Time for the third week of blogging about the things that I’m doing to study for the MCM exam. Last week wasn’t too spectacular – with the holidays and all I was pretty lazy on the studying. The formatting issues did get fixed, so if you see anything messed up send me a message. As I mentioned in the first post, I’ve already failed this exam once and am not really up for failing again.
The plan for this week is to continue my focus on reading. I have more tabs open than I had last week and did manage to read a lot. Also, I am hoping to get through all of the MCM videos again. Some I haven’t seen and others I want to listen to again.
Below will be all of the things of interest that I do while studying. Feel free to steal the ideas since that’s why they are there. Hopefully this will also provide some background on the depth of knowledge needed to complete this certification.
