Lotus highly recommends using a variety of resources to prepare for certification exams. In all cases, you must start with the exam competencies to determine which tasks will be covered on the exams. Equally as important, actual hands-on experience is required. From there, we recommend that you choose from the following preparation options.
During your preparation, it is important that you review the exam competencies periodically to make sure that all of the material in the exam competencies is covered in your choice of preparation methods. It should be noted that there is not a one-to-one correspondence between these preparation methods and the exam.
Exam Objectives (Required)
Review the exam competencies to see the complete listing of possible topics for the exam. Use this as your checklist to determine your strengths and those areas where you will need to focus more attention in your studies and preparation. This information also includes recommend prerequisite skills and knowledge.
Actual hands-on experience is a critical component in preparing for the exam. Direct application of the skills learned cannot be substituted by any one other resource listed here. You must spend time using the product and applying the skills learned. The exam is looking to measure how well you know how to perform tasks, not how well you memorize features and functions.
