    Well I passed the 220-602 today and it feels awesome.

    The exam was at 11AM and I had some serious butterflies in my stomache. I thought I wouldn't be so nervous after sitting the essentials exam about a month ago - how wrong I was. After marking the first 20 questions for review I felt awful and sure I was going to fail. I settled down a bit after that and gained a bit more confidence. I seemed to get alot of questions on networks and protocols and troubleshooting connectivity issues.
    There also seemed to be a few questions on things I really wasn't familiar with. It threw me at first but my advice to anyone else who finds this is to not panic and work through the question and answers methodically. I managed to rule out incorrect answers leaving me with a pretty strong idea of the correct answer.
    Got to the end and I thought I'd failed - then the survey took ages, the little egg timer seemed to come on for ages after each page. I covered my eyes and didnt dare look at the results - I think the guy in the exam room thought I was a bit weird. Anyhow I passed with a score of 785 which isnt too bad.
    I used the Mike Meyers AIO as my main study material, but struggled to go through it for a third time so used the Professor Messer videos for revision (thanks to Phoenicks56 for mentioning them - superb)

    Thanks to all on this forum for their advice and support

    Sorry to waffle on
