Hi,
Need some opinion. I purchased K & B book and read it once and did all self tests. I scored around 80% in them. I did Marcus Green mock exam 1 and scored 75%. I am in little hurry to take certification. I am ready? at least to pass. or I need more time? Please suggest.

Regards,
Joseph Pater

If you're in a hurry, I'd say that you're ready. I think you can pass the exam with scores like that. Certainly, I'd say to take as much time as you can, but I think you're likely to pass if you're consistently scoring like that on the various mock exams. I'd suggest checking out Dan Chisholm's mock exams, as well.

Thanks Corey McGlone,
Yes I need to take exam quick. some binding reasons. I don't have time to take even master exam on K & B book. It is a pity I know but it is fact.
What I did was, I went through chapters carefully and exam watch and did Self Test. Hope Real exam will be similar to those in Self Test.

I will definitely update my exam results to this wonderful group.
Any more last minute suggestions please share.
Thanks,
Joseph Peter

My only suggestion is to take as many mock exams as you can before the exam. One of the trickiest parts of the exam (for me, anyway) is to make sure that you read each and every question very carefully. There can be all sorts of hidden "gotchas" waiting for you. The more mock exams you take, the better you'll get at reading questions carefully.

While taking mock exams, I often found that reading questions more carefully would usually get me 2-3 more questions correct.
