  2. Review the exam guide
    Exam guides provide the blueprint for developing exam questions and offer guidance to candidates studying for the exam. We´d encourage you to be prepared to answer questions on any topic in the exam guide, but it's not guaranteed that every topic within an exam guide will be assessed.

    Taking a look at the sample questions on each certification page will help to familiarize you with the format of exam questions and example content that may be covered.
