Macbeth the Usurper

One Mac Certification

I did my first Mac cert test. Got a 76 out of 75. That's a PASS. Yay!!!

What I needed to know better:
- Share Points (and who can see them in what circumstances)
- Correct Terms for the main utilites
- Printing

What helped:
- Living with a Mac for 9 months. Invaluable.
- All that UNIX and networking stuff that I know.

Advice to test takers:
- List all topics, from strongest to weakest
- Focus on your weaknesses
- Get Apple's list of things you need to know. Be able to answer them all from memory.
- Find multiple ways to review material, not just reading
- Don't try to learn it all at once.

Jury Duty

I thought that I had jury duty on Friday. I was wrong. That was TODAY! Crud. Fortunately, I could reschedule after I missed it. I really had to take that Apple test, which I moved to avoid the wrong jury duty date. Doh!

Anyhow, possible jury duty on June 9, this Monday. Again.
