    Congratulations on your CE pass and thank you for useful tips.

    Any advise on time management in the test?

    I would leave at least 45mins to an hour for the Case studies. I ran out of time on my last question. 

    Try taking several Practice Exams in order to manage your time wisely between the multiple choice questions and the Case Studies. 

    PPI Learning Hub provides you with some good, yet complicated Case studies for the CE Exam. These Case Studies will help you think critically in order to answer the questions accordingly. 

    I took the 2nd PPI Learning Hub CE Practice Exam 2 days before my scheduled appointment, and I treated it like the real deal, even though PPI has not adjusted the questions from 95 to 75. 

    I also recommend you Flag any questions you may be unsure of and leave them to the end, but be sure to finalize your answers before you take a scheduled break, otherwise they will be locked and you will not be able to access them. You may realize that questions further down the exam might help you with some of the earlier questions you had flagged. 


    Good luck!

    Hi Luis,

    Great job on passing! I am currently studying for this exam for the first time. What did you do differently between taking it the first time and second time around that you think helped you pass it?

    Thank you for the study tips! These are very valuable!

    Congrats on passing CE - I just failed it.  After preparing for it for the last month, I was surprised (but somewhat heartened) to see your comment about Black Spectacles.  I have always felt that their material was lacking.  Their videos are more or less 30,000' overviews while the ARE-CE exam itself is more like a tree-top level, 'avoid the powerlines', 400 mph engine failure in the making.  I will take your suggestions above - thanks.

    Congrats on the pass!

    If anyone else is looking for free resources on what to study and general studying tips, I made a YouTube video explaining everything I did in order to pass the exam in 1 month. Check it out here: https://youtu.be/-qPZkheCijE 

    Happy Studying!

    Ps. I made a video of study tips for each of the ARE 5.0 exams. Check them out on my channel.
