First Exam

By cherrycoke78 ·
I am studying toward my first MSCE exam.
I study using internet based instruction, no classroom. How long should I expect to have to study and practice before trying the first exam?

until you score 900

by bohnrc In reply to First Exam

You need to get a good practice test cd and take several tests until you can average a 900 on the test because you know the material cold not just memorized from the practice questions.

I always tried to get at least one perfect score on test exams before I felt I was ready to take them.

I also tended to try doing the tests faster once I got into the low 90% range. I figure that if I can get a good score in a tenth the amount of time alloted, or less, I know the answers to the questions presented.

A third tactic is to always check the explanations of the answers in the early stages if your test software allows it. Reading the explanations, even for answers you know, helps you remember other things that may appear on the exams.
