Thank you so much for the valuable information that you have provided here... I truly appreciate it!! I intend to take up CSTE early next year (2009) any kind of tips for preparation would be much appreciated!! Also, do you have any idea where I would find the recent Q papers? 2007/2008? I see a lot of tutorials and study guides (from test king, brain dump) that can be bought online... Do you think they would be of any help? Any idea if they contain Q papers??
