Not really sure how to post this question but here it goes. So through all my research I understand that Executing and M&C are the heavy players in the exam, where we want to get most proficient. Is there such measurement of the KA?
I have done 3 of the exams and I have scored 71%, 77%, and 74% respectively. I am reviewing all wrong answers as well as the ones where I guessed but got them right. I am worrying about not hitting 80% but I know stressing over time is my worse enemy. I rush then don't focus on the questions, and I know just one word can change what is being asked in the question.

I am using PMBOK and Rita's. Read Rita's twice, really took too long the first time so decided to give it a second go. My exam is next Friday so I'm 5 days away. Any recs or advise would be very much appreciated and I thank you all in advance.

Below are my stats so far for the first 3 exams in terms of Process or KA, % correct and their ranking and the proficiency

Initiating -BP, P, BP
Planning - BP, BP, BP
Executing - MP, BP, BP
M&C - - BP, MP, MP
Closing - BP, MP, P

My % for the Processes are:
Closing - 77% - 1
Monitoring & Controlling - 75% - 2
Planning - 74% - 3
Executing - 73% - 4
Initiating - 72% - 5

Knowledge Area Correct % Rank
Communications Management - 83% - 1
Human Resource Management - 81% - 2
Cost Management - 79% - 3
Procurement Management - 77% - 4
Risk Management - 77% - 5
Time Management - 71% - 6
Quality Management - 71% - 7
Integration Management - 71% - 8
Stakeholder Management - 68% - 9
Scope Management - 67% - 10
