    Studying for 3V0-624.  Chime in if you are too

    Krenztor Enthusiast

      I passed 3V0-622 back in December and have been kicking back and relaxing since then.  I figured it is time to start focusing up for 3V0-624 now.  My goal is to take the test by the end of June.

       

      Below is the list of resources I've identified so far, most of which I took from the vhersey.com and davidstamen.com test reviews.

       

      There doesn't seem to be many reviews out there for this test but from what little sample size that does exist, it sounds like this test has a much higher pass rate than 3V0-622.  Both vhersey and davidstamen passed on their first attempt as did Scott Bowe on the Google+ forum.  Kevin Patterson on Google+ is the only case of someone failing and even he said he scored 276 despite not even studying for it.

       

      Hoping that I'm not the only one studying for this and others can start posting their resources and maybe even their experiences on taking the test.  BTW, I posted all of my notes that I took from 3V0-622 in a previous post on this board for anyone who wants them.  I'm guessing that those notes will be quite relevant to this test as well.
