This certification has not been out for very long.
There are only about 1000 PCIP's in the world.
A couple things that I'm used to finding for exam prep are not evident with this new certification:
1) I can't seem to find a clear detailed scope of what material the exam will cover. I've extracted some objectives from a training class and am assuming that this will be fairly accurate. Rumor is that you need a 75% passing grade.
2) Since this is still pretty new, there are not a lot of posts/emails to be found on experiences with the exam.
3) I have not been able to locate any practice exams or sample questions. I will try to create some myself within this blog.
4) I have been seeing cases where expert opinion regarding PCI varies according to who you talk to. Many items appear to be open to interpretation. This is not really what you want going into a multiple choice exam.
Not bitchin' / Just sayin'
Minor issues (I hope). We will forge ahead.
