Editor’s Note: This is the seventh in a series of posts about preparing for certification exams written by CBT Nuggets trainer Anthony Sequeira. Check the blog each week for his latest installment.
Sometimes while working to earn a certification, you end up with a resource that just doesn’t work well for you.
Perhaps it’s an instructor who rubs you the wrong way. Maybe it’s a book that reads like a dishwasher repair manual. Or a simulator so buggy it doesn’t feel like the real thing at all. Such problematic resources might cause you to lose your passion for studying, and could potentially derail your goals.
If this happens, do something about it!
One post that you see often in certification support forums is something along the lines of “Is there another way to practice XYZ technology other than using the product?” I love these posts. They illustrate that the student is not having the best time with a particular training resource, and is ready to ask their peers for another option.
Do not settle for anything but the very best resources that work for you. They can make all the difference as you look to take your career to that next level!
