After months of prepartion, I felt that I was ready to take this certification exam, which I did this past Friday. Without revealing any of the questions presented to me during the exam, I wanted to share my observations with the rest of the potential test takers. Here goes:
Overall, as far as taking tests go, it was a highly enjoyable experience, and I'm glad I did it.
Unfortunately, I missed passing by 1 point: I got 69% and the minimum is 70%. However, since I have only book knowledge and not real-world experience (which is a necessary prerequisite for the course), I am pleased with the outcome nonetheless. I do not plan on re-taking the exam, since I am bit burnt out from reading several books recommended for the exam and doubt I would do better, since lots of the exam was material not covered in any of the books I read.
