    As I understand it the questions are graded on their difficulty level, I may be wrong, also as I just recently took the exam they mentioned that there may be some unscored questions which comptia uses to evaluate questions for future exams. So best not to skip any if you can avoid it.

    From what I figured out, you have to get a 71% to pass. So I think it's somewhere around 18....maybe 20 that you can miss. I would shoot for less than 10, if you can help it. Better to be safe.

    Can I ask how you arrived at 71% ? It's not that I doubt you, it's just that I'm a bit confused about how they score. From what I understand, the test is graded on a scale from 100 to 900, and the minimum passing score is 646. Well, if you adjust that to a "normal" 0-800 scale, it's like 546/800, which is around a 68%.

    I've heard the passing percentage marked as everything from 68% to 81%. I highly doubt hte latter (that's a pretty high mark), but I'm not sure about the specifics. I suppose that it really doesn't matter in the end, but I definitely hope it's not like an 80%...

    It's wierd how network+ is somewhat out dated i guess, and need a low mark to pass...and for the CCNA certification you need at least an 85% to pass,and you're graded as you go i think...but i'm going to be writting the older CCNA 640-607, not the one with the bridging exam. A good site for the CCNA is http://www.celticrover.com/tig/ccna/ccnareviews.asp
    he has the old and new material
