    What does everyone do after passing an exam? How do you celebrate? - evening out / get drunk / punt or what?

    I normally start studying for the next one.

    I'm not sure what punting is, but I got pissed after my A+ then got the books for my next cert.

    Take a good break, for some reason I can't go back and start studying right away, considering I was craming the last couple of days.

    Depends on my state of mind... I can study for a few exam, one after the another. But there's anyways a point when my brain just needs a break :lol:

    When I'm driving back from the exam centre.

    I turn the music up and have a sing on the way home.

    Peps in other cars think I'm crazy :)

    I go for a couple of beers straight after the exam as the test centre is next to a good few pubs. I usually phone the wife and let her know how the exam went then get some more beers and couple of bottles of wine on the way home for a celebration dinner.

    I don’t start studying for the next exam the same day but I will pick up the MS Press book (or whatever book I’m going to use) and have a skim over it.

    Then I drink more beer. :biggrin

    I have a few days off studying and pick up a "normal" book or two, when im finished with them, I get back on the study books again, most recently the 70-270! (I thought the A+ book was big, damn)

    Im out most Fridays/Saturdays anyway so going out for a few beers isnt really anything different.

    Yep - I do both of these.

    Celebration is usually a huge sigh of relieve and then on to convincing the misses that I need to spend another bunch of cash (for books and exam fees) on the next qualification. Can't remember the last time I read something other than a computing book or a Person/Job Spec.

    Thanks for that lot. Very interesting.
    (I was trying to be funny with the punting joke. If you don't understand, don't worry.)

    Start studying for the next one. It's easier to keep the good studying habits going. Stop studying, and it's incredibly difficult to get started again.
