Piece of practical advice for those taking IINS

I just passed IINS on July 3 (With a 955), and I have one piece of advice for anyone taking it. If you've ever had a hard time reading anything or have any hint that you *might* ever have needed reading glasses, go buy a cheap pair at the grocery store and take them with you. I don't want to get into why, because it may violate disclosure, but anyone else who has taken the exam knows exactly what I'm talking about.

I've never had to use reading glasses, but this is the lowest I scored on any Cisco exam, and it's a real possibility that I would have gotten a couple of more questions right had I brought reading glasses.

Still happy with my performance, but it could mean the difference between pass and fail for someone else.

    I agree... I haven't taken this one yet but I have had the, "hard to see details" experience. I'm not so sure about reading glasses though. I have my vision checked once a year so far always perfect but the diagrams are just fuzzy. Is Cisco having to over compress things because they can't push the bandwidth of those giant jpg's? ;)

    Huh? 955 isn't really a low score.

    Great job on the pass, and I agree - I think they wanted to simulate real life stress encountered while diagnosing firewall issues ;)

    I know 955 isn't low, but it's low for me! (I won't tell you how quickly I finished, because that would just be bragging...) icon_wink.gif

    When I finished, I thought I had a perfect score. I think all of the questions I missed were because of those damn tiny low quality images!
