I had the 8th edition of the London book, but went ahead and bought the 10th edition, thinking that there were probably substantial changes. Of course there are SOME changes, but there is still a lot of information that seems like it wouldn't be very relevant on a certification test in this day and age. I'm just wondering how much I really need to study the chapters on darkroom, developing a negative, mounting a print, etc. I want to spend my time as efficiently as possible. For those of you who have already passed the test, what do you recommend?

Also, how did you study for the test? I read somewhere that there are flashcards, but I've never been able to find a place to purchase them. The recommended reading for the test is quite extensive (and expensive). Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
