Preparing for SNIA's certification exam

What is the best way to prepare for the SNIA exams -- level 2 and level 3? I have a long list of recommended reading, but can you narrow down a list for me please?

1. Go to as many conferences as you can like Storage Decisions or Storage Networking World to bone up on product offerings, solutions and what's happening in the industry.

2. Read the books by: Marc Farley, W. Curtis Preston, Tom Clark, and Chris Beauchamp. (You can always read mine as well).

3. Go to the vendor Web sites and read the white papers on the subjects listed in the level 2 and level 3 exam criteria.

4. For in-depth learning, read the RFC pages on storage networking.

5. You can always attend the certification training available from Infinity I/O.
