I think the training material that I should have looked at was the Cisco
Assessor. I suspect that might have given me some insight into how they
phrase and word the questions, short of a real test. Maybe I need to look
at some material from other vendors.
Yes, I agree it isn't torture. I did learn much from the process.

You simply need more bottled oxygen, more bear fat, glucose pills and a most
importantly better Sherpa!!!
Wherever you are you need a study partner to bounce idea's off of, to work
with, and most importantly to get insight from...
It's really quite easy once you understand how they want the work done...
Don't think of it as "torture"... its training... some people require less
Keeping going its only money... you'll make it back... believe me

I messed my 2nd R&S lab attempt Tuesday. In comparison to the first
attempt, I was able to handle time management better and get to all the
questions this time. However, I left the exam feeling that it was close.
The scoring showed I was not as close as I thought. I had missed some
categories that I though I had nailed down. There were some questions that
I know I clearly missed, and others that I had reservations as to exactly
what they were looking for. I suspect there were some small details that
were missed. Many of the questions were clearly vague and probably mean to
be that way.
I am trying to decide what to do next. Continue on with this self torture
or quit this all together. I had spent about 1 = years studying and at
least 6 months of intense 20-30 hours per week studying. I went though the
IE vol 1-3 (at least half of the labs twice), Cisco ASET and some 2 year old
GK boot camp materials.
