2 weeks to go for 1st attempt - this is going to hurt
I took the Graded Troubleshooting Topology 1 - Lab 1 yesterday and got a big fat 0. In all questions I found the answer but was not able to implement the solution in time. I tried my best to practice good time management but still was not successful at that either. There were three questions that I didn't even look at due to time.
I can definitely see that you really do only have 10 minutes per
question. If you stay longer than that - even if you are "SO CLOSE" -
you must assume you are taking a 0 on a question down the
Obviously this does not bode well for my actual lab in 2 weeks. I've clearly got some preparation issues I've got to overcome.
I think my main objective has to be to stay on plan during the exam (using checklists, staying aware of points, focusing on reachability and time management) and if I run into a similar situation where I can see I'm in trouble, I avoid panicking and flopping around like a fish out of water and get as many points as I can.
I'm going to stay at 30-40 hours a week of study time until the lab and will be doing everything I can to pass - hoping the questions that I see are my strong areas vs my weak ones, etc.
Anyone have any "last minute" advice for a situation like this? I'm feeling really de-moralized but definitely haven't given up hope of passing. I've put a lot of time into my studies and feel really strong about a lot of things but it seems I might be just missing that one more level where everything clicks together.
