    Default 507 and failed

    Wow what a tough test. I had 60 questions and 2 hrs. I thought I was prepared enough but I clearly was not.
    I used Transcender, Messors videos, Wiley's Windows 7 Configuration.
    I pretty much got the same all across the board. back up recovery was my lowest section. The rest was about even.
    How long do I have to wait before I can take it again? 2 weeks?

    If it was your first attempt I believe you can take it right away. Failing it a second time means you have to wait two weeks. This exam took me a few tries, just keep at it. Good luck.

    You can take your 2nd attempt immediately.

    How much did you study/lab before taking the test?

    How much experience do you have with windows7 in general?

    You probably just need to lab it up a little more. Good luck on your retake!
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    I didnt do a lot of labbing... I studied alot, problem I have is my memory is not great. I have a fair amount of experience with win7.. I seemed to get obscure questions and a lot of command line type questions. I am going to keep at it.. I think I will do some labs this time and use Ucertify.

    If it is your first attempt you can retake it after 24 hours. If its your second attempt, then you have to wait 2 weeks.
    2016 Goals: GCIH, OSWP - DONE!

    Keep the positive attitude.

    I see no Certifications listed, just curious if this was your first ever attempted cert.

    I do have A+ and I passed the 70-640 test last year. I passed that one on the first attempt. I have never been a good test taker but I will keep at it. I want this cert... I really think nerves had a lot to do with it.

    I took this test twice and failed. I'm studying as hard as i can and i'm appealing my exam. I think i was failed because of one section the second attempt i got 647 and 682 the second time. This is clearly unfair exam ,but diffcult. This exam will not keep me down!
