Hi folks

Passed the 804 test during the week with 86%

I studied solidly for the test for the last 3 months
(actually since new year but less full-on)
I used K&B7 and Gupta books and then I made around 200 Anki flashcards and tried to get the vast amount of material into my head!!
If you stick at repeating them, the Anki cards do really work!
They come in handy for revising later too.

I sat the Enthuware and Whizlab practice tests and wrote out codes to explore ones where I was wrong or confused
Towards the end I used the leitner mode in Enthuware to move all the questions gradually over to the right hand column.
This is great if you have the time to do it.

The test itself was the same as (or a touch harder than) Enthuware level for me.
Having to do 66 Qs is so much more manageable than the 90 though!
I had about 30 mins to go over my marked ones

Thank you very much to JavaRanchers for much help this year
And thank you especially to Enthuware.
The test software and forum are a hugely helpful learning environment and preparation tool

Cheers folks
Dan
