    Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and try again.

    cry?

    Seriously though, ten points is nothing. Spend a week or two boning up on the areas you had issues with, and get back in there. You'll be passed in no time.

    Work hard on the areas you were weak in, and take it again. Don't give up... you were only a smidgen from a pass.

    You will get it. 8)

    You were likely to be one or two questions away, as others have said, get back on the books, focusing on areas you didnt score highly on and go back knowing you have a great chance to pass

    Exactly this. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and give it another go. If you study the areas where you're weakest, you should do fine on your next attempt!

    I failed my 602 exam last week by about the same numbers, something which I really should have put behind me by now. I recommend a day of feeling sorry for yourself, (as I did), then get stuck back into the studying (and avoid the evil temptation of COD4) and pass the exam next time with a better than average score:)

    Good isn't usually cheap, and cheap isn't usually good. You tend to get what you pay for.

    If you just want a bunch of practice questions that contain little to no explanations, that you have to check to see whether they got the right answer or not, and might only be marginally relevant to the exam, by all means, get a cheapie practice exam product. But if you want a high-quality product that contains detailed explanations of why the right answers are wrong, and is put through a rigorous editing process, then I'd recommend you get one from a company that does those things. If you download demos from all the major practice exam companies, I am confident that the difference in quality will be clear. :thumbleft

    Like others have said, it's only a few questions you've missed it by.

    Keep at it and you'll pass!
