Study Tools

ExamGear provides you with several learning tools to help prepare you for the actual certification exam.

Effective Learning Environment

The ExamGear Special Edition interface provides a learning environment that not only tests you through the computer, but also teaches the material you need to know to pass the certification exam. Each question comes with a detailed explanation of the correct answer and provides reasons why the other options were incorrect. This information helps to reinforce the knowledge you have already and also provides practical information you can use on the job.

Automatic Progress Tracking

ExamGear Special Edition automatically tracks your progress as you work through the test questions. From the Item Review tab (discussed in detail later in this appendix), you can see at a glance how well you are scoring by objective, by module, or on a question-by-question basis (see Figure A.1). You can also configure ExamGear to drill you on the skills you need to work on most.
