Failed today

Got 799, needed 804.

The frustrating part was one of the "testlet" style questions that had 4 parts. I answered the first question, then hit NEXT, and it skipped the next 3 parts of that test let. I new it as soon as I hit NEXT that I probably cost myself the pass. Granted, I should have STILL known enough to pass, but I killed myself by hitting NEXT too soon.

I noticed ALL of the other testlets prompted you to click YES to confirm you are ready to close the question, but this one did not.

Plus you can't go back to previous questions, plus there is no check for unanswered questions at the end of the exam.

I'll hit it harder next time!

    Ouch! Tough way to fail. Sounds like a bug of sorts but that won't be much consolation. Re-do any practice exams you used, but train yourself to think of "next" as "next question" instead of "next part" of this question and use the other controls to navigate with.

    Sorry to hear you didn't pass. Hmm, did you tell your proctor about the glitch?

    I didn't report it, because I knew it was my own fault. I have taken ~20 cert exams in my career, but still should have known better. I got that testlet EARLY in test, so I knew for the rest of the test that I hurt my score. By the time I got my 799, I was basically over it and ready to try again.

    I am so used to the MS tests, where the test will pop up a review screen at the end and allow to you to review questions that were unanswered. But I guess I answered part 1 of the 4 parts of that testlet, so even still it may have counted as an attempt.

    You were so close. Good luck on the next attempt.
