Looking for advice on the best way to prepare for the certification? Any study guides or tips? How is the test?
There have been quite a few changes since I got certified. When I was going through it though, the written portion of the test could get a little tricky at points, but was overall not too terrible as long as I took my time. The practical portion (in my opinion) was actually pretty easy because they give you a checklist to follow. Both are "open book" and both have unlimited attempts.
My best recommendation would be to take your time and use your resources.
Best of luck to you.
