    My test for Part 1 is tomorrow. I've been using Gleim. Went back through everything and getting around 85% average. Anyone experienced enough with Gleim to know if those scores will get me close to Passing?

    Hi Janee,

    I can't speak for Gleim as I used Wiley to study and pass Part 1. I consistently had an average of 85-90% on MCQs (sets of 30) and passed Part 1 with a 400. I know it's not an apple-to-apple comparison, but I think you should be fine and have no issues with passing if you're getting a 85% average using Gleim since I know Gleim is known for having tough MCQs.

    I hope this helps!

    So if I got through the multiple choice section and was allowed to complete the essay section, does that mean I at least scored a 250? 🙄 it was harder than I expected.

    The exam is structured in such a way that if you can't get a min 50% there is no sense in comoleting the essay section. Hence they save you the trouble from not showing it. 

    The fact that you could see the essay part means at least 250 excluding the essay is confirmed.

    Congrats and best of luck !
