    Nyargh! they've cancelled on me again! Perhaps its a sign i should forget about cisco as "they" wont let me take the exams lol!

    Still I managed to get in locally for monday at 2.15pm, means time off work tho :(

    Seriously though i have kept up the study and will be doing more over the weekend, ill try to look at it as a bonus, if i fail now im going to instead go for a mcqualification instead.

    Bah

    bah, arrived at work this morning, saw my appointment printout on desk and thought tihs (backwards), only gone and forgot to put my photo ID in my wallet.

    So will have to leave work at 12 to go home to pick it up, exam is at 2.15 so have plenty of time, but making sure with my crummy bus service

    This exam isnt meant to be lol

    Still otherwise i feel reasonably confident.

    Something that occured to me as well, the lady invigilating the test asked me who I did training with, i said I self teached and she seemed quite shocked at that

    Made me laugh

    Well i cant give away too much, NDA and all, but my first hint would be to NOT fear the exam, everything they asked was in the book cisco book, and it wasnt as tricky as i though it would be.

    Make sure you know your commands and where to use them, although i had one or two sims it could easily be different, also if you are generally knowledgeable about basic networking, then you should be fine.

    Also take the time to do the walk through at the beginning, thats 15 mins to familiarise yourself with how each question works, or even just to get your heartrate down and getting into exam mode.

    Sorry i cant think of anything else otherwise id be revealing what was on my exam (yours could be completely different anyway), i took about an hour to complete, you get 90 mins so dont rush the questions, you only get one shot to answer them so make sure you double check what you select, and are 100% (or as close to) positive its the answer you want.

    Best of luck
