    Default Failed for the 3rd time

    This time, everything I scored bad on last time I did great. But, what I scored high on last time, I did bad. Scored lower than I ever had, and I've had a LOT more study and hands on time this round, too. Had to be a bad day. Lots of misspellings, lots of spaces where they shouldn't be, and just slow.

    Taking it again Mid-May. Passing it, too.

    Good attitude. What are you using to study and what areas did you not do so well on.

    Don't let fails get at you. I've failed 297 5 times, trick is to get straight back up.

    I'm from uk and follow a football (soccer ) team and our manager says "on days we will get beaten but when we do, we have to move on quickly to the next match and not dwell"

    Hope any of that helps

    IMO you shouldn't wait til May to retake it. Take it ASAP and you'll have abetter chance at it.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    Not sure what resources you are using but if you can get a copy of Testout that will help. It cleared up some issues I was having with DNS. Also Oreilleys DNS book is really good as well.

    Good luck!

    Just got TestOut and giving that a shot. Already looks pretty good. I'm willing to spend a bit more on training and pass!

    Scheduled for May 19th, 1pm. Going to defeat this 817CH!

    Don't feel bad, I failed that one twice. I took it last week for the 3rd time (two and a half years later) and passed, I think only because read over and over MS Press's 70-291 book, and two practice tests from like 4 different companies for the entire 2 years I was in Iraq.

    Good luck the next time!
