  • Hi Slay, do you think it's important that your practice exam is first attempted in an exam-like setting? 

    This was my plan, but I don't want to take it too soon before the exam, struggle, and not give you guys enough time to answer questions (via email) about specific problems.

    From what I understand, your exam is excellent and although it may be harder than the PE, it's effective at driving home core concepts.  With that said, maybe it isn't so bad to start on it early to make sure I give each problem a shot.  Then after that first run through, I can re-take it in a more timed setting.

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    Excellent reply, this is exactly what I wanted to hear.  You hit the nail on the head with regards to approaching it in an exam setting, but only 2+ weeks ahead of time after adequate preparation. 

    The reason I asked in the first place is because a) good practice exams are hard to come by, b) re-working 80 problems in 8 hrs that you've done before (e.g., NCEES) doesn't seem like a true "simulation" of the exam, and c) blocking off 8 hours on a weekend can be tricky.

    Long story short, I am looking forward to purchasing your practice exam within the next week.

    Thanks, Slay!
