Failed LX0-104

I went for LX0-104 to compete my Linux+ this morning. Oh boy was I not prepared. So many questions regarding X configuration and I had 19 fill in the blanks. Is this common?

What in the world! I used CBT nuggets videos, read the Sybex book and took Transcender Exams. Was scoring 90% on Transcender.

I really feel like I was prepared for a CompTIA exam. Is there anything I can do other than memorize the whole books Glossary? I plan to start with some flash cards. However, I didn't expect to have to write in 1/3 of the test.

Everyone states this one was the easy one! I feel so beat....

    I took the test about 10 days ago. Not sure if I had that many fill-ins, really didn't keep track, but there were a lot.

    I used uCertify and CertMaster as my primary preps. I thought both did a good job of preparing me for the type and difficulty level of questions. If I could only use one, I'd probably go with uCertify, but I was glad to have had both.

    Now that you know what you're dealing with, you'll get it next time! Good luck!

    seems very unusual amount of fill in blanks,on 103 had like one mkdir :] ,mines due in months time,pretty good foundation on networking/protocols part, but very weak on sh scripting and SQL

    Passed today. A lot easier test. No where near what I described above. The extra prep was helpful as well, but over all it was the test.

    I failed LX0-104 as well. I had at least 15 fill in the blanks and they were all vague questions. I used the Sybex and Kaplan, although that seemed outdated. I'm considering UCertify.
