Passed in CA! First timer. Took the testmasters course with a poor structures/construction instructor
AM: felt like a lot of questions were tailored towards structural and construction. But they were still doable. I used my CERM quite a bit. TBH, I thought I got a good 25/40 questions correct. I probably scored right around 26-32 out of 40. However, I had a bad feeling that if the AM was this hard, that I'd fail.
PM: definitely a ton of look up questions. (Maybe 1/4th?) Mark Ingram from testmasters emphasized on working a lot of these problems during the class. And I practiced these with HCM, Greenbook, mutcd, roadside design guide, had a few scanned sheets from Pedestrian facilities book, and HSM. Felt that I scored a good 29-33 out of 40 in this section.
At the end, i was cautiously optimistic. i was probably right around 55-65 out of 80. Wish i was in a Texas so I could find out what I got! But let's assume 100%
