    Default Forgot to reschedule test...

    Has anyone else ever forgot to reschedule a test and didn't realize you needed to take it until the day of? (Yea, I know, probably a lot haven't.)

    I was in the process of rescheduling an exam this weekend which I thought was scheduled to be at the end of this week, signed in to the site, went to where I needed to reschedule it... but then realized I didn't have my credit card on me (it costs a little to reschedule this one). But it was late at night, I was tired, figure I would just do it later instead of going to find my wallet.

    I've had zero intentions on even taking this exam within the next month btw and knew I wanted to rescheduled it, reason why I wasn't too concerned about taking the test this week and didn't have the day memorized.

    Waited until today to log in at work and get it rescheduled. Long story short, at noon today I will be taking an exam that I have barely studied for. Good times

    My experience with Pearson Vue is they won't let you reschedule if it's within 24 hours. I'm not familiar with ISC2 tests, other than my own and I didn't have these issues. Sometimes, if the test center has room they will let you take the exam towards the end of the day. But once you're committed to a test date there's not a lot of wiggle room.

    Yea, I already talked with their online support and called them. No budging those guys. I'll chalk this up as an expensive experience.

    Never know though... There is always a chance.

    At least you will get a look at the test - so it still has some value. You will be able to gauge your knowledge. Who knows, you might actually pass - don't go in there thinking you will automatically fail, because you will.

    This happened to me with GCWN. I completely forgot it was about to expire and remembered 5 days before the deadline. It was either not showing, or rushing to find an opening at a testing center. Although I was a able to secure a slot, I didn't have time to review at all or prepare an index and ended up failing by a paper-thin margin. I still beat myself over this being the only exam I've failed in my life, but it is what it is.

    Got 604... A bunch of topics I didn't have a clue on that were on the test. Got a good idea of what it covers though.

    That is one long test! My eyes were getting a irritated toward the end. I'm sure I could knock it with a few weeks of studying... Will probably get moving on that now too.

    yep, I was in your footsteps last week! I tried to reschedule the exam 23 hours before the test from the pearsonvue website (the limit is 24 hours)
    but was forced to take the test, which i passed with a score of 883/1000.

    good luck!

    Can't say I ever "forgot" about an exam I studied for. When I'm paying for an exam out of my own pocket, I schedule the exam, check and double check it's booked, If I know if I'm not ready or can't make it for some reason, I reschedule well before the no change date, check and double check that's it's rescheduled for the date I want it for.

    I hear the length of the test is really what makes it difficult. I've heard the questions can be tricky, but overall they aren't terrible.

    How do you know what your score was if they don't provide it for those who pass?

    I really thing Cisco should have much more labs in their exams overall, what do you think?

    The GSEC 5 hours long, I took it straight thru, had to piss like a race horse by the end of it.
