Finally I passes this ugly test icon_lol.gif

Score :659 or 73%

its been ultra hard but I can say its good to finally pass this test,

Here a sample, of some of what I have been through:

1st time: Failed, had no idea that there is as limit to ISDN connections
:) just remember 18 000 feet

2nd time:close but no cigar 527 failed by one question I changed in the end

3rd time: you will not belive what happened next icon_eek.gif
Power fail or as in South Africa we call it : LOAD SHEDDING just as I clicked Begin test icon_eek.gif

What are the chances of that happening?
much more than winning the lotto probebly!

4th time :freebie from last time Wrote, got 659 Bliss icon_lol.gif

To anybody who is about to write I can advise you such:

Dont change your answers no matter how hard it is (easier said than done). icon_wink.gif

Have more than one textbook to learn from (I used Exam Cram 2 ISBN no:078973254icon_cool.gif plus any other official textbooks from the university/college you are doing

Get preplogic 15 minute guide and technotes and print the 15 minute one to refer to just before the exam.

one last thing drink a can of energy drink just before you write :D

and most importantly: DONT GIVE UP EVER !!!!!!!!!

I know I should have given up after the second time but I dident and With my own inisiative I passed and passed well!

So remember, Whatever you do, Dont give up, no matter how expensive the test is in your country.

just try again,
and you will pass without a doubt. icon_cool.gif

    I agree, never give up. Youve spent the time and energy to pursue the certification so you are better off seeing it out.

    There were a number of those "I have absoluetly no idea, A, no B, crap D!" questions when i sat it.

    Congrats! and excellent show of force and resilience!!!

    I will be taking the exam here in NorCal next Wednesday. Hopefully the questions will not be too twisted.

    Some questions:

    a) Did you encounter any long or convoluted scenarios, that took a lot of your time ?
    b) Did the exam questions go in a progressive manner, according to the exam outline ?
    c) What areas do you feel were emphasized the most ?
    d) What kind of scenarios seemed the most difficult ?


    e) What exams do you plan on doing next ?
    (if I pass Network+, I will take the CCENT exam 640-822, and after that SSCP (System Security Certified Practitioner), then Ethical Hacker, and Linux+ with A+ somewhere in between ... hope to finish all these by same time next year ...)
    Studying CCENT/ICND1 (640-822)
    Future tests:
    in 2008: CCENT, SSCP, Linux+, A+,
    in 2009: CCNA/ICND2 (640-816), C|EH, CWNA, CWSP,
    in 2010: CCNP, CCSP.
