  • Question #1: Good to know the exam challenged your theoretical understanding… Are you now able to put it into practice in the real world?
  • Question #2: Everyone you thanked is only a catalyst. You are the real driver of your progression. Do you have a roadmap to get there or you just stopped with the certification?
