    […] I need to spend 1 hour during the weekdays and 2 and 1/2 hours during weekends to complete preparation in about 3 months. It took about an hour to prepare the schedule. To see the schedule click here […]

    Very nicely guided….

  3. Florante Navaja said,

    Nice guide. I am also preparing myself for this certification which i am planning to take in 4 months time. what i find in this guide though is that it will take a full time and intensive review which obviously is difficult to follow for a full time software programmer like me in 10 weeks time.
    so perhaps 4 months is feasible. Good luck to all of us.
