The tips for studying for the various IT cert exams are basically the same as those for studying for any other standardized test. You get several prep books and study notes and spend a few hours per day looking at them during the weeks before your test, and take practice review tests so you can test your knowledge on the fly. We provide both types of study material to assist you in your exam prep efforts. Kindly refer to the list below, which is categorized by vendor:

About our products
In the early days of certification study preparation the focus was almost exclusively on cramming. We had a new medium for content that didn’t come with the same restrictions as the more traditional forms. We could present material as we felt was necessary and we could do it quicker. As the certification industry grew, so did the approach to gaining readership. In many cases, publishers had their focus shifted away from ultimate understanding of what was being covered, to producing word-for-word exact-match contents significantly motivated by increasing revenue. While it’s definitely easier to produce content by going that route, we don’t believe it’s the only way to conquer an exam. At the same time, we don’t believe readers need the 500-page megatext. As long as there’s a balance, we are happy.
Our mission at ExamREVIEW is to be a part of that balance. Our No-Frills ExamFOCUS study notes are written to be plain simple and straight forward. We don’t paginate material to increase page count, we break them apart across logical boundaries to improve readability. All fancy extra features are removed. We provide study notes that are concise and occupying less pages (so to save trees). And we want you to be up and ready as easy as possible!
We are the original developer of our NO FRILLS Exam prep products. Contents are developed entirely in-house, basing on our own research efforts. We believe that with the right preparation material and the right study approach, everyone can clear exams ethically.
Many of our products include practice review questions. Think of these as challenges presented to you so to assess your comprehension of the subject matters. The goal is to reinforce learning, to validate successful transference of knowledge and to identify areas of weakness that require remediation. The questions are NOT designed to “simulate” actual exam questions. If you are looking for “realistic” or actual questions, please shop somewhere else.

Sample practice review questions format:
Normally we use a page size of 8″ x 10″. In some newer titles with over 300 pages we use 7.5″ x 9.25″. Books sold through alternative order links are all 8.5″ x 11″. To allow easier reading, all of our study books are now printed with a font size of Garamond 16 or above. The actual size may slightly vary due to the paper size (and the page resizing process) used.
Some of our books have special large print version using Garamond 18/20. Please refer to the corresponding book descriptions for further information.
