Smile Passed !!!

Hi,

Just would like share that i passed the test with 87%. This forum really helped me a lot in my preparation.

Though in the sample test i scored only 48% this forum gave me the cofidence otherwise I wouldn't have taken the test at all.

Sincere thanks to Bala, cfw, tvtm and all of you.

I should tell something that may be interested to you all.

I followed tvtm / luigi thought of attending the questions that don't have exhibit first followed by one with exhibits. So within first 40-45 mins i was able to finish 30 questions.

"Concentration is what matters most" at the test center (that's just how i felt).

Once again thanks to all and I'm glad i know this forum.

Thanks,
Srini.

castaneda,

1. Number of questions with exhibit : 26

(That's for me. I don't know whether that is a standard). But as Bala already pointed out, exhibits were repeating so don't worry much about exhibits.

2. I would say the format is almost same as the Sample test but not the questions. But the concepts from the Sample questions will really help ( Try to take ICE, Bala, cfw, Whizlab, Ivan sample tests).

You may have to think like a PM when taking the exam(Bala's suggestion)

Good luck in your test !!!
Srini.

Thanks Bala... and Thanks for your nice question set too..

I would rate Whizlab trial version to 7-8/10.

One good thing about the whizlab test it gave me a feeling of taking the actual test.

Your question set in this forum seems to cover most of the objectives.

I would prefer to have your questions in Whizlab tool. (That will make it 8+). [i know you are the co-author for the tool]

My rating for all the tests in the following order (1- Very good, .. 5- OK)

1. ICE sample test
2. Bala's
3. Whizlab
4. cfw (I liked only 1-50 questions)
5. Ivan

Thanks,
Srini.

Thanks Iftikhar...

Instead of telling my stories I can tell you what is important.

Read Fowler & Larman and Take ICE, Bala, Whizlab, cfw and Ivan's tests. For every question read the related concept in the books. That should be more than enough.

Ofcourse experience will help but not a mandatory requirement.

My prep time: 1 month- sincerely. But i have read these 2 books once, 6 months before taking the test.

Srini.
