    Default Boson scores

    Hi all

    Just wanted to know what would people say would be a good score in Boson to know if you were ready to take the CCENT exam. I don't personally think I'm ready yet I've worked through the Lammle book and CBT nuggets series for ICND1 and i'm currently going through labs daily and subnet practice to make sure I hammer home everything.

    I took my first boson practice test today and scored 65%, I know people say these exams are probably more difficult than the actual exam but what you be aiming to score in Boson to feel confident to take the actual exam?

    Cheers!
    Goals for 2018: Not over committing this year so CCENT and then CCNA and see how it goes from there.

    I personally wait until I can get close to 100% on the practice exams. Taking them over and over defeats the purpose though so use sparingly.

    For any practice exam I take I like to get to 90 or higher on a consistent basis. I would get your hands on multiple practice exams and rotate between them so as to avoid memorizing questions and answers.

    Answering pooled questions over and over, you will memorize the answers and not the concept of how/why you got the answer.
    If you got 65%, stop doing the tests and study book+video+lab start to finish (or however you learn best) and then test.

    Thanks, I've taken 2 different pools of questions and all the questions I got wrong answers for I've made a list of topics to go back over and study in more detail. Some were just stupid mistakes not reading the question properly or rushing it others I can see where I need to go into more detail.

    I'm definately not going to memorize the answers I've fallen into that trap before

    It's still useful even after you memorize the answers. When you get the questions, even if you know the answer right away, still stop and take the time to say, well A is wrong because of this, B is wrong because this, C is right because of that. It'll help reinforce the material without just memorizing and recognizing the correct answer.

    Personally I don't like to retake the practice tests so I usually only take them once and try to get at least 60% right.

    I know some other people that take them until they have memorized all of the answers.

    I think I’m going to go over the topics in a bit more detail for the next week or 2 then take another different pool of questions to see how I fare and then get the exam booked for sometime in November.

    I’ve stopped and started a bit this year so determined to get this passed before the year is out!

    At the end of the day memorizing is still "learning" it just may give you false results. I try and rotate through all the boson tests to keep it fresh.
