    Following a balanced study diet
    By Natalie McGregory, staff writer

    Look at the exam topic from several perspectives. Combine different study methods while preparing for your exam. Attend training or a hands-on lab, use a book and download the exam objectives.

    Understand the exam objectives. Review the objectives and know the emphasis (percentage) for each exam domain. You can download objectives for all CompTIA certification exams. Practice test questions are also available.

    Know your learning preferences and select study methods suited to them. Maybe you learn faster by studying alone with a book, or maybe you like the classroom setting and having an instructor. Whichever method you choose for your primary study technique, make sure its the method that works best with your learning style.

    Other ways to ensure success:

    Study with approved study materials and trainers. CompTIA approves quality courseware and training facilities for its certification programs. To find authorized study materials, visit the CompTIA Authorized Quality Curriculum (CAQC) Web site, or visit the CompTIA Learning Alliance (CLA) site to search approved training facilities.

    Make time to study. Though it seems obvious, many people do not take the time to study. Learning the material and mastering the objectives are essential in passing an exam. Set aside a minimum amount of study time everyday and stick to it.

    Get a full night of sleep. Staying up the night before and cramming for the exam is not a good idea. Not only will your brain be overwhelmed with information, you will also be tired and it might be hard to concentrate during the exam.

    Retaking an exam? If you are retaking an exam, you already have a valuable study tool: your exam score report. Your CompTIA exam score report includes a list of specific subject areas identified as incorrectly marked areas.

    Use your score report to identify the areas you had trouble with on the test. This will help you tailor your studying, and you can spend more time on the topics that you struggled with on the exam. Another good way to do this is to compare the objectives you downloaded with the score report.

    If you have trouble deciphering your score report, show it to your instructor or a skilled friend. They may see a pattern, or have other study suggestions for you.
