People just do not like reading Marketing copy about products. Hey, I cannot blame them - I do not like it either! I love the Apple store because I can play with the device or the software before I buy, for example. But with all this said, it is pretty surprising when students show up in our 12 day and they have very little idea of what they are in for...

With this post, I am going to take you through the remarkable event in a simple "play by play" "no-Marketing" fashion. Notice that overall - it follows about 30% lecture and 70% Hands On with lectures biased towards passing strategies. Ideally the candidate should be 30 to 60 days away from passing the lab exam when they attend this course. Some students do attend it very early in their preparation, however, with the intent to retake all, or a portion, of the event.

I would love your questions in the comments area of course.
