That was a squeaker though. How does the scoring work? 100-900? Is there
any ways to convert that to %?

Thanks for everyone's help!

for the adaptive, i'd say 900-1000 = 100%

Is that really the way it works? I read somewhere that you need an 80% to
pass.
505/700x100 is nowheres near 80%. So really you only need about 55% to
pass?

Yes you would be right...that's why I was having some questions about it.

If you need an 80% to pass there is no way 505/900 is 80%. Any more
thoughts?

Thanks John,

Yeah, although I can't imagine Comptia would give you a certificate for 60%.
I wish I knew how it's calculated.

How did you find the Network+? I am studying for that as we speak. What
material did you use to study?
