    ME ofcourse!!!! :biggrin

    Ahhhh....it feels so good to get it all over with. Well actually I passed it yesterday also, but I was a little busy and got home late. Anyways I gotta say that my head is still hurting a little with all the intensive studying and revising I did over the past 2 weeks :blink But it was all worth it.

    Well, here's what happened: I reached the testing center and did the necessary formalities, grabbed a cup of cold water, relaxed my head and waited for them to call me in the exam room. I prayed, clicked "start" and the exam begun. First question was very tricky and unexpected. The first phase of the exam......probably the first 20 questions.....were very tricky and it sure got me worried. The rest after that was what I was looking for.........so I devoured them. When I was at question 73, the screen went black and the lights went out -- power failure! And surprisingly for a testing center, they had no UPS to the systems! I went out and was more worried than when I had started the exam. I asked the guy if I would have to start the exam over again and he said no. That made me more worried, so I asked if my time was still running......he said no. He explained that CompTIA detects when stuff like this happens and the exam automatically pauses and resumes when everything is back to normal. So I had to wait about 15mins for them to switch over to generator and did whatever they did and restore the exam. The guy laughed and told me I should be glad this happened during the exam........cuz it gave me 15 extra mins to relax and get my head in tune :D

    Anyways, I resumed when everything was back up. I reviewed my marked questions and did a thorough review of all questions. This is usually the part where you right some wrongs and wrong some rights! :oops: As I completed my review, time was running out, and when I had 25 seconds left on the clock, I clicked "end exam". "Congratulations!" was all I wanted to see on the screen......and I did! I thanked God and went out smiling! Passed with 735/900. I had 90 questions with 2hrs to complete them. I am now officially Network+ Certified! Yeeeehaaaa!!!!

    And for you future test takers, don't worry........tips are coming soon right here!!!

    That's right......90. But I had 2hrs on the clock so I wouldn't dream to complain :D

    For my 2 A+ exams, I had 100 questions each instead of 90. But they didn't give me any extra time for those......had to stick it with the 90mins :x
