Hi there!

I have my certification test in 4 days and is wondering if there is anything else I should do to prepare. I have read a couple times the Sybex book and took 6 out of 8 Enthuware tests so far. I have been consistently averaging around mid-50% on those. I feel like I know the topics but I keep making stupid mistakes. I have 2 more tests I will take the next 2 days to prepare. Since I am a college student on winter break, I have 4 whole days of stuff I can do to prepare.

Thank you!

-Simon

Simon,
That's low. You need to understand why you are making mistakes so you don't keep making the same ones. I recommend taking the Sybex test, going over each wrong answer. And then repeating with the SAME Sybex test until you are shoring much higher. The trick is to tell yourself why it is the answer each time you answer. That way you train your brain to look for certain types of things.

If you are using Enthuware mock exams (or any other mock exams), it might be very useful to read this thread as well. So you don't make the mistake of rushing through all the mock exams (or going through the object-wise tests first). The difference between standard and objective-wise tests is well-explained here. And here you'll find some valuable information about how to prepare for the exam using Enthuware tests. I know all this advice is pretty useless to you, but I hope others will learn from it and won't make the same mistake. Here you'll find another post with similar advice and another bunch of useful links.
