waiting for your reply Regards Vishwas [ March 29, 2004: Message edited by: Vishwas Hegde ]
Hi Vishwas, I wouldn't like to sound patronising, but here's what I'd probably do. 1st don't panic. 2nd don't switch off your exams, do one and go over the wrong answers. Then do another one and again go over the wrong answers, etc... You have to make the best out of your time, so why waste it! 3rd You've got a book that has some good notes at the end of each chapter, go over them when you can. 4th forget the outside world for the coming days, it will still be there after you passed Anyway, cheer up and good luck, Gian Franco [ April 13, 2004: Message edited by: Gian Franco Casula ]
Hi Vishas don't worry about that results i am getting nearly the same, and i'll porbably set in April 7th, but i am sure i'll improve that results, just be confident and everything is going right! Good luck!
Hi, There is absolutely no reason to panic. If you are scoring between 65% and 75% on the individual topics then that is the first step in the good direction. Try to concentrate on the areas that indicates that you are not yet strong enough in. Once you get more as 80% on each individual objective try to do the final certification. Bear in mind that the questions in the mock exam can cover many objectives. Do not panic when you see a question with a long exhibit. Instead try to eliminate the incorrect answers. Take your time. Do not focus (yet) on the scores and the time, but try to understand the question and the intention of the author, he probably wants to trick you by adding a small (almost not noticeable) glitch. I really meant it: take your time, do not rush. Our new improved dynamic difficulty adjustment mode study technique might be able to help you better, and it should be fun too. Good luck, if you need more advise or help we are all here to help you. We will get you through it.
