  7. Excellent information. I thought of typing this info manually to excel
    spread sheet. But you gave all this info ready.

    Here is the thing I did with this Data.

    Copy all the info to excel sheet
    Apply filters so that it to understand ITTOs.

    It makes wonders. Just day or two is enough to understand the logic behind all ITTOs

    Thanks

  8. Ram,

    I am trying to somehow understand/memorize the ITTOs but they are the main bottleneck in completing the practice questions with a pass mark. Is there a 'trick' or a special process to do them ? I plan to take the exam next month and getting nervous that my scores are not coming well.

    Thank you.

    Thanks a lot
