The cost of the written exam is far less than the lab, i would cancel the
lab and redo my study plan, i wish i knew your strengths and weaknesses,
since i don't know that, i could NOT give you any advise. But if you are not
totally comfortable with whats stated in the blueprint, i would highly
recommend to reschedule and to retake the written, 300 versus 1400. The
difference can be spent on some vendors work books or even a boot camp.
