Is this an open book test? You put some time into this post much appreciated. I can answer most questions But on a few of them I would probably get wrong. Anyways 90% would be a good goal to shoot for, just go through the book and find the answers one by one, is there a particular question you are having problems with or are you going to ace it?

no books or phones allowed in the class on test days , for the most part I have got it down Out of the 200 questions I know I can get 90% of them . The final is actually every test we took the past 8 weeks so I have a great study guide at least.It also helps I corrected any missed answer so I have the right ones on every test. Happy to share was hoping not to bore you all .

The bottom line in this field is on the job training. As with anything in life though the book smarts will catch up to you over time. Then you can apply it as you mature. It does take hands on experience to really sink it in.
