I've taken the PCM exam twice now and did not pass either time. What else should I be doing? I used AHPP, ballast books (review book, practice questions, mock exam), ARE handbook demo exams, contracts.
What other exams have you passed? If you could send me your score report, that'd be helpful.
PcM is a difficult exam focused on firm management and contracts - things most interns are not involved with. The pass rate is about 50%.
Maybe skip it for now, and study for another exam?
Hope this helps. Keep studying!

I completely agree with the previous comments! I’ve taken PCM twice and I’ve been through the whole AHPP, Black Spectacles and several on line practice tests! Completely disheartening putting all this effort to get same results! Also, NCARB should respectfully consider the platform provided for testing. I’ve taken it in a facility and had systems issues, switch to doing in remote and even in my brand new laptop, system was slow and took forever for highlights and crossing out lines. Disappointed.
I compiled my study recommendations for th exam in a YouTube video here. Check it out! https://youtu.be/OTme7fsJBhw
