    Default Failed 103 again yesterday

    Came up from a 360 to 430, was running 75-85% on practice exams. 14 fill-in the blanks ( actually went back through and counted) and my mind went totally blank. cant take it for 2 weeks per CompTIA. So, time to regroup and look at the areas missed on my score sheet and go back and hammer on those.

    This is exam is kicking my ass, 1st certification exam I have ever failed twice... I passed CISSP, CRISC, etc on the first pass through ye there I am on number 3 with this one

    I'm sorry to hear it repeated again.

    I recommend go to testout Linux+ training:

    https://testoutce.com/products/comptia-linux

    Take one free week and see how you will like it. Do all quizzes, Labsims and print for yourself all "Facts" Or save as PDF for further notes.
    You can deactivate subscription any time during first week and you will not be charged.
    If you like it, take subscription for month or two and pass 104 too.

    Wow that doesn't make me feel too confident. I heard ucertify has the best practice exams for this test. I'm not sure how much it is since I got it through WGU. I am going to take the 103 in a couple hours if you have any last minute advice for me.

    Sorry to hear it man, but don't be hard on yourself about it honestly. I have passed CISSP, CISM and now CISA easily and on the first go. It took me 3 times for the lowly CEH. Missed it by 1 point twice. Like you, I was in the 80s on practice exams. Not sure what the hangup was. I can tell you right now that I would never do a 'fill in the blank' exam. Drag n drop sure, but not that. Too easy to go blank like you said, or know what it is but not the exact word they're looking for.

    Yep, failed with a 350 today. I wonder for the fill in the blank questions we should just type the directory and leave out the /. I finished in 27 minutes and felt way better about it than normal. I may study Ucertify some more and jump on the Testout practice questions and possibly look into getting a book.

    I am using the ucertify app, "The Linux Command Line" book, and the Brunson/Walberg Cert guide may have to look at testout

    Gonna have to concur with jcundiff. The 103 was not easy in that you're expected to try and remember every possible CLI path and deciding if they want the entire path or just the last command in the path. Failed the 104 once already and deciding if it is even worth the effort.
