I must say that the exam was way off from what I used as study guides. I was surprised with the level of depth most of the questions went into, especially having to analyze full page logs and memorizing exact syntax and commands with options.
The practice and review material in the book were nowhere near reflective of the exam style questions, which really threw me off.
That combined with ongoing renovations at the test facility both factored into my failing mark.
I filed a complaint with Pearson Vue to hopefully get a complimentary retake on the exam. I did not appreciate jack hammering and drilling in the adjacent office space.
Maybe I was too cocky since I sucessfully passed the CISSP in December, or did not take the exam seriously enough.
Either way, I am disappointed, but will try harder next attempt.
