Hi,

I am calm on Test day. Stop reading before 1 hour of exam and it's useful.

Thanks

Anyone recommend reasonably priced test exams for NA/NP Wireless, Design, and Data Center? Everything I see is so high Id be better off taking the real test and failing.

never test in the afternoon. I've had a few times where something broke at work and had to troubleshoot
and fix which made me late & barely making the exam on time.

conversely, I've never scheduled exams during on call weeks for fear something breaking and having to get into work in the middle of the night and working till morning and then having to take an exam.

I usually take them during a day off. I like to wake up drink some coffee and eat and relax a little.

I will usually do a quick review of the stuff I struggle to memorize. I usually like to take my test around 10am.

Alot of really good advice in here but one that may or may not apply, take the day off on the day before the test. For some people (like me), it helps me relax, and truthfully, once your get to the NP level, if you don't know it by the day prior, you are done before you sit. The week prior to the exam should be spent going through practice exams in the book (or if you get access to practice exams through another source, like work/school) and make minor reading sessions to fine tune where you are lacking. I did this on Route/Switch and I was more at peace than I was during CCNA when I studied up until I walked in.

If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself." -- Sun Tzu, "The Art of War"

I don't agree with not studying the day before / day of. I've always studied up until the point I got in the car. to drive there. Then recite in the car as I drive to the location. I take 20-40 pages of notes from the OCG. By the time I take the test I can almost write the entire 20 pages from memory. Especially when you have to memorize syntax or numerical values.

Yeah I tend to study the day before/of. It's more to keep things fresh in my mind - leisure study. If you have to FEVERISHLY study the day before/of, you're not ready - it's that simple. Take it from a guy who failed an exam three times in a row - don't take it if you don't feel ready.

I lightly review my notes the day before. Not much else.
