Recommended pre-cert reading?

Hey folks,

From what I understand there's a list of CFJ articles that are highly recommended pre-certification reading. Any chance someone has this list?

Thanks

David-

When you have paid for the Level I Cert, they send you the syllabus (basically a table of contents listing articles in various CFJs) and ALL of the Journals (pdf versions) approximately 2 weeks prior to the Cert date.

However, I am not sure if they are going to do it that way anymore since the Journal has taken a new life with all articles being available online for subscribers.

haha, eventually I'll get through all the articles. And I've read SS. Still no Zone books though.

Right now I just want to know which articles to focus on for the cert.

I did the cert a long time ago. I would be very interested in a current list.

Just plow through as many of the journals as possible. You can skip the parkour and peripheral subjects. Oh, and make sure to read the sections on programming. Forget which journal it is, but understanding the programming model is huge.
