I scheduled my exam before I was prepared to take it. I was trying to get it in before Jan 1 and the slots were filling. When I scheduled, I assumed the additional week of study would get me to answering questions at +70% correctly and consistently. I wasn't quite there on test day. I was hoping that the extra adrenaline at test time would pull me through but I was not optimistic. After 100 questions, I felt like I might have a chance. By completion time, however, I felt like only a miracle would give me a passing score and, in fact, I failed. Two up and three down. Is it just me or do the questions get progressively harder on the actual test?

BTW- I felt the questions were very similar to the Prepcast Exam Simulator.
