In a previous post I wrote about the tasks I undertook to refresh my Labview skills before I passed the CLD-R exam. My first post on this topic discussed NI seminar materials. Now I want to write about something else I focused on:
Review online help info
NI publishes a list of about a dozen items the test covers. Of those, I found the following to be worth my time reviewing: Events, error handling, timing, recursion, reentrancy, shared variables, and file IO. So I went into NI's online help, bookmarked the pages relevant to that topic, and then reviewed it in detail.
For example, for timing I looked at these items:
- Timed loops
- Configuring timed loops
- Timed loops are slower
- Timing structure characteristics
- Timed sequences
- Software timing vs. execution timing
I also went through the examples I could find online as well as the example finder in LV itself. There was quite a bit of information available.
I'll write one more post on this topic of CLD-R review, probably in another week. Then I'll hopefully get more current with my posts again.
