I just want to shortly describe my experience with the above mentioned software.
In my effort to pass the 642-825 ISCW exam, I bought an exact-exams preparation test. The first interesting thing was, that all pictures included have a nice, big, red TestKing text displayed on them, almost making it impossible to read information on them. I wonder why TestKing when I had bought an Exact-Exams product. But anyway, it is not interesting.
What interesting is, that there are questions referring to a certain network scenario for which scenario the configuration information (either SDM pictures or CLI output) are comletely missing. Moreover, there are answers to these questions. Without knowing the configuration, the answers are absolutely meaningless.
When I asked the support to correct the missing information, they simply said that "this is normal" and they only guarantee 95% coverage of the real exam.
They simply did not want to understand, that this is not the question of coverage but rather the fact, that the product I bought is partly useless.
On the other hand, the provided testing software crashes from time to time, and therefore I were unable to go through all the questions.
Eventually, the story ends here. I have payed for something what is partly useless.
Now everyone can conclude as necessary.
You probably haven't realized I am a woman. Wash up is what I am supposed to do, not routing! I guess I keep some balance by doing the wash up thing :-)))
The typical qualifications story. I don't know if there are many, but I am sure there jobs that do not require certifications. When I started working in an ISP I saw with my own eyes what experienced people can do "certification-less". There must be jobs out there that need the job done instead of having the test passed.
Still, life is cruel and looking for a job in hard times is even more cruel. I had resigned from my position recently and I am leaving by the end of this month. Employer delayed 6 months of my payment. I won't tolerate such behavior. Nobody has to pay me in the forums, but my employer simply has to. I am lucky enough to not have any particular obligations and I will survive for some time until I see what I will do.
Good luck to you and to all of us!
