failed my Second attempt (Here is my notes)
This is my second attempt, the first on was on jun 2015. This time i was well prepared although things didn't go the way i want .
before i share my experience i would like to mention that INE material is so comprehensive and very well organized , nothing in the real exam ( technology speaking ) that is not in the workbooks or discussed in the ATC .
One draw back of INE full scale labs is that they didnt give you the real experience of the real lab ( the interface and the complexity of the topology )
The real lab topology is way huge and complex , add to that the time constrains and the atmosphere .
The only reason that someone could fail is nontechnical matters ( time management , stress management, strategy in terms of what task to do first and how to group the tasks ) .
the last three months i focused on full scale labs . A useful thing i did is that i build part of the topology and practice that part alone , playing with the protocols in that part .
i am thinking to come back two months from now , this time i am sure i am going to nail it dawn .
