    Agree with every word you say Alex Ruiz. I took PCM recently and I'm likely to fail. Found questions to be very lengthy, lot of play of words and all unnecessary information they provide on case studies. I didn't't had enough time. Similar experience with white board and calculator, when I took practice test at home they were fine. White board would not close automatically when I clicked next question but at real test it happened. When opened all previous text was gone.
    Well I expected some of this. So will go better prepared for next one.

    I agree about the calculator. The one provided by PCI was just as bad… typed number zero but it showed like a “J” . I had to make calculations multiple times to get the real final numbers

    Hi, I took and failed the PCM exam. Would you suggest that I continue studying and retake the PCM exam after 60 days? Or should i start studying and take the PJM exam instead?

    I’m not sure… I don’t have the money to keep on purchasing study materials and exam fees for those BS exams. In my opinion, the format of the exam doesn’t measure knowledge. A person that barely studied, may have the same or superior score of a person that studied a lot… it’s a matter of interpretation.

    Thank you, Alex Ruiz, for your detailed post. I actually found the whiteboard useful during my exam for noting down information, although I just typed them in. While some suggest practicing on tools like MS Paint, I personally don’t recommend it as it might not be the best use of your time. However, typing on the digital whiteboard can be handy to jot down notes so you don’t have to keep everything in memory during the test. Best of luck with your other exams.

    Rajiv Persad, if you have recently failed PcM, I recommend re-registering for the exam as soon as possible to keep the material fresh in your mind. It's also wise to bundle your exams like PcM, PjM, and CE since the study materials overlap, which can save you time from having to revisit the same content. Try to schedule them as closely together as possible according to your availability. I hope this helps. All the best!
