      This forums is awesome. Thanks everyone!

      Can you please share some experience on tips and tricks helpful for the test day. I am particularly interested in how should we approach time management. On what type of questions will we suffer most? Which area of the test will be mostly formula and general knowledge related and which will test for deep understanding.

      Too many useful posts to list @NaidenB‌ , but there’s an excellent section in the ‘view all articles” section called “Exam Day Advice” with lots of tips/tricks on what to expect on exam day!

      @NaidenB‌ – I think it’s important to know that you’ve 90 seconds per question. And you should stick to that no matter HOW HARD the question. When 90 seconds is up, pick the best answer, circle that question to remind yourself to come back to it if you’ve time, and move on to the next question.

      Usually well prepared candidates would not have an issue with this, but I find this is the most important thing new candidates miss out during the exams.
