Most people who would like to get an IT certification hate certification exams. There is so much to do and so much to memorize in a short period of time that it looks like an impossible task.
They start looking for the solutions and pay their hard-earned money for the list of questions and answers. There are a numerous number of tuition providers and some of them give strange guarantees. Like “guaranteed pass in 7 days or 14 days” or “full refund if you don’t pass”. The question that then comes into mind is how can they give such guarantees.
This is simple, they give guarantees because some of them compile a long list of possible questions and answers, which they consider, would come up in exams. Amazingly this works most of the time, for the majority of students. However, for some strange reason, it does not work out for a certain number of students. When these students find difficult questions in the list start to panic, they feel that they don’t know the subject well and are not ready for the exams. In some cases, they even start to forget what they already know about the subject.
While some providers give only a list of possible questions and answers, the expensive ones provide a full explanation for you to understand. It depends upon the depth of your pocket as well as your time limit. Most students get serious about them just a couple of weeks before the certification exam date. You might see them carrying around a thick certification book for a couple of months but eventually, they start looking for the tuition providers couple of weeks before the exam date.
Some ambitious students even wait until the last couple of days before losing confidence and then they start to look for the tuition providers. Certification exams are a cut above the traditional ones. With the traditional degree, you read, understand, learn, and write and it typically takes 2 years or more to complete, no experience necessary or required.
Certification is different, people who go for it are either working in their chosen field or have acquired experience previously working in the field. Certification is just an enhancement to prove that they know the subject inside out. The best part is something to put after your name such as MCSD, CCNP, and CLP, etc.
They have been working in their chosen field, so it is possible for them to study for a couple of weeks and get the certification. They know the subject inside out anyway, certification is just the technical part, and therefore they need a couple of weeks before they go for exams. Some employers require candidates with certifications but most of them still look for experienced ones instead of certified ones.
So if you are considering taking certification exams try to choose the tuition provider who gives you the most current and updated material. There is cutthroat competition in this market and the prices are going down day by day. Therefore, some tuition providers are not updating their material as often as they should and might give you the old stuff. They might look cheap but to tell you the truth the stuff is not even worth paying for.
If you are serious about certification then don’t make the mistake of leaving the search for the tuition provider to the last minute. It doesn’t matter how much knowledge you have about the subject, you would make your life a lot easier if you get in touch with the tuition provider as early as possible. After all, a well-rested mind and a lot of confidence are required to pass your certification exams. Plus, of course, the questions and answers list.
