Our Website got Attacked Today!

At about 13:00 UTC today all our web-servers crashed due to a Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack on the website. This attack (by an unknown group of hackers) caused the maximum allowed users to spike beyond what the system could handle. All three servers crashed and the message "Service Unavailable" was displayed.

We contacted our hosting company via phone right away and worked with them to restore the service. Now it was determined that it wasn't just the webservers that went down but unfortunately, the crash snowballed and took down the database servers as well.

Website service was restored again around 16:15 UTC.

We apologize for any inconvenience this attack may have caused you.

Congratulations! Let us know your lessons learned and how our products have helped you prepare.
Please remember that you are not allowed to discuss any specific questions that you encounter on the exam.

I passed back on August 25, but am just now getting to posting about it. I squeaked by with 4 MP and one BP after 4 months of preparation when I wasn't working. I used the PMPrepcast, tons of sample questions I found online, and googled any topics I couldn't grasp. Very happy to have passed and have already seen dividends in the form of recruiter interest. My biggest recommendation would be to prepare a decent amount and then set the test date. Having that hard date pushed me to finish my preparation and sit for the exam.
