Hey folks! We wanted to get a pulse on what people thought of having a 48-hour lockout after failing a certification. Is this timeframe too short? Too long? How could we improve the experience of having to wait to take your exam?

 

All thoughts and opinions are welcome Smiley Happy

Thanks,

Hi Julien,

 

The time that I can find to set aside for certifications is on the weekend. If I take an exam and I don't pass, certainly I'm :-( but that means I'm not going to try again for at least another week -- until the next weekend, or several more weekends after that, if I can't find the time. 

 

By the time I'm ready to take the exam again, it feels like I have to start from the beginning with my studying efforts.

48 hours is too long..I believe 12-24 hours is solid amount of time.
