822/900. Not spectacular but passed first time. Thought I should share my experience to be potentially helpful for other students without experience. 0 years experience, 0 certs, finishing BSBA Information Systems concentration in Information Assurance in December (2012). I read DG's book and bought his 'remember this' files and made a cd for the drive to school/work. Took about 2 months of studying being full time student and working two part time jobs 40-50 hours a week total.
Moving on to CCNA. Would like another IA related cert but they all seem expensive from here. Will hopefully have an employer pay for CEH and the training that comes with it next year!

    Glad to hear I wasn't the only one riding around listening to "Remember This." :)

    Congratulations on the pass. With no experience and a first cert, that's a great score. Glad to hear the book and audio helped.

    Good luck with the CCNA.

    It can be difficult to balance work and cert study, nice work!
