    Default Failed 9/18

    This has to be one of the hardest exams I've ever sat for. All of the studying I did amounted to nothing.

    In my opinion, the questions are too wordy. Very scenario based, but just long and you have to read a few times to get an understanding of what they're really referring to.

    How long did you study for? Which books of reference did you use? I am going to take this exam probably next year.

    Indeed. This one busts you in the gut.

    Negatives:

    You're out some cash for a bit.
    Ego is probably a little beat up.

    Positives:

    You know what to expect on your next attempt.
    The exam report tells you what you need to work on.
    It takes guts to walk in here and admit to failing it.



    Rescheduled this dude twice I think. Every time thinking I just wasn't ready. You will get it next time bruh.

    Wow this exam is dropping people like flies. You'll get it next time! Strange because a colleague of mine just took it the other day and he said it was just one-liner questions. He failed it too and he works in Cyber Security.

    I failed 3 times ( I had to take the test every two weeks ) Just take a few weeks off and brush up on what you need to.

    You will get it ..!!

    Well, I had a spare voucher($50), which is why I sat for the exam. I don't particularly need it, but I just had to use it by 9/18. The book I used for study was the Pearson CASP study guide and studied for 5 months.

    the exam is a gut punch, if your looking for discounted Exam vouchers head over to cybrary.it....nobody should be being full price for this exam. but to give some more advice you should be reading the pearson and sybex book both books 3 times and be taking notes by writing...its long and painful way of doing it but it will build a better picture in your mind when your trying to remember.
