    Default Failed 294 So Close :(

    Ugh. This exam sucked. lol. I failed with a 681, so close. But I kinda blame myself for not sleeping before the test, I decided to stay up after work and tough it out, but my mind kinda gave out. So, I just said screw it, and didn't review like I usually do.

    I have good news though, I get to take it for free next week. So, I will be reporting back with a passing score, I will not let this first failed test bother me.

    I'm glad to see everyone's so enthusiastic about their free retakes

    You probably only missed it by one question. Brush up on your weak areas and you should have it for sure the next time around. Just be sure to get some rest and/or chug your energy drink of choice before the rematch

    lol. Hey, can't beat a free retake. Ahhh! Don't tell me that, one question? I was weak in Manage & Maintain Group Policy, everything else I was good on. See, I wanted to schedule off, but someone already had that day, so I had to suck it up and take it. I think I'm going to review "Royal's Stickies" to get over the hump. I will keep everyone updated.

    This next time I will be sure to have some sleep, and some MountainDew. Thanks Dynamik for the encouragement.

    I usually take 1/2 of the 5hour energy drink 30-45 mins before the exams and it helped me to stay awake.

    I failed last exam 293 with 482 points and that was the only time I did not follow my pre-exam "routine"

    Good luck with your second shot! I find a good nights sleep is a must, but it certainly doesn't hurt to get up early for some crash revision!

    You'll nail it this time

    That's the right attitude, I would be surprised to see You failing next time, being so close to the pass. Anyway, best of luck mate.
