Hi Illa,

 

Glad to hear you were able to get everything scheduled.

 

I already posted the best preparation advice I can give you in the Cost of the LabVIEW Exam in India thread.

 

This week, if nothing else, watch the two CLAD webcasts and try the two sample exams you find in the CLAD e-kit.

Preparation webcasts and try the 2 Sample exams

 

Best of Luck!

Another couple things to add. I posted this comment a little while ago on the difficulty of the exam: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Do-I-need-Core-3-to-do-CLAD-exam/m-p/1402686#M546312
"Also be aware, I've spoken to quite a few CLAD exam takers in the last year and they all agree that the current CLAD exams are much harder and trickier than the sample exams here on ni.com. One taker for instance missed only one question the first time he took the sample CLAD exam but failed the actual exam by a couple questions. So make sure you're overprepared!"
Someone on the NI community made a pretty comprehensive list of preparation materials here:
Additionally, quite often we work with preparing people for the CLAD exam so I made a video examining a very common type of CLAD question:
You can take a look at the notes there which have a few more links to CLAD preparation resources. I'll include this one where someone on the NI community made a pretty comprehensive list of preparation materials:
Good luck!

You might also search for and look at the CLD-R (recertification) exam samples. I'm pretty sure they are questions of a similar style to the CLAD, so the knowledge might help. Good luck, read every question carefully, answer the ones you can easily, with assurance, first, then go back to look at the ones that aren't as obvious.

Hi llla,

At first congrats.

It normally takes 4 to 5 weeks. The result will be mailed to your email address by ni certification with logo and softcopy of your certificate.

For the CLAD you should find out imediately. I did when I took the exam at Pearson VUE. All certified indivuduals should be listed here.

Well, Steve and I are in the USA,  other geographical areas do take some time.

 

The big question is, "how do you feel you did?"

 

Right next to that question in importance (and one i would love to hear you answer)-----What were you unsure of durring the exam?  That! would help us to focus the next poster to this board.
