Good read :)

That last bit when clicking the End Exam button, every single time I do this it is the most nerve wracking and painful process I have ever had the pleasure to do :D

Also a question "they will hire you at 20+ an hour" for a fresh CCNA? thats good money where I live, maybe I should think about emmigration to the US

Click the submit button when I did my ccent definitely was nerveracking. First time taking a certification exam, and Cisco exam and that submit I was shaking.

I really like the studying so you can teach the specific items. Thats how I've been studying for my icnd2 and I'm heading to do my CCNA security after that. Personally if I can't teach things and explain how the concepts work then I am no where near ready. Thats how I learned how to subnet, I made sure I could teach my gf and had her help me practice :)

Excellent write-up.

On my last exam, it took about a minute for the score screen to come up. Talk about almost having a nervous breakdown.

The nice part is that you are actually working for Cisco. By the way, if you don't mind my asking, what is your location?

I've taken three Cisco cert tests and have never gotten a score screen at the end. Just a lame, generic survey. I always have to wait until I go back out to the lobby to get my printout to find out if I even passed.
