Editor's Comment: Despite the revisions to this exam, the best practices for taking the exam have not changed. Please remember to review all parts of the exam before starting any part, and to print out all exam questions and then use that as a 'study guide' comparing exam questions to the course study materials.
I must admit, the exam changes have been issued much sooner than I was expecting (by at least a month), so I don't know if that is a 'good sign' of 'bad'. Again my suggestion remains the same, "Don't rush to finish the exam, take adequate time to interpret each exam question, and study accordingly.
PS - and as Gary put it, "Good luck with the exam."
