    Default CASP PASSED - 10/11/2016 - First attempt

    I had seven "simulations" (five were drag-and-drop, only two were legitimate simulations), and then seventy-three multiple-choice. I got to number fifteen out of eighty, and was certain I'd be failing. By number thirty, I regretted wasting four hundred dollars, and thinking what else I should have spent that money on. Then after the test, I was trudging through the demographics survey, I got to the results page, and it said "PASSED." I had to read the entire thing to make sure it didn't say Failed out of Passed or something, but it was a pass. Shocked and ecstatic don't even begin to describe how I feel.

    I started studying for it two months ago, with the plan of taking it at the end of November/early December. But then I got a new job I'm starting next week, and knew my studying would lose its priority to learning my new job. So I doubled up on my study efforts the last couple weeks, and jumped on the test early. I read one of the free books on Safari, and watched the Cybrary.It lecture series. I also took the CEH back in May as part of the WGU MS program, and the knowledge in attacks and penetration testing/vulnerability analysis I got from studying for that definitely helped out as well.

    Overall, I'd say the test is incredibly hard, and there was definitely some luck on my side in a few of the guesses I took on questions. But the number one thing that I'd say helped me get the pass: Listening to Katy Perry's "Roar" on repeat on my way to the testing center. Without that, I would've failed. Guaranteed.

    Congrats! I like Katy Perry, but Queen's "It's a Kind of Magic" is my pre-test anthem.

    Nice choice. I always listen to something on my way there, but it changes every time. I always make sure it'll get pumped, whether it be some danceable pop, some gangsta rap, or some brutal death metal. Just whatever I'm feeling at the time, and it's worked out well so far

    Thanks everyone!

    Haha I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt that way!

    I really wish they would give a score for the test, I'm really curious as to whether I scraped by with one question to spare, or if I actually did well on it....
