    Daniel, congrats on the pass...I am getting through the AHPP and starting on the contracts soon and hope to be ready for this exam next month, but my interest and question to you would be related to the PPI material, especially the practice exams and problems...do you feel they are worth the investment? I have heard so many mixed reviews about the problems being riddled with mistakes and jumbled material merely used from the 4.0 materials, that I was thinking of passing on them. Do you feel that it helped you get the overall feel of the exam down and prepped you to pass this exam?

    Daniel,

    Congrats on the pass. I got the opposite results and I also got the AHPP book a day before my exam. I have PPI study guide and practice exam, but I did not get the practice problems. does the practice problem from PPI have similar problems as the exam?

    thanks in advance

    Lorenzo - first off, nice avatar. Re: the PPI books - my company buys them, we have a few sets for interns. I have the 4.0 but decided to just use the newer 5.0 since it was already reorganized. I think the shift from 4 to 5 is maybe too wild to try and sift thru the books and read the appropriate material. I know they are pricey, but it's all 6 exams in one set of books, so you can't cherry pick one or another. I think it's worth it to get familiar with the exam material, though. Honestly, I mainly used the practice questions and exam books. You can get the reading material from other sources if you want to save and not buy the study guide. Does that answer your question?

    Jeremiah - I think I answered you above. The questions are formatted almost identically, so I think it is fantastic practice for the exam. The problems and exam are similar, but if you want double the questions I think the variety is worth it.

    Daniel, thanks for the info, think it helps. I have made the switch to 5.0, and have almost all of the materials, study guides and practice exams for 4.0 from starting this process quite a few years back, didn't finish, the running clock expired and now starting from scratch with a load of useless 4.0 material lol...Did you or anyone you might know use any 4.0 practice exams towards 5.0 and if so, which ones are geared towards PcM? Or, as you said since there is so much material and things have shifted so much, I think that I should just buy the 5.0 practice exam book given its just one book and you felt it was helpful. I appreciate you posting and yes, go Steelers!

    LOL, thanks Ryan...lets hope that Luck can keep that shoulder healthy, he hurt me a bit on my fantasy football team last year but I think he can be one of the greats with an O line that can keep him upright...going to be tough on Sundays to stay away from watching while studying and I may have to forgo my fantasy league this year! Fantasy football is like a second job lol! Glad that these posts and boards are up to make the process a bit enjoyable and the feedback from everyone has helped thus far.
