Are 135 minutes enough for the exam, considering it is based on the case studies and a lot of complex diagrams?

Unless you are a slow reader (not that there's anything wrong with that), you should have no problems. I took the test a couple years ago and I don't recall coming anywhere near the time limit. Some of the questions go very quickly and that helps speed things up.

I have to concur - 135 minutes is more than enough. (I think I used something like 90 minutes myself for the whole exam.) The diagrams and questions aren't quite so complicated that you're really in danger of using the whole limit.

hi Mukesh!

time limit should be enough for the exam.

although it would help if you can try to answer the non-case study questions first before proceeding with those lenghty questions.

that way you'd have a higher chance of passing in case time runs up on you.

cheers,
Paul
