They skip too many steps for me.

I found the angle first and then used the angle to solve for my max x distance once the boom is touching A.

Hope this helps
Thanks so much Rod I agree it does skip some steps! This is one out of two problems I missed on the breadth practice exam consistently that just stumped me.

Starting this new thread for anyone who is interested in teaming up. After my second failed attempt I feel like I need a drastic change in strategy. My first attempt was 34/80. My recent second attempt was 44/80. First go around I took ITRE class and was convinced this was the way to go. I spent most of my time on my references and a couple of practice tests. That exam day was brutal and I knew I planned incorrectly. Second attempt I spent my entire focus on working problems and worked over 1200 +. That exam the recent Oct exam went way better in my mind and while I did improve I thought I did better than my diagnostics showed. So now it is a CBT and new approach all together. It would be great to team up with anyone interested and share ideas on strategies. One thing that comes to mind is how to better understand the diagnostics and those poor areas. I definitely have some weak areas I tried to work around and thought my strengths would make up for my weakness’s. Well that didn’t work. So for anyone interested let’s use every resource we have to get this done! That being said this forum is a great resource and perhaps something we can utilize better to our advantage. Who’s with me let’s get this done!!!
Great! I'm also looking for some guidelines for second attempt WRE/ ENV. Tried my first attempt in October 2021 and failed big time 36/80. I have lot of study materials and thought of self studying would be enough for first attempt but now thinking that it was a bad idea. Everyone who passed is suggesting to take the review course. Can anyone suggest which is the best review course for CBT? I'm inclined to School of PE but would like to hear if there are any other suggestions. Thanks!

I took EET for my 3rd attempt. I really like the way they explain things and the instructors are great. That being said I still failed but it was pretty close according to diagnostic report. Good luck!

Thanks, are you planning to take it again? Any strategy for retaking?
