College

Studying

You want to pass it the first time and you also want to score high on it. Save all your notes from college, take practice exams and use sample questions to help you prepare and study for your certification exam.

Certification Exam
Once you have finished graduate school you will need to plan to take your certification exam. You will need to find a testing location and the dates and times that are available. There are usually several to choose from and it is a good idea to either take it fresh out of school or after you have had enough time to study.
