the 2009 exam. More questions, but very doable.

    In about 16 days, the 2003 exam becomes no more. I believe the exam retires end of this month. Then folks have to take the 2009 (and they'll be better off, IMHO.)

    It's not easy

    It was by far and away the hardest Comptia exam I have ever taken.

    It took me two times.

    Hey thanks for the input.
    I've been studying for the 03 version for a while now. I'm having problems with the comptia policy for retaking the exam so I'll have to check it out. The questions were messed up!!! I got lost on a few of them and I ended up changing a few answers on atleast four questions.

    Assuming the money isn't an issue, you can take the exam (2003) tomorrow if you want. You got until the end of the month though; see below:
