The mistake I did in preparing for the exam was that I went to the question bank very late. I was looking to be comfortable and confident with each domain before jumping to the CCCure tests, but I was wrong. You will never feel confident about all the domains because till the time you will reach the last domain the first domain will get blur. So my suggestion is finish the syllabus once and jump to CCure or whichever practice tests you are using, the test gives to a feel of the exam and you will get to know what type of questions can be made out of a particular topic.

The exam was hugely concentrated on Risk Management and Business Continuity. I took around 5 hours to complete the exam, took a lot of breaks as I was in no hurry to rush back home. When I hit submit, the walk from my seat to the invigilator to collect my result was the most frightening walk of my life.

All the best guys....

    Dude, you ain't lie. They may as say "dead woman walking" as I take that walk.

    Congratulations! I had a similar approach as you - I read an entire book, did all the practice questions and then jumped into CCCure. Man, I wish I could have contained myself and been a little more structured. Too late for that now - my exam is a week away.

    Just relax, you will do well. Make sure you don't study on the last day before the exam and keep 2 things in mind while writing the exam:
    1- Think like a manager
    2- Read the question and options carefully.
