I took the prep course from a competitor, but was very disatisfied with the sample exam questions and clarificaItions. I learned of the Prepcast simulator and joined right away. The questions, answers, and explanations really hit home with me. I have been a project manager for over 20 years. I spent a great deal of time in the simulator to understand how some of the new ideas about project management work with what I already know and do.

I burned through about 1500 "ish" on the test questions. I am a little slow at reading, so time was always critical for me. I always took timed tests. I found a great pattern for me was to take small tests of 40 questions and then immediately do a review and then repeat.

As my test time grew close, I took 2 practice exams. scored 81% and 82%. From the graph print out on my exam review, it looks like I got at least that on the exam. All three areas were AT.

I finished the exam with about 30 minutes to spare. I plowed through the exam without any breaks. I took the exam at a test center, and thought the breaks would be more disruptive than they were worth.

Good luck everyone!!
