Passed this morning with 80%. I studied relentlessly for 1 month.

I used the Khalid Mughal text as well as K&B. I spent most of my time with K&B book because it was geared more for what was needed to know to get through the exam, were the Mughal book went deeper into the fundamentals. I will continue to use the Mughal as a reference.

Tips for those yet to take the test:
Give yourself time to study sufficiently.
Make sure you understand the material for each objective before taking any mock exams.
Take as many mock exams as you can. I think the Marcus Green tests are a pretty good gage so save those for the last. The Chisholm tests are quite hard and should be used as one of your first mock exams (IMO). Once you've mastered the material from that one, use the Marcus Green to see how you might score on the actual exam. I got 76% on those the night before the exam. Don't forget Rules Round up !!

Thanks JavaRanch!!
Thanks Kathy and Bert!!
