So I passed switch this morning (yay) but I was surprised to see a score of 803. When I got the printout, my section scores were 100, 100, 92, 72, and a 0! How the heck do you get a zero?! I'm sure I did well on all the sims and I didn't skip any questions. Do you think its possible for cisco or pearson vue to look that up and see why I got a zero?

Anyway, I actually like that material alot so I'm going to re-read the bcmsn book again and do more labs.

    You probably had a single (or very few) questions in a section and you got it wrong. I doubt they will tell you anything further than that but I guess it wouldn't hurt to try.

    On a similar note this is why I like the Juniper score report. It shows you the amount of questions per section and how many you got correct.

    Oh and congrats!

    P.S. I also got 0% in wireless section of the CCNA exam, because there was only one (and very weird) question about wireless technologies on the exam.

    I've already started studying for Route. Do you guys consider it more difficult than switch?

    I haven't taken it yet, but the studies are pretty nice for it I think. I was under the impression that SWITCH has some concepts that come from ROUTE, so that will be easier for you.

    Route has a lot more details than switch does. It is quite a bit more difficult because of that reason alone. The Switch test has less details but is a more tricky exam, hopefully that helps :)

    I agree with the others' ideas on this; it probably was a small section consisting of a very few questions and you unfortunately
    missed them icon_sad.gif

    But don't worry be happy! You have switch done! Congrats and good luck with the others!
