Failed ICND2 Second Attempt by 11 Pts. What Now ?
After failing my first attempt at ICND2 by 100 points back in June, I took it again today and failed by 11 points. Even getting this score was incredibly difficult considering I work overnight at a NOC, have family commitments during the day and have little to no time to study. I tried to get by both times by just studying the OCG / Lammle book and doing the Boson ExSim. I did very little labbing. I'm really discouraged because I really thought I had it this time.
Here's my score breakdown:
LAN Switching Technologies - 50%
Routing Technologies - 41%
WAN Technologies - 50%
Infrastructure Services - 63%
Infrastructure Maintenance - 56%
TOTAL: 800 / 811 (needed to pass!)
So what do you guys think? I start classes for my Master's degree next Wednesday, so even less time for studying for ICND2 after Wednesday. Do I lab it up for a week and take the exam next week? Take more time to try to study and pass it ?? Something else???
I'm really frustrated with ICND2. I'm looking for some good advice here. I will then make a plan and follow through.
