    Hey guys, it turns out SISAS did not pan out the way I was hoping today; I failed and will need to retake this.

    It was fun giving this a shot before the official material is out but from a practical perspective I might just wait the books out instead of dropping another 250 on an attempt.

    I did not bomb it completely and actually felt pretty comfortable while taking it until I got into some in-depth questions on a topic that I didn't expect to see covered so much because it's not on the exam outline (I can't really say much due to NDA other than I really wish it was more explicit that this was included in SISAS).

    If you are currently studying for this I can tell you with certainty that the ipExpert SISAS videos are not nearly enough to get through this test which is why I was glad I supplemented my learning with the documentation from Cisco.

    I guess I will try to hone in on my weak areas and lab up more before the next attempt, I need to take at least a short time to rest because doing these while working full time is not easy like many of us here already know.

    I am not as crushed as I was expecting after a failure and am still going to hack away and finish CCNP within the next few months.

    Edit: What I might do at this point is just start taking notes for SITCS so that by the time the books come out, I will have already taken notes for both exams and will add to the notes from the book.

    That sucks man. It's always hard to study for new exams especially ones which do not have official cert guides etc. Keep plugging away at it and you'll get it next time!

    Sorry to hear things didn't go well. Just nail it the second time around.

    I have thought about doing it too but have pushed it to next year and concentrate on getting my NP first. The books for the security exams should be out somewhere in January is my guess.
