Hi Mark,

This looks like a nice tool, maybe you could post a little bit explaining to the community the usefulness of this tool versus perusing each of the PDF's separately.  That way, new candidates could get an idea of how this could help them...

Hey Jon.  Everyone has their own method for preparing for exams etc..  For me, this mind mapping tool doesn't replace the PDFs.  I actually disect each PDF and build maps for each one.  In my preparation, understanding the concepts and ideas comes first (reading PDFs) and then memorizing all the details comes next (memorizing all the details in the mind map).  The mind mapping software is basically flash cards on steroids.  For preparation purposes it allows you to create a dynamic, detailed outline of the PDFs that easily lends itself to future memorization.  When memorizing the details a user can say mark each node in green once he/she has learned the detail.  Ultimately all nodes are marked with green and you are ready to go for the examination.  I feel that if I can understand and memorize all the PDFs I'll have a really good shot at the exam (of course heavy doses of experience is needed).  I would also think these could be used as a reference tool as well, but currently I don't use them for that purpose.
