After the test day I have collected a couple of impressions from who took the exam.
First of all, for the first time the test was computer based and apparently Pearson Vue experienced some technical problems during the test.
Some students reported that in some locations they couldn’t complete the second part of the test and were sent home.
Even if it was due to a technical issue, Pearson Vue (and Kaplan) should be extremely apologetic and embarrassed, but we will see what they have in mind for those affected.
Then, the exam.
The most common comment is “It’s really hard”.
We already knew it but hearing it from someone who just took the test reinforces the substance – you need to study, you need to be prepared, you need to be confident and quick.
Hence the lesson – study hard, and practice a lot!
