    when you go in the testing room, I'm pretty sure you're gonna have a paper and pencil. As soon as you sit down, Jot down as many things as you need to remember for the test. I did that when taking the A+. I jotted down all the IRQ's as fast as I could so I wouldn't forget them. heh.

    OK here's a tip.

    tip no 1.

    remember all those DOS commands for mapping drives. and get the syntax right in your mind.

    tip no 2.

    get to know login scripts they will be invaluable.

    tip no 3.

    remember all the NLMs you had to use in the course (assuming you took it)

    Tip no 4.

    If you have a spare PC, build it as a netware 5 server, and play with it, create accounts, mess about with login scripts, set policies, and generally have a good play. Also play with the remote management console, and the web services functionality

    Tip No 5.

    Relax and have fun, the exam isn't that hard, if you have a year or so's experience with NW 4 or 5 you'll walk it. (also unless things have changed in the last year it's not adaptive)

    but most importantly .....

    Don't be intimidated by the little sod that does the whole exam in about 5 minutes, grins at you, cracks his knuckles, and saunters off. (I wanted to murder that guy)

    Good luck, and let us know how you got on.

    Regards
