The next phase of your project will be the practice phase. During this phase you’ll use the practice tests and exams to sharpen your knowledge and prepare to pass the exam. Your deliverables for this phase will be scores of 85% or better on the practice exams. This is the phase you should time to end one to two days before your exam date.
Reaching a peak a few days ahead of schedule won’t be a problem for you if you take some time immediately before the exam to refresh your memory – try taking the exams over again until you achieve your 85% pass rate. This shouldn’t take more than a few hours with the "crib” sheets accompanying each exam. These sheets contain explanations for most questions on the exam.
