The more you read the more you know. Each book has its unique things.
Sybex is a good and comprehensive book but complementing it with other material is convenient, Shon Harris is a good book and reading the CBK won't hurt.
In my case what helped the most was the experience.
Yeah. I managed to pass my exam on 2nd Jan 2018. A good start to the year...
Good luck to everyone who's going to take the exam. The new format is very different from the previous exam format which I took in March 2017. I read the CBK that comes with with my course and also Shon Harris's All-in-One 7th Edition.
I am more than glad to know that you passed your exam; Congratulations !!!
I see that there are conversations going on about the new testing method and opinions are all over the place on that subject. I personally do not wish to offer one as they are like behinds; everybody has one. What matters should be what one does with that certification. one person can build a house, many can build a nation. I hope that as one of the newest members along with all the other members we remember that we each have goals to try our best, and to make a difference in the homes, nations and world we build through knowledge, and technology. Your achievement is one of stature and standing and should bee looked upon as such by all.
Let us not forget the time, energy, sacrifices, and last but not least the money invested.
Again; Respect for your hard work and sacrifice.
