I am averaging 84% and up for the sec + practice exam ,should I want tell I get into the 90% before taking the test?
Security + practice test
I am very sorry for this post missing my attention @zahir-humphries , my apologies. When it comes the practice tests it is more about how you use them that is important then if your score is past the 84% you have scored. First, an 84% is a tremendously good score. Here is the most important part:
How you achieved that score--
1- Was this a fresh bank of questions that you had not seen before? If so, we have seen that this is a score puts most exam candidates within the passing score on the exam.
2- Have you taken a practice test with the same questions multiple times, therefore memorizing the questions and answers. If so, then the practice exam has lost it's (the practice exam) effectiveness gauging your base knowledge and going for a 90% will not improve your chances of a passing score on the exam.
Remember that the main benefit of the practice exam is to gauge how you would do with the concepts given a fresh set of questions, there will always be some memorization and this just cannot be avoided (reason we study right!). However a sheer memorization of the question bank can give you a false sense of security with your base knowledge. With this in mind look at the results of the practice exam and use it to point you to the domain(s) you need to study a little more in.
