    first piece of advice would be not to rush it!

    take plenty, plenty of time!

    You will get the materials in an email, as soon as you get them download them and read them through. You will have about a week to complete both parts of the exam. If you pass the first part they will tell you straight away, but the second part takes a long time. So get working on the materials right awy, because you want to leave enough time to study them so that you pass Part 1, and hav enough time to work through Part 2.

    On Part 1 I read through the Guidelines three times, and then for each question I searched through them until I was sure of the right answer, Don't just guess without checking the guidelines, because sometimes the answer that you might expect isn't the one in the guidelines.

    On the second part you can save your answers and come back to them later. You have to complete 270 ratings. What I did was to do the first 50, saving them rather than submitting them, to give me a feel for it. Then I went back over them and submitted the ones I was confident about. Then I worked through all the others, submitting the ones I felt confident about and saving the ones I wasn't sure on. Then I wnet over those ones again more carefully.

    Hope this helps, good luck on the exam

    Thanks for you replies. Is one of the exams written? Also do you mean you have a week once you start the exam or a week from when you get the email? If so is best to wait until you have the time to study and comlpete or can you study up 1st and the start the exam? Thanks again.
