Also, this is typical: I bought the book at a brick and mortar bookseller, before I'd checked the online price. Stupid! I could have saved 30 bucks if I'd bought through this link:

Took the test yesterday and passed. I'm not surprised that I passed. I'm more disappointed at how close I was to NOT passing. Got a 792 out of 1000 where the passing score was 790. Seriously, I think the grading software misgraded one of the simulations or something! I'm not gonna complain or anything, since I passed, but I wish there was a way to see what I missed. Did I misread the instructions on a sim or something? I demand a recount!
Anyway, it's water under the transparent switching device, so I'm moving on to the next test. CCNP ROUTE, here I come.
The next test has a whole basket of landmines to worry about, and I'm taking a very disciplined approach to my preparations. There will be pretests, study goals, mind maps, lab simulations, video preparation. It'll be different this time, I promise!
