CWAP Notes

This is a collection of my notes that I'm taking while studying for the CWAP-402 exam. You might notice that I break things into smaller chunks. I've found this makes it easier to focus on a topic when taking the notes, and easier to find the note afterward as well.

Also, please note that some of these notes are taken quickly to get the information down. While others I might go into more "essay-format." It's purely on the topic, content, and my mood while reading that portion of the book.

Lastly, you may find little tidbits of humor thrown in here and there. Just because I'm studying doesn't mean I can't have fun! I always like looking back at my notes and seeing a funny (to me at least) note or line that I tossed in that I had forgotten about. It also sometimes helps me remember certain things.
