My exam experience Part 1

    It was horrible. I felt good going in but got out of the testing center feeling defeated. The essay questions were so overwhelming that I ran out of time, one of the questions I didn't get to answer. The Gleim exam rehearsal MCQs that I took was way too easy compared to the actual exam in my opinion. At this point, I am glad I got at least 50% correct on the MCQ , so I just pray that I don't have to go thru the exam again and crossing my fingers that I passed.

    I also attempted Part 2 yesterday. ​It was really difficult​​​​​. Essay question were really difficult. But it was a great experience and at least understood that I need to manage my time wisely. Hope the results will be positive. As far as MCQs are concerned, I also faced the same issue. I was solving the tests of Wiley. Next time need to be more cautious about the level of difficulty we actually gonna face in exam.

    Best wishes for your results.

    I also took part 1 this week and I used Gleim to prepare. The MCQs definitely seemed harder than the practice questions I had been taking with Gleim and I did not feel confident about them. I thought the essay was easier than I expected, but I had low expectations.

    Your experience, studying and testing, sounds nearly identical to my first attempt.  After studying this go-around, I realize how much I didn't really study the first time I took it.  My exam for Part 1 is on Sat at 12:30CST.  I've been studying around 8 hrs a day for the last 6 weeks, quizzes, tests, etc.  If I don't pass this time, I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

    Oh my..reading your experiences I am really scared about taking Part 2. I just recently took part 1 and now waiting for the result. My experience is quite the opposite. The test exams in HOCK International is way more difficult that the real exam. Probably you guys can consider changing review materials? Or maybe we just need to really prepare and spend time.

    Hi.. I took my exam on Part 2 on the 28-10-2020; Unfortunately the essay window did not open. Even I used the Gleim. Was a bit confident I made 50% of the MCQ but ended up with the negative screen. The practice exams and other stuffs i did well. Will IMA send a feedback of the exam attended and advice on what area we need focus on the next time. Anyways will wait for the marks. Will try Hock and Gleim both the next time.
