This past Saturday, I finally took this exam...and passed with an 84%.

I was actually a bit surprised as I didn't think I did as well as that.

So my advice?

1. HFSJ was the book I used for this exam. I wasn't sure I was going to like the format. However, it really did help me to visualize and understand some of the concepts. This is a good book.

2. In terms of mock exams, I used both Enthuware and Whizlabs. Whizlabs is generally a bit harder than the actual exam. However, it helps you to think and understand concepts a little better. Enthuware was pretty close in terms of difficulty to the real thing. In fact, some of their questions are VERY close to the real thing. I think you can use either one of them but I like to be thorough.

The exam was 80 questions and you had almost 3 hours for it. However, I was pretty much done after 90 minutes. I ran through it once and then reviewed the questions I marked. Some of these questions do not count towards your total. Without going into details, a couple of questions I had were obvious questions they were validating for possible future purposes.

If you are willing to put the effort in and use the tools mentioned above, you will have success. Best of luck everyone.
