    Here are the tips from @CloudGod on preparing for the Solace Certified Event Driven Architecture Practitioner exam. Many thanks @CloudGod !

    @manish pretty much summed it up.
    The exam is accessible if you look into those topics. If you're trying the exam, you're already into EDAs so it should come as second nature.
    Don't worry about the time to complete. You have more than enough. Read things through 3 or 4 times, as some questions have nuances.
    Even if you fail the exam, you have a couple more attempts. But you won't fail.

    As Nike used to state... Just do it!

    My preparation path is like this. Give the test -> Go through the course -> Then attempt the test again.
    I have first given the test to understand the type of questions and I failed as expected but with 66%. While giving the test, you will have plenty of time to think and understand the scenario given. Even if you fail, we shouldn't be worried as we have couple more attempts. Then I have gone through the course, So now I know which topic I should be more keen in learning. Then I gave my second attempt of the test and I cleared it. Focus more on the Design patterns and Micro services chapters in the course.
