I took my exam on Monday April 26, 2021. The whole preparation took me 4 months. Here are some tips:
-After reading each chapter, take a 20-30 question quiz in the simulation.
-Check your mistakes (and correct answers, very important) and read the explanations.
-Reread the parts in the chapter that you didn't understand as well.
-I used to average one chapter per week. At the same time, I read the book on agility (don't neglect it! 50% of the questions are about agile and hybrid). and I took one or two quizzes.
-I printed out Ricardo Vargas' diagram that summarizes and describes the connections between all the processes. I recommend you enlarge it and hang it on the wall in front of your desk.
-Once you have read all the chapters, reread the fourth chapter (integration) and do a first long simulation
-After finishing the first simulation, very important: take at least 3-4 hours to reread the answers and review the parts you didn't understand as much.
-The day before the exam, don't do anything, just relax.
-The simulation of Cornelius and his team is superbly well done and very close to the real exam. You are in good hands.

Good luck to all of you,
