CS Preparation & Tasting Groups New Orleans

Hello all! 

I just took my intro course and exam this past weekend in Houston, and am looking to start down the road towards the CS exam soon. I’m looking for any information or tips on what/how to study for this, what the format is, and also looking for any tasting groups or tasting events/classes in New Orleans that would be beneficial to this process and contribute to my overall knowledge. 

Thanks!
