I never tried those, but do you at least own the K&B book? What are your scoring on those?

hi
yes, I've done the K&B questions at the end of each chapter.. The 1st time my score was low. Now it's better (70%) but I don't know if this is because my memory helps me when I retake these questions the 2nd time.
I've also the K&B CD! I'm trying to do their MasterExam but when I start the exam a lot of ErrorWindows comes out saying "'02:55' is not a valid Time"
I'm running under winXP
I don't know what's the problem...

Yeah, it's important to do the CD mock exams. See if you can get it working somehow... or buy enthuware software if you have little money. You need lots of mock exam practice questions. I think you are almost there... just take 3 weeks to do the mock exam questions and you should be able to get at least 70% on the exam.

You probably should get in touch with LearnKey's tech support staff to get the MasterExam program working. It's a pretty valuable tool, so you definitely don't want to just abandon it.

Yes, they are good scores if those are the scores for the 1st attempt. Multiple attempts of the same test will not work.

Hi Al,

The actual exam is generally easier than the WhizLab mock exams. According to many people here, the general rule of thumb is that you can expect to score about 10% higher on the real exam than on these mock exams. Personally, I was hovering around the 80% mark for WhizLabs, and ended up with a 98% on the real thing. So I believe you're in excellent shape with your very good mock exam scores. Good luck!
