This Test is Great

I just passed the NCSF exam with a 77%. I went in thinking I would probably not pass due to all the talk of it's difficult nature, but it turns out all my preparation paid off.
I didn't get any of the official NCSF material since I've been studying the subject for nearly 10 years. However, my study has been from a practical, more straight forward standpoint.
This is where the Exam Prep Course from this site came in in a very helpful way. Had in not been for the prep I would have not been anywhere close to prepared for the technical nature of the exam. I'm very grateful for this prep course as it shed a lot of light on the nature of the exam.
Over all the test is difficult but fair. The questions are designed to make sure you know your stuff, and contrary to some things I've read, doesn't seem to be purposely written to dupe you. I would definitely recommend this program and am very happy to now be a NCSF CPT. I would also suggest giving the exam prep course a shot. It's not a "magic bullet" by any means, but it will show you exactly what areas you are lagging in so you can optimize your study time.
