Also remember guys, this test is all relative. If it is difficult for everyone, then they will have to make an adjustment so the pass rate is still what it had been. It might take a cycle or two for it to adjust so one needs to be prepared to take this test for several times. Eventually things should even out. I know the big thing right now is NCEES provided reference material as opposed to you could take whatever you wanted. When I took test, I like many others took boat load of books. They did not help me answer the questions where I really needed help. The stuff that you are supposed to know anyway and is well defined such as per unit system, power factor if you know those topics well, then odds of your passing goes up. There are some open ended areas such as instrument transformer, or ground testing, industrial experience can help there. Put in the work as if you want to ace it and then it is going to be what it is going to be. There is very high chance that if you put a required efforts then you will pass. You have to, because it is not a voodu science.
