The exam must have been loaded with trick questions because I really felt like I did well. I felt it was not that difficult when I was taking it - then I got my score. I can't believe it. Very Very depressing.......don't know what to do right now.

    Sorry to hear that. What did you use to prepare for the exam? What areas on your score report were lacking?

    Good luck on your next attempt!

    What questions did you have problems with?

    What did you use to study?

    Good luck next time.

    Used Nuggets, Syngress, and MS-Press.

    I did bad on 1 section acording to the printout - the Network Infrastructure section - looks like I got around 40% right. Maybe there is there a min. you need correct on each section, or you fail. I don't freakin know cause on the other sections it seems I did well. One was 100%, two were around 75% and one was around 60%.

    After thinking about it for a bit, the test just did not seem that hard while I was taking it. Oh well....

    I am taking it again this Friday. I leave the next day for a week's vacation. I need to pass it this time, as second failure is going to ruin my vacation.

    Any suggestions on prep for taking this test the second time?

    You score really isnt that bad mate, your not far off passing so I would take condifence in that. Id cram a bit on the area you scored low on while just using flash cards to scan over the other stuff. You have a very good chance of passing this friday and even if you didnt dont let it wreak your holiday. Good luck mate.
