I just took my first 5.0 exam after passing CDS and PPP in 4.0, and failing SPD twice. I went into PA exam with the same mindset and strategy that I used to pass the other exams, go through all questions, answer them all even the ones your uncertain about. Review marked questions at the end.
I gave myself 2 hours to do 75 questions which only gave me a little less than 10 minutes left to review, took the 15 min break, and then 1 hour for case studies. I couldn't really answer with confidence as the clock was running out pretty quickly!
Let me just say that this exam has been the worst if we compare the results to my other failed attempts. I think my strategy needs to change!
What strategies has worked for this exam? Do you do case studies first to gauge your time? Do you go in knowing that all questions will not get answered and take your time with the questions you know the answers to?
I appreciate any feedback!
