Each month Jeff Love will answer one of the frequently asked questions we receive about computer and technical training and career development.

February 2002 FAQ:

What are some techniques to put use when studying for a certification examination?


Here are some things you should be doing when you study for your cert exam:

- Check out all of your training and studying options that are available.
- After taking a close look at the way you learn best, make a decision on which method is best to study for the exam: online courses, self-study, or instructor led courses.
- Look at the training that is recommended by the certification authority.
- Research and find web sites from people who have earned certification and see what they studied and how their certification experience went.
- Most people cannot study for more that one certification exam at a time, so it is not recommended.
- Make a goal of when you plan to take the certification exam and try to keep it.
- Always schedule your time on a daily basis to study for your upcoming certification test.
- If possible, find or form a study group with others who are studying for the same (or even similar) certification.
- Take some of free practice questions and tests on the web to discover where you are in your learning and studying.

I hope this helps you.
