What Customers Are Saying: “It was more in-depth and challengingthan I'd heard and I felt like I'd accomplished a great deal by taking it.” “The exam was more rigorous and difficult than I expected, which is a good thing. Passing the exam should mean something, and a tough exam ensures that.” “After completing the exam I felt as though I had accomplished something rather difficult.” “As it was not an easy exam to pass it shows that the standard of qualification will be upheld.” “Very difficult, which is awesome.” “this was a hard exam, and shows that this certificate will retain its ability to ensure quality recipients.” “It was a well structured exam and I felt proud to pass it as it was not easy.” “It was harderthan I expected. I like that though. It means not everyone can attain the certification without really knowing the material.” “It was very challenging, and therefore rewarding when I passed it.” “Harder questions than expected.
