I really feel terrible !!! One more question I would have been to the promisrd land !!!. Can u beleive I scored only 50%. Now my question is
1) How many days should I wait to register again ?
2) I want to get a decent good score how many days prep will be needed ? I have been preparing for this one for 2 weeks.
Congrats to all those who passed on the Dec 1ST. You guys rock and I suck ....

Palani-
Did you take any mock exams? What did you score on them?
I would recommend not taking the exam until you can consistently score about 80% on the mock exams. Taking the mocks should help you to figure out what areas you need to study and how much.

Don't be disappointed Palani With a little more work you will get it. Keep coming by and ask/answer questions. As Jess said, take plenty of mock exams and do code a lot. Practice is the key of your success.
Don't be desperate, you'll get it
In the meantime, I'm moving this topic to the Results forum. Please continue the discussion there. Thank you

Thank you Valentin and Jesicca. I will follow your advice and try to do as much mocks as possible. Sorry about making my posting in the wrong area. In 3 weeks I will be ready to WALK THE PATH !!!

Hi Palani,
I think you just picked the wrong ticket from the lottery.
Whilst it is important to score well on the exam it is more important to practice a lot. And I mean a lot. This will not only help you passing the exam but will help you also in your professional career.
Feel yourself lucky, they are giving you the pleasure to study again. I would be honored ;-)
Have a look at the webpage Jessica and Valentin are referring too, good overview but not (yet) complete.
Have a look at our free online certification centre. The website gives you the oppertunity to study each objective individually. If you feel strong enough (what I advise in your case) then take the final mock exam and look in what area you are weak and in which area you are strong.
If you take this approach then you know straight away on which objective you need to concentrate the most.
Best of luck, no matter what you decide.

Yes... they are right .. my suggestion is take more time, don't be hurry, just analyze which parts did you fail most, then do a lot codes and mock exams exercises.
I also didn't pass the SCBCD Beta exam (My score was only 61%) .. just many days ago I did it with 94%... as long there is a will, there is a way.

Palani -
Don't be too tough on yourself. You'll get it next time.
And remember - anyone that gets over 52% overstudied!!!
Good luck!
TJ
