    And I failed... Not surprising considering that apart from the odd playing around with Linux - I don't use it that often.

    I logged into my Prometric account, saw the "failed" status next to the Linux+ beta exam when I was checking the 71-686 results.

    Well commiserations Ken, can't win em all ! Checked Comptia and Pearson Vue sites, Comptia site has no mention of any of the two beta exams taken, Pearson Vue just mentions 'Taken', so guess I just have to sit tight, I fully expect mine to say fail too !

    Passing a Beta exam is quite a lot harder than a normal one.

    Not sure what a gooser is, Urban dictionaires got me worried !

    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=gooser

    Well I did once get thrown out of a vegas club for touching a girls ass, does that count ? :oops:

    Hey if I looked as much like leonardo dicaprio in a suit as you I'd be laughing ! :biggrin

    Ha ha must be a Liverpool saying. A Top Gooser is someone who sleeps with loads of birds :biggrin (Good times)

    I look like Leo if he were on crystal meth, lost all his money and was one of those tramps you see in town with a carboard cutout of a guitar :cry: (Bad times)

    Well, I received my score sheet for the Linux+ beta and my score was: 529

    While I knew it was a fail, it's not a bad score for someone who has really only played around with Linux for basically a few weeks :)
