    Default I am so messed up....

    I am so frustrated right now... Just had to vent..

    I have been studying my ass off for 1.5 months for a certification exam... today I finished studying a couple of books for the same course..
    now when i do the practice tests, I am still scoring pretty bad.. and looks like i better go back to studies again instead of getting more frustrated... it is so damn frustrating...

    Most people I talked to, studied around 2 months for this exam.. seems reasonable.. but doesn't look like i will be ready within that time...

    problem is.. I thought i was ready.. anyway.. i just had to vent.. I am so frustrated..

    I'm sorry! I'm sure if you keep studying, you'll get it in no time!! I know it's frustrating, but just don't give up.

    Good luck! Studying can be so frustrating. I've heard that if you eat something (like an apple or an orange, not junk food) while studying it helps you remember stuff. Just remember to give yourself reasonable breaks (like an hour of studying, 5-10 min break, hour of studying, etc.)- you don't want to overwhelm yourself.

    Lots of water... water and studying go hand in hand!!

    And DON"T OVER STUDY!!! You can actually do more harm than good. If you're starting to run your answers together... stop, take a brisk walk.

    Find out what kind of learner you are, this might help....
    What kind of learner am I? this link will get you to the quiz and read up on learning styles.

    Good luck!

    Studying can be difficult sometimes. Especially if you have to take in enormous amounts of information. Studying strategies can make all the difference though, like BagDiva said. It can also have a lot to do with the test style. Multiple choice has always been easier for me because I'm good with word recognition. Essay questions are okay, but if they require too long of an answer I have a hard time spitting it all out. LOL! What kinds of questions are on the test?

    thanks guys... yes i know i am rushing to it... cuz i want to get the cert ASAP..
    anyway.. you know guys.. i am much better at it than what i was when i started it...
    prob is.. i am not setting up any labs.. just working with simulations... there r people who setup whole labs before they give the exam.. :| I just don't want to spend too much money just for frst exam.. may be will do that for next ones..
    anyhow.. so i read this book once.. (680 pages..) then studied on some training videos.. (2 weeks) then went on to another training videos.,.. (another 2 weeks) and right now starting with the first book over again.. problem is.. these guys don't include the whole syllabus in one book... and we end up studying few to make sure we get it all.. (and sometimes end up confused)

    anyways... thanks for the kind words... I am trying to keep my calm.. will not give up...

    Oh, so they set things up for you and you have to do the "right" stuff? Hehe... sorta reminds me of zoo lab. Well, not really related, but we did have to look at something during the lab practical and name it's phyla or family or whatever the professor was asking for. Yep, looking at a bug and wondering what group it belongs to... good times, good times.

    never give up on what you want to ahieve
    all the failure doesnt mean you cant be succeeded, it just means you will take longer which also enable you to prepare yourself to the fullest when you take it again

    GOOD LUCK

    I studied for the LSAT for two years ... I did pretty bad on the practice exams, had to take the test twice, but the second time I scored seven points higher than the first time. Just patient with yourself and try not to waste your energy being frustrated.
    If love is the answer, what is the question?
