Finally taking test Friday - any last minute tips?

Todd BurrellTodd Burrell Member Posts: 280
I'm finally biting the bullet and I am scheduling this test for this Friday. I have read Darril's book and the Mike Meyer's book as well as the Exam Cram practice questions book and the Preplogic online tests. I feel that I have covered the objectives in fairly good detail, but I'm looking for any last minute tips anyone may have?

I know I'm probably being very pessimistic, but the high passing score seems to have me very nervous about this test...

Thanks

    review your encryptions..know when and why different ones are used. Get a good nights sleep and a lot of people recommend an energy drink before the test.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    I took one of those 5 hour energy drinks, the little ones. Finished test in 35 minutes with an 855. Wired for 4 more hours.

    I cant do the energy drinks anymore I used to drink 128oz of mt dew a day for a year straight and developed a sensitivity to caffeine and stimulants found out the hard way with a huge rockstar drink!! It was horrible..lol if i took one of those 5hr energies before i sat for a test i wouldnt even be able to sit in the chair itd be like doing a few lines of cocaine..lol id be up in the room talking to everyone else taking exams and cleaning the room from head to toe..lol windexing the windows. I just eat a good breakfast and good nights sleep. Good luck
