    Hi Guys,

    just to let you all know that I failed the exam (and im convinced by one question).

    I scored 681/1000, the pass mark being 700.

    Im sure someone will comment that not all questions are weighted the same.

    However, it has simply made me more determined to obtain a higher mark and of course more on to the next one.

    Secondshot voucher applier PRIOR to booking the first exam so the retake is free!

    Best of luck with the re-take!

    At least you know your extremely close to being able to pass this exam, who knows, on another day with a different set of questions you may have.

    Let us know how you get on! 8)

    70-640 now pass!

    Dear all,

    A 4 days after failing, I re-took the test and I am happy to announce that I passed.

    For 2 of those days I was ill and took those days as sick.

    It took me a day to get over the shock of the fail, and the 2 days of being ill made it EXTREAMELY difficult to focus and want to be studious.

    That said (and having the time off from work) I re-revised from 09:00 till 01:30 the next day obtaining high passes on exam revision. Waking up early the next day (06:00) and carrying on.

    The thing that worked for me was LONG intense period’s work of study, sacrifice, sheer will and determination.

    Again cannot stand around, I will now move onto the next exam (70-642 Windows server 2008 – Network Infrastructure).

    I have noticed that it has taken me over 2 months to prepair for this exam (as well as the previous 70-680, I want to further reduce this time and may need to become more of a recluse than I have already become!)
