I just took the practice exam and totally bombed it. I know that Ballast is notoriously hard but I was expecting at least 50% but got 46% Upon grading I felt I would score better than that. Tonight I will go over each question to figure out how i was wrong. In that way I suppose it was helpful to identify my misunderstandings. I test in 10 days so I suppose I need to hit the books hard until then.
Also, Ballast notes to give yourself 3 hours and 30 minutes to take the test. NCARB 5.0 handbook notes a 3 hour 30 minute appointment but 2 hours and 45 minutes to take the test so now I'm confused about the actual time limit. I took the practice exam in 2 hours so I suppose on test day I will use all that extra time to do a 3rd or 4th review.
