Introduction I truly believe there is a not-so-exact science behind taking exams. In this post I’m going to share with you the tips and strategies I use to ensure maximum success when taking multiple-choice exams. Note: This post is NOT about minimising study effort, it is about maximising effectiveness on the day of the exam. Every good (400+) score I have achieved has a foundation of hard work and sacrifice attached to it.

Firstly, let me get something off my chest… My name is Christopher Lewis and I am a Certification Addict. It has been approximately 2 months since my last exam and over the last 15 years I have gained multiple associate, professional and advanced level certifications in Citrix, Microsoft and VMware products. Phew… that feels much better now that the elephant in the room has been addressed. On a more serious note, I feel certifications are a necessary evil in the industry that I have chosen to work in and many of the IT certifications are a good indication of someone’s capability in a topic or technology.

Firstly, let me just say I realise the VMware Certified Advance Professional 6 - Data Center Virtualization Design is currently in BETA and I will be taking this exam as well.
