I would request the instructors to advice me how to improve on my weak areas based on the scores .
Some of the questions in exam are really tough and need very deep knowledge or perhaps some job expereince . But I tried my level best to grasp as much as I could in 5-6 weeks . Gone through LA course videos twice . Made my own notes and flash cards . Done quizzes three times . Done the final mock exam thoroughly. Read some whitepapers too.
I would also take the opportunity to give some feedback to Tom on his course. The first half the course up until S3 is 5 star for me . But the second half just touches the topics briefly and its difficult to develop concepts . Its perhaps designed keeping in view the scope of exam. Difficult to judge but perhaps second half topics need to be addressed better in new course for Feb 2018 certification release .
Quizzes need to be made more challenging and should be refereshed regularly with new questions in my opinion.Most of the quiz questions are just taken word by word from orion papers slides ( which is good ) but it would be better if equal number of challenging questions are added in quizzes which have the real feel of the exam.
Having said all that , I would like to Thank LA and especially Tom for his well structured course and I am sure the next courses I am planning to take will be even better.
Thanks all !
