VMCE-ADO Practice Exam
Just wanted to say thank you for your web site Bart. I passed my VMCE ADO exam on Monday and it helped a lot.
As for advice, I would say this. The exam is tough but not impossible. You must learn all the material,that goes without saying but also be prepared to calmly think things through. This might be obvious but I have done a lot of IT exams where as long a you memorized the material more or less it was smooth going from there. For this exam you will have to know the material well, but then you will also have to be able to use it in complicated and not so clear circumstances. This is essentially emulating what you will get in the real world, where you might have multiple right designs but only one is the best. At least that was the impression that I got (I did celebrate quite ferociously after passing so things are a little fuzzy now
Don't know if that helps
On the funny side at the end of the exam my head was moving fast and I pressed the end button, i.e. the ominous "are you certain you really really want to press finish?????" and then took my glasses off to rub my eyes, the result popped up and I could not make out the number or pass and fail for a few terrifying moments until I realized I had taken my glasses off
. Happy ending but it shows one thing the exam missed, i.e. architects should not take off their glasses!!!!
