Tips:
Code and test every LEGAL configuration of a "for" loop. Understand how each will perform...(trying not to skirt the confidentiality agreement)

Write lots of code, tweak it and see how it changes
*****
I recommend the Study Notes by Velmurugan, they are incredibly detailed and identify many subtle features of the language I found nowhere else. They are an excellent crib review right before the exam.
I completed the first pass of the "fabulous 59" in 1:25. I spent the remaining 35 minutes reviewing all questions "Marked" during the exam (I estimate that I marked about 75% of the questions for review)
Total prep time, over 90 days, is estimated @ 120 hours.
