In this tip, let us discuss another key to certification success that many students might not pause to think about. Before you dive into a new professional certification pursuit, you might want to take some time and really plan the resources that you are going to use. This includes deciding on the right mix for you. For example, I am a big reader, so when I am planning a new certification journey, I like to load up on texts that cover the material.
For others, this might not be a big part of the plan at all. Many are simply “viewers”, they master the certification material by watching CBT Nugget videos on the topics many times over. They might really dislike trying to learn from text reading. Videos are their key.
Everyone is different. Some really enjoy the pursuit by mixing it up. Reading about a topic for an hour or so. Watching the 20 minute Nugget on the topic, and then labbing it up to practice. You have to really self examine and determine just what the right mix is for you. This is so important because you want to enjoy the study process as much as possible. Enjoying it and learning with a passion makes the mastery process so much more effective and efficient.
So, survey the mix of materials that are available to you, and plan your attack today.
