    Hi ManuuRaghuu,

    How is it going regarding the certification preparation?. Or did u finish up with the exam already?.

    BTW,I had taken up a testing course last month but to my dismay it was not much helpful as they were so fast to finish up within a monthWitsend.Personally,i dont think a month preparation is enough for looking for a job:hide:.So i have decided to keep learning by myself and then take the certification exam or whatever.

    Please share your experience regarding the exam/exam preparation.:idea.Sorry for asking too much.
