Wiley/Sybex recently redid their website. One of our readers (and I), didn’t find it that intuitive how to register the book to gain access to the practice materials. Their tech support was excellent and now I know what to do!

Fill out the form. Note that you’ll need the book handy to answer one question about it. Don’t worry. The question will be something like “what is the caption of Figure 1.2” and not something that requires understanding the material

This book, has over 1000 practice questions. Each exam objective has a chapter designed to focus you in on key points and reinforce them. The two practice exams closely simulate the real exam even telling you how many answers are correct.
Both the paper and Kindle editions come with free access to Sybex’s online exam simulator. The publisher has redone the simulator since our previous editions were printed. I got to beta test the software and was overall happy with the new interface.
