How is the book organised

The technical content of the book is organised with one chapter per exam domain. There’s a chapter dedicated to preparing you to take the exam, and there’s a full practice exam with 60 questions just like the real exam.

Each technical chapter is organised as follows:

  • Technical content
  • Chapter summary
  • Exam essentials
  • Practice questions

The exam essentials is a recap of the major topics learned and can be used like flashcards when doing final revision and exam prep.

The practice questions test your mastery of the topics learned and are a similar style to the questions in the exam. However, they are not actual exam questions.

The chapter dedicated to preparing for, and taking the exam, explains exactly what it’s like taking the exam so you don’t have any surprises on the day.

The practice exam is a great opportunity for you to test your readiness for the real exam. Again, the questions are like the questions you’ll see in the exam, but they’re not actual exam questions.
